The $1 billion project calls for the development of a single-train LNG complex with an estimated capacity of 3.5 million-4 million tons/year.

The contract calls for M.W. Kellogg to develop a detailed project specification for the proposed facility and prepare an engineering, procurement, and construction proposal for the execution phase of the project.

Design services will be carried out in the Halliburton affiliate's London office and will include the participation of a number of Union Fenosa engineers. The company should complete the design by March 2001. Award of the EPC contract is scheduled for summer 2001. The plant is expected to be operational by mid to end-2004.

The design project contract award follows the July signing of a contract for the supply of natural gas between Union Fenosa and the Egyptian General Petroleum Corp.
