Black & Veatch has announced that it has won a contract to provide critical elements of India’s first floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) based LNG import terminal.

The company was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Swan LNG Private Ltd. Under the terms of the agreement, Black & Veatch will deliver the jetty topside and onshore LNG facilities for the 5 million tpy plant at Jafrabad in Gujurat. The new floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) will be moored to a fixed jetty and will regasify imported LNG to enable distribution by pipeline and road tanker. Black & Veatch claims that the facility is expected to come on-stream by early 2020.

The Managing Director of Black & Veatch India, Rajiv Menon, said: “The Indian government aims to significantly increase LNG import capacity by 2022. This project is a major step in this direction."

"The Jafrabad project, along with the Indian Oil Corp.'s LNG receiving terminal project at Ennore, signifies the trust placed by the industry in Black & Veatch to deliver LNG projects."
