Liquefied Natural Gas

Workers at LNG plant

Providing cleaner energy and building opportunity

Liquid natural gas (LNG) remains the most effective transitional fuel as the world continues to drive toward renewable sources of energy. It releases less carbon, no ash, and no residue to pollute groundwater. We work alongside our customers throughout the entire lifecycle of LNG facilities as we continue to advance emission reduction initiatives.

Over the past two decades, we have designed and built about 30% of the world’s LNG capacity for our customers, which has helped to replace other fossil fuel sources like diesel and coal, decrease emissions in power generation and transportation services, and give developing regions greater access to more affordable energy to meet an ever-rising demand.

Our customers’ projects have created tens of thousands of jobs and provided skills and career opportunities that last a lifetime. As with all our projects, we recruit locally where the facilities are being built, offer trade and safety training opportunities during construction through operations, and support community development programs.  

Our integrated EPC direct-hire self-perform model has been proven by our unparalleled successful delivery of 16 LNG trains in the last six years.  We have built more than 130 tons per annum of liquefaction capacity in over 50 years of LNG execution experience.

Our specialized LNG services deliver solutions to support customers wherever they are in their energy transformation journey, whether their goal is to increase access to renewable energy sources, improve energy efficiency, or decarbonize their existing infrastructure across the project lifecycle.

Specialized LNG Services

LNG plant operators face an increasing demand to deliver a product that is economically attractive to their global customers as well as one that meets the growing environmental demands of the energy industry.

Addressing this demand requires specialized skills and expertise in LNG plant design, technology and innovative construction practices to deliver measurable improvements that meet our customer and community expectations.

Our specialized LNG services include:

  • Technical Advisory Services
  • LNG Decarbonization Services
  • Plant Support Services

LNG Technology Center of Excellence

We have an LNG Technology Center of Excellence which is solely dedicated to delivering design improvements, innovations and efficient execution of projects for our customers. Our LNG experts within the center deliver sustainable benefits which target certainty of outcome on the delivery of our projects from concept through design, commissioning, start up, performance testing and post plant turnover services. We have expertise in several liquefaction technologies including Optimized Cascade, C3 MR, DMR, SMR and Nitrogen cycles servicing plant capacities ranging from base load to medium scale and small scale LNG. We have established strong relationships with LNG market leading technology licensors such as ConocoPhillips, Air Products, Shell, Linde and Chart which enables us to evaluate and recommend optimal solutions that meet customer requirements.

Creating opportunity


Meeting supply and demand

Communities worldwide are struggling to maintain reliable energy solutions. While having a diverse energy portfolio - including renewables - is critical to ensure sustainable power, so is the ability to have immediate access to energy to meet demand when renewal options are offline.

We help our customers deliver a wide variety of storage solutions for LNG that enable access to needed energy.  Also, customers can purchase and store gas when LNG prices are low to maintain an affordable energy supply.
