The partnership consists of Spain’s Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios, Sener, and Germany’s TGE Gas Engineering.

This final phase will consist of a “comprehensive value-improvement exercise and a detailed price actualization” to make the LNG project more cost efficient.

The German LNG project, owned by Dutch Gasunie and Vopak, and Germany’s Oiltanking, plans to sign a binding EPC contract by the end of 2020.

Following the final deal, work would start on detailed design and engineering, necessary to develop purchase orders of long-lead items.

The LNG project started international prequalification process to select EPC contractor back in June 2019 announcing a shortlist in October the same year.

The contract scope includes a jetty with two berths, with both unloading and loading capabilities, for LNG carriers ranging from 1,000 up to 265,000-cbm.

The terminal will have storage tanks and LNG regasification and distribution facilities for a total capacity up to 8 bcm per year.

The project developer says it is also in the process of completing the permit application for the planning of the port infrastructure, including the waterside facilities.
