Gulf Coast LNG project lets FERC FEED contract

Gulf LNG Liquefaction Co. LLC has hired KBR to provide a US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission front-end engineering and design (FEED) and prefiling services contract in support of Gulf LNG’s application to build an export plant at the existing LNG terminal near Pascagoula, Miss.

Under the contract, KBR will perform engineering for two 5-million-tonne/year LNG trains and associated facilities based on KBR’s design, which employs Air Products & Chemicals Inc.’s propane precooled mixed refrigerant (AP-C3MR) technology. KBR will also provide the technical documentation required by FERC during the prefiling process.

As have several other US LNG importers, Gulf LNG envisions the import site to become a natural gas export site. The import terminal began operations in 2011 (OGJ Online, Oct. 28, 2011).

Gulf LNG and Gulf LNG Energy are wholly owned subsidiaries of Gulf LNG Holdings Group LLC, which is held 50% by Southern Gulf LNG Co. LLC, itself a wholly owned subsidiary of El Paso Pipeline Partners LP; 38% directly and indirectly by GE Energy Financial Services; and 12% indirectly by other investors.
