VINCI Scores Contract for Yamal LNG Storage Tanks
Entrepose Contracting and VINCI Construction Grands Projets, both subsidiaries of VINCI, have been awarded a contract with JSC Yamal LNG, owned by NOVATEK (80 %) and TOTAL (20 %), to perform an engineering, procurement, supply, construction and commissioning of four cryogenic full-containment LNG storage tanks.
Each LNG tank will be composed of a 9% nickel stainless steel interior container and a pre-stressed concrete external container, with a capacity of 160,000 cubic meters each.
These tanks will form part of a 16.5 million tons per annum natural gas liquefaction project, which will utilise the resources of the South Tambey Gas Condensate Field situated in the Yamal Peninsula in the Russian Federation.
In order to meet the project schedule requirements to make the first 2 tanks available in 2016, the detailed engineering, supply of the first equipment, camps, temporary facilities and piling works in the permafrost were started in June 2013 under a Letter of Award arrangement.
Entrepose Contracting and VINCI Construction Grands Projets have a track record of building more than 30 LNG storage tanks in 11 different countries.
