May 27, 2019 [Tank News International] – Freeport LNG has selected KBR, Inc. for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPC) contract for Train 4 at its LNG export facility near Freeport, Texas.
KBR stated that it will provide engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and startup of a nominal 5-million ton per annum (mtpa) LNG train and associated gas pre-treatment plant under the anticipated EPC contract. It was selected following a nine-month front-end engineering and design (FEED) verification, execution planning and EPC proposal process.
Freeport LNG is adding a fourth liquefaction train adjacent to the first three trains at its facility on Quintana Island in Brazoria County, Texas. The new 5-mtpa Train 4 will raise the facility’s total LNG export capacity to 20 mtpa.
The fixed price EPC contract should be concluded this quarter. In addition, the company stated that it expects a subsequent limited notice to proceed period that will include early engineering and commitment of critical long-lead equipment orders.
