Indian Oil Corp. Ltd (IOCL) has awarded KSS Petron India, a Black & Veatch led consortium, a contract for a new LNG receiving terminal at Ennore, in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
Black & Veatch will lead the engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and commissioning work on a turnkey basis. The LNG plant is scheduled to be completed by 2018.
G. Sathiamoorthy, Managing Director of Black & Veatch India, said: “The Ennore LNG project is vital for gas supply and furthers our established brand as a proven tier-one global EPC provider.”
IOCL’s Ennore LNG terminal will be the first-of-its-kind on India’s east coast. With a send-out capacity of 5 million t, the regasification terminal paves the way for supply of LNG to high gas demand southern states, particularly Tamil Nadu and some parts of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. As a result, the LNG project is expected to aid further industrial growth in the region.
“We are immensely happy to be delivering this world-class LNG project for IOCL, and look forward to working closely with them and other clients in the region in the future. The win reinforces our position as a partner of choice for critical infrastructure projects in energy, water and telecom,” added Sathiamoorthy.
