Company Brings World-Class LNG Project Delivery Experience
"Bechtel brings world-class expertise in the engineering, design, and construction of LNG liquefaction projects coupled with leadership in modularization and Gulf Coast self-perform work," said Jim Lindsay, chief executive officer of Louisiana LNG Energy.
“This is an exciting project that will harness the region’s energy potential,” said Jack Futcher, president of Bechtel’s Oil, Gas & Chemicals business unit. “We will apply our extensive project delivery experience to provide Louisiana LNG Energy the most efficient design for fast-track construction of the facility. We look forward to working with them.”
The new facility will have an initial export capacity of 2 million metric tons per annum of liquefied gas and will use Chart Energy and Chemicals’ proprietary liquefaction technology. The export terminal will be positioned to serve large liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers. Completion of the project is expected in late 2017.
Bechtel is the global leader in the LNG industry. The company is responsible for a third of LNG liquefaction capacity under construction today, including four projects in Australia and the first LNG export facility in the United States.
