NFE awards Fast LNG 2 project contract to Fluor

U.S. energy company New Fortress Energy (NFE) has awarded a full notice-to-proceed (FNTP) contract to Texas-based engineering firm Fluor for the engineering, procurement and fabrication management of the NFE Fast LNG 2 project.

Fluor Corporation revealed the contract on 11 July in an official press release. The company’s work in LNG usually includes feasibility studies, technology evaluations, basic design, front-end engineering and design (FEED), detailed engineering, procurement, construction, and start-up assistance.

The project is a nominal 1.4 million tonnes per annum LNG gas treating and liquefaction plant that will be placed on fixed offshore platforms.

Fluor said it will book the undisclosed reimbursable contract value in the second quarter of 2022.

“Fluor, in conjunction with key licensors and suppliers, provides NFE with an integrated modular mid-scale LNG export solution for these projects,” said Jim Breuer, Fluor’s Energy Solutions group president. “The Fluor design and execution plan facilitates repeatable project models that can be used to replicate similar plants in the future.”

NFE’s Fast LNG liquefaction design pairs advancements in modular, midsize liquefaction tech with jack-up rigs or similar floating infrastructure. Thus, it is enabling a much lower cost and faster deployment than today’s floating liquefaction vessels.

The Fast LNG 2 project is another offshore modular mid-scale LNG plant that NFE has awarded to Fluor this year. The first NFE Fast LNG 1 project was awarded in the first quarter of 2022 and is a similar modular mid-scale design.

Furthermore, others will install this modular plant and make it available for dispatch to various locations worldwide, providing NFE the opportunity to access multiple gas supply sources.
