New Fortress Energy last week awarded Fluor Corp. a contract for engineering, procurement, and fabrication management of the 1.4-million tpy NFE Fast LNG 2 project. The project includes offshore gas treatment and liquefaction plants.

New Fortress Energy (NFE) Inc. last week awarded Fluor Corp. a full notice-to-proceed contract for engineering, procurement, and fabrication management of the 1.4-million tonne/year (tpy) NFE Fast LNG 2 project. The project includes gas treatment and liquefaction plants to be placed on fixed offshore platforms at a yet-to-be-determined location as market conditions warrant.  

NFE awarded a similar project, NFE Fast LNG 1, to Flour first-quarter 2022. Both will use repurposed drilling jack-up rigs as their bases.  

The modular plants are part of NFE’s strategy to access multiple natural gas supply sources around the world as opportunities emerge.

Fluor will book the undisclosed reimbursable contract value in second-quarter 2022.
