HOUSTON, Feb. 14
�Spanish utility Union Fenosa has awarded M.W. Kellogg Ltd., the London affiliate of Halliburton Co.'s Kellogg Brown & Root, a contract to provide basic engineering design for a proposed liquefied natural gas receiving terminal.

The proposed terminal would be built at Sagunto Harbour, Valencia, Spain. The $240 million project would include an estimated storage capacity of 450,000 cu m and a nominal LNG vaporization capacity of 5 billion cu m/year.

M.W. Kellogg will develop the design and prepare engineering, procurement, and construction inquiry packages for the LNG tanks and the rest of the terminal. M.W. Kellogg should complete its work by April, and award of the EPC contract is scheduled for midyear.

�We are delighted that Union Fenosa has selected MWKL to work with them on this major terminal development project,� said Stewart Watson, M.W. Kellogg Ltd. director of operations. �We are now working with Union Fenosa on both the proposed liquefaction plant in Egypt and the receiving terminal in Spain. We are looking forward to utilizing our extensive Spanish LNG terminal experience on this important development.�

The terminal is expected to be operational in 2004.
