Texas LNG Brownsville LLC has selected Samsung Engineering Co. Ltd and KBR Inc. to provide Texas LNG with pre-final investment decision (pre-FID) detailed engineering and post-final investment decision (post-FID) engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for its proposed LNG export facility.
Samsung Engineering is a minority equity owner and technical partner of Texas LNG. It has already completed the conceptual study, pre-front end engineering design (pre-FEED) and FEED for the LNG project.
Samsung Engineering and KBR will focus on value engineering and optimisation for the proposed 4 million tpy LNG export facility.
Pre-FID detailed engineering is expected to begin this year. It will include further design and schedule optimisation, identification of long lead items and early works commitments, early preparation of purchase orders, and all due diligence in relation to technical commercial and contractual matters that will enable Samsung Engineering and KBR to execute a lump sum turnkey (LSTK) EPC contract for the Texas LNG plant. Agreements between Texas LNG and Samsung Engineering/KBR for pre-FID Detailed Engineering and EPC will be negotiated over the coming months.
Executive Vice President and CMO of Samsung Engineering, Jae Hoon Choi, said: “We want to firmly establish our competitiveness in LNG and have successfully completed the Texas LNG FEED in 2016. We’ve formed a multidisciplinary LNG task force consisting of LNG liquefaction process engineers, modularisation specialists, and cost and schedule experts. Samsung Engineering and KBR will execute an EPC with Texas LNG and deliver a high-quality LNG plant at a world competitive price.”
FID for the development of the Texas LNG liquefaction project is expected in 2018.
