Duro Felguera (DF) has been awarded a US$175 million contract from Octopus LNG SpA for the Penco Lirquén LNG Terminal project in Chile.
DF will deliver the LNG terminal on a turnkey basis. The contract consists of the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and start-up for an offshore maritime LNG regasification terminal island. The terminal will be prepared to receive, store and regasify LNG and to transfer natural gas to land, by means of an underwater and land based gas duct. The project has an estimated delivery date in June 2018.
Located in Concepción Bay (Region 8 of Chile), the new LNG terminal will be capable of berthing two ships, one of them a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) permanently berthed and connected to the terminal, which will store and regasify the LNG; and a second transport vessel, which will supply the FSRU with LNG. The regasified gas will be taken on land via a duct partly underwater and partly on land, which will be linked to the existing natural gas network to supply a major part of the industrial and residential sectors in the region. The project's natural gas emission capacity will be 15 million m3/d.
