KBR to study LNG regasification and gas supply for Indonesia’s PLN
- Project & Tenders
Houston-based LNG engineer, KBR, has won an engineering and design services contract from PT PLN in Indonesia, that includes a feasibility study for LNG regasification and gas supply to gas-fueled power plants.
The state-owned power generation company is looking to expand the gas supply infrastructure across Indonesia, KBR said in its statement.
The feasibility study to be performed by KBR will look into the possibility of developing a reliable, efficient and robust infrastructure and logistics ecosystem for the LNG regasification of and gas supply to the multiple gas fired power plants in Sumatera, Maluku and Papua provinces, with the potential for additional locations.
With the findings and recommendations from the feasibility study, KBR will then perform the front end engineering design (FEED) work for the proposed infrastructure schemes, developing preliminary engineering designs and technical design basis.
During the course of the project, KBR will also provide on-the-job training to PLN’s project team members, KBR said.
Both the feasibility study and FEED work are expected to be performed over approximately nine months.
