-- Yamal LNG LLC has selected Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. NV, The Hague, to provide front-end engineering and design for its Yamal LNG’s project. Work is to be completed in first-quarter 2012.

Yamal LNG encompasses production, treatment, transportation, liquefaction, and shipment of natural gas and NGLs from South Tambey field on the Yamal Peninsula in northern Siberia. Gas reserves in South Tambey are estimated at more than 1 trillion cu m, said the CB&I announcement.

CB&I’s project includes FEED development for the 16.5 million tonnes/year LNG liquefaction plant, including LNG storage and loading.
