Aqaba Development Corporation (ADC) has awarded BAM International, the operating company of Royal BAM Group, a contract to design and construct the new Aqaba liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, 18 km south of Aqaba.
The contract is worth approximately €47 million, and includes the design and construction of an LNG jetty with approach trestle, including the mechanical, engineering and piping services.
BAM International and its joint venture partner MAG Engineering & Contracting expect to complete this project in 15 months.
The LNG terminal forms part of ADC’s plan for developing energy ports in Aqaba. The government has asked ADC to develop Jordan’s energy intake capabilities to ensure a consistent supply of energy fuels to the country including oil, LNG and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
BAM has recently completed the extension of Aqaba Container Terminal, which is set to be a key development in Jordan. In addition, BAM is currently building the quay wall for the Aqaba New Port project, a second port in line with the country’s economic master plan, which is scheduled for completion in early 2014.
