In the statement, Amec Foster Wheeler claims that it will take part in the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) bid evaluation and provide engineering services. The expansion will involve the construction of a third storage tank, as well as additional equipment to help increase the terminal’s regasification capacity.

As part of a contract we will use our wide-ranging technical expertise and capabilities to deliver this LNG project.

“Amec Foster Wheeler was appointed the owner’s engineer during the first expansion of the plant and LNG truck-loading facility, and we’re looking forward to continuing our close partnership with GNL Quintero to maximise the value of its Chilean assets.”

The Quintero terminal’s LNG regasification capacity was initially expanded from 10 million m3/d to 15 million m3/d. This latest expansion will see the terminal’s regasification capacity increased even further to 20 million m3/d.
