KBR Awarded FERC FEED Contract for Gulf Liquefaction Project
KBR announced that the company has been awarded a contract by Gulf LNG Liquefaction Company, an affiliate of Gulf LNG Energy.
KBR has to provide Federal Energy Regulatory Commission FEED engineering and FERC report pre-filing services to support the addition of ten million metric tons per year of liquefaction and export capabilities to GLE’s existing liquefied natural gas import terminal, Gulf LNG terminal, located in Jackson County, Missouri. The contract value was not disclosed.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will perform FERC FEED engineering for two LNG trains (each five million metric tons per year) and associated facilities based on KBR’s proven reference design using APCI C3MR Technology. Additionally, KBR will provide the technical documentation required by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) during the pre-filing process.
These facilities will allow the terminal to liquefy domestic natural gas delivered by pipeline, store the LNG in the terminal’s existing LNG storage tanks, and load it into LNG vessels via the terminal’s existing marine jetty. The terminal will retain its current capability to receive, store, re-gasify, and deliver natural gas into the interstate pipeline system as originally constructed, thereby making the Gulf LNG Terminal bi-directional.
