Bechtel Proceeds with LNG Construction in Angola


Bechtel, in cooperation with ConocoPhillips under the ConocoPhillips-Bechtel Global LNG Collaboration, has been involved in detailed engineering and procurement for the Angola LNG liquefaction train since early 2007. “The first LNG production is slated for early 2012,” says Bechtel Project Director José Ivo.

The plant, adjacent to the town of Soyo, Republic of Angola, will utilize ConocoPhillips’ Optimized Cascade(SM) LNG process and will produce LNG; LPGs, such as propane and butane; condensate; and domestic pipeline gas.

The Angola LNG project is an integrated gas utilization project encompassing offshore and onshore operations to monetize gas resources from blocks located offshore of Angola.  The project will reduce natural gas flaring and greenhouse gas emissions from offshore oil producing areas, facilitate continued offshore oil field development, and contribute to the development of a future natural gas-based industry within Angola. Bechtel’s engineering, procurement, and construction contract covers the onshore portion of this project.
