Texas LNG Selects Engineering Firms to Build Plant

Texas LNG contracted Samsung Engineering and KBR, Inc. to design and build its LNG export facility proposed at the Port of Brownsville.

Samsung Engineering and KBR will provide Texas LNG with pre-final investment decision (pre-FID) detailed engineering and post-final investment decision (post-FID) engineering, procurement and construction services for its proposed 4 million tons per year LNG export facility.

Samsung Engineering has already completed the conceptual study, pre-front end engineering design (Pre-FEED) and FEED for the project.

The Pre-FID detailed engineering, expected to begin this year, will include further design and schedule optimization, 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 engineering, procurement and construction contract for the Texas LNG plant.

Texas LNG recently executed detailed non-binding term sheets with four independent LNG buyers in Southeast Asia and China for a volume of 3.1 million tons per year.

Final investment decision for the project is expected in 2018.

The Port of Brownsville is the site of two other LNG proposed projects. All three projects are currently under review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
