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."
