Freeport Liquefaction project gets FEED contract

By OGJ editors

Freeport LNG Expansion LP and a joint venture of Zachry Industrial Inc. and CB&I Inc. have agreed to a front-end engineering and design contract for the Freeport Liquefaction Project near Freeport, Tex.

Under the contract, the Zachry-CB&I JV will engineer and design three natural gas liquefaction trains of 4.4 tonnes/year each and related pretreatment to be located near the existing Freeport LNG regasification terminal. That terminal is owned and operated by Freeport LNG parent Freeport LNG Development LP.

Within the three-train design, the joint venture will develop a fixed-price, fixed-schedule proposal for both a one-train initial development and a two-train initial development. This approach will allow Freeport LNG to choose the optimum size of the initial phase of the project “based upon customer demand and financing considerations,” according to the announcement.

In addition, design of the three-train project will allow for the “efficient expansion of additional liquefaction train(s) and pretreatment” after the initial development has begun, it said.

Zachry was part of the consortium that designed and built the Freeport LNG regasification terminal. In 2010, CB&I completed turnkey design, engineering, and construction of a similarly sized LNG liquefaction train near Lima, Peru. That project, said the announcement, “used technologies and design requirements similar to those anticipated” for Freeport liquefaction. In addition, CB&I recently completed design, engineering, and construction of ExxonMobil’s Golden Pass LNG terminal near Sabine Pass, Tex.
