Arup nets Indonesia LNG terminal contract
Engineering and consulting firm Arup said it has won a contract for Australasia LNG’s proposed terminal in Probolinggo, Indonesia.
Under the deal, Arup will deliver pre-front end engineering and design (FEED) for the marine infrastructure and vessel conversion for the 2.4 mtpa Probolinggo LNG terminal.
Providing geotechnical, civil, naval architecture, and mechanical engineering support, Arup will advise on the conversion of an LNG carrier into a floating storage unit (FSU) which will be permanently moored offshore for the design life, without the need of dry-docking, the company said in its statement.
Arup is also advising on the 2.5 kilometre jetty, unloading platform and associated berthing infrastructure, required to bring the LNG onshore to be regasified.
According to Arup, the project is expected to shortly progress to FEED and final investment decision stages, with potential to carry out tank testing in the next stage of the commission to address LNG sloshing.
