Paris-based Technip was awarded an engineering, design and procurement contract worth approximately EUR35 million for a mid-scale liquefied natural gas plant.
Shaanxi LNG Investment & Development Co Ltd. granted Technip the contract. The plant will be located in the Yangling Demonstration Area, Shaanxi Province.
The contract covers the conceptual engineering study, the basic engineering design for its processes, basic engineering design and detailed design of the LNG storage tank, as well as procurement for key equipment including the main cryogenic heat exchanger, the mix refrigerant compressor, the boil-off gas compressor and the cryogenic control valves, among others. The LNG plant will have a capacity of 500,000 tons per year and will be based on an Air Products liquefaction process.
Technip's operating centers in Shanghai and Kuala Lumpur are executing the project, which is scheduled to be completed by mid-2014.
