HOUSTON, July 5 -- Lithuania state oil company Klaipedos Nafta AB has awarded Fluor Corp. a contract to provide engineering and business support for a floating LNG import terminal at Klaipeda, Lithuania. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in this year’s second quarter.

Under the contract, Fluor will provide engineering, technical, risk management, safety, and environmental advisory services. It will prepare the technical development plan and assist in selecting technologies, as well as developing a business plan for the terminal, the company said.

Floating or dock-based LNG regasification technologies are currently in use in the US, Brazil, Argentina, UK, Kuwait, and Abu Dhabi. Fluor’s announcement did not specify which technologies were being considered. Italy’s Adriatic LNG operates from a gravity-based platform off Porto Levante.

Fluor said it has previous experience in Lithuania as the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor for the Butinge oil terminal Mazeikui Nafta in Butinge in 1999. Klaipedos Nafta operates an oil terminal in the city of Klaipeda, on the Baltic Sea.
