Fluor to proceed with second offshore LNG plant
By Catrin Jones21 July 2022
Fluor Corporation has announced that it was awarded a full notice-to-proceed (FNTP) contract by New Fortress Energy Inc., for the engineering, procurement, and fabrication management of the NFE Fast LNG (liquified natural gas) 2 project located 26km off the southeast coast of Grand Isle, Louisiana, US.
The project is said to be a nominal 1.4 million tonnes per annum LNG gas treating and liquefaction plant to be placed on fixed offshore platforms. Fluor said that they will book the undisclosed reimbursable contract value in the second quarter of this year.
The Fast LNG 2 project is the second offshore modular mid-scale LNG plant that NFE has awarded to Fluor this year. The first NFE Fast LNG 1 project was awarded in the first quarter of this year and is said to be a similar modular mid-scale design being installed on repurposed drilling jack-up rigs.
The modular plant will be installed by others and will be available for dispatch to various locations globally providing NFE with the opportunity to access multiple gas supply sources.
Jim Breuer, Fluor’s Energy Solutions group president, said, “Fluor, in conjunction with key licensors and suppliers, provides NFE with an integrated modular mid-scale LNG export solution for these projects. The Fluor design and execution plan facilitates repeatable project models that can be used to replicate similar plants in the future.”
