Hyundai E&C, Hyundai Engineering and Korea Gas Corporation (Kogas) consortium has recently won a KRW3.6 trillion (US$2.93 billion) contract to build a liquefied natural gas plant in Kuwait. 

The deal was awarded by the state-owned Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC).

Under the contract Hyundai E&C will be in charge of construction of eight LNG storage tanks and the docking facilities at the Al-Zour LNG import terminal, 90 kilometers south of Kuwait’s capital, Kuwait City, the consortium said in a statement.

Hyundai Engineering has been chosen to build the regasification facility while Kogas is in charge of commissioning and operation training for KNPC, the consortium said.
