Black & Veatch will deliver critical elements of India's first floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal. The project will help develop the Indian gas market, which is expected to be one of the fastest growing in the world during the next two decades.
Swan LNG Private Ltd (a subsidiary of Swan Energy Ltd) has awarded Black & Veatch the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to deliver the jetty topside and onshore LNG facilities for the 5 million metric tpy plant at Jafrabad in Gujarat. The new FSRU will be moored to a fixed jetty and regasify imported LNG to enable distribution by pipeline and road tanker. The facility is projected to go on-stream by early-2020.
Rajiv Menon, Managing Director, Black & Veatch India said: “The Indian government aims to significantly increase LNG import capacity by 2022. This project is a major step in this direction."
"The Jafrabad project, along with the Indian Oil Corp.'s LNG receiving terminal project at Ennore, signifies the trust placed by the industry in Black & Veatch to deliver LNG projects,” Menon added.
