Wood awarded US$12 million FEED contract
Honghua Group Ltd has awarded Wood plc a US$12 million front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for its LNG platform development in the West Delta area of the Gulf of Mexico.
The main objective of the FEED is to finalise the design of the world’s first offshore platform based natural gas liquefaction and storage facility.
The scope of work includes the onshore gas pre-treatment plant configuration and layouts, general utilities, and feed gas processing and compression.
It also includes the transportation and delivery of gas from Louisiana’s existing onshore facilities Toca and Venice to the LNG facility located 16 km offshore.
Wood will compile and develop the necessary technical documentation for a deep water port permit application to United States Maritime Administration, which includes the design of the onshore, pipelines and offshore elements of the facility
As Wood has completed a pre-FEED for the project, it will now update and complete the preliminary design of the full offshore gas liquefaction facility.
“We are very excited to be a part of this ingenious project,” Wood Asset Solutions America CEO Andrew Stewart said.
“Our ability to provide innovative engineering design solutions highlights our global success in working with international partners.
“Wood’s best-in-class planning, execution and delivery performance helps to assure our clients their projects will be successful.”
The facility will be designed to produce up to 4.2 million t per year of LNG and to store 300,000 m3 of LNG.
When it is completed, gas from the Texas Permian Basin will be transported to the offshore platform where it will be liquefied, stored and ultimately exported globally.
It is anticipated to be completed in 2020.
