Mexico's Altamira LNG terminal progresses

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Mar. 22 -- Terminal de LNG de Altamira S de RL de CV—a joint venture of Royal Dutch/Shell Group and Total Group—awarded a contract to Gardner Denver affiliate Emco Wheaton of Kirchhain, Germany, to provide and install four marine loading arms at the JV's planned LNG regasification terminal at Altamira, Tamaulipas, on Mexico's gulf coast.

The terminal will include LNG unloading and ship berthing facilities, two 150,000 cu m double containment LNG storage tanks, regasification facilities, and related utilities. Emco Wheaton said B0300 series marine loading arms, each with a supporting structure to carry the cryogenic products pipe, will be installed for the unloading of ships with capacities of 70,000-200,000 cu m.

A consortium of Ishikawajima Harima Heavy Industries (IHI); Fluor Daniel Inc.; and ICA Mexico, which is jointly owned by Fluor and Empresas ICA Sociedad Controladora, earlier was awarded the contract to provide engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of the terminal (OGJ Online, Dec. 19, 2003). IHI is the consortium representative and technical leader, and ICA Fluor is overall project manager and is providing all local services.

The terminal, expected to take 36 months to complete, will supply northeast Mexico with 5 billion cu m/year of natural gas for 15 years.
