HOUSTON, TX., September 2, 2017 - Badak Chiyoda Enerproco LLC ("BChE"), a global leader in EPC/S reported its first contractor deployment activity to the Cameron LNG Liquefaction project in Hackberry, LA, U.S.A.
"The selection of CB&I and Chiyoda as contractors represents another significant milestone in the development of Cameron LNG liquefaction-export project," said Octavio M. Simoes, Sempra LNG's President. "The engineering, procurement and construction companies we've selected have the qualifications to build large liquefaction and energy infrastructure projects as well as a firm commitment to support our project's neighbors in southwest Louisiana."
The $6 billion contract will include procurement, engineering and construction of natural gas liquefaction and export facilities that will be added to the existing LNC regasification facility. It's expected to create about 3,000 on-site jobs including several hundred jobs at CB&I's fabrication facilities in Louisiana. Additionally, officials expect several hundred engineering and project management jobs at its Baton Rouge office that will support design, fabrication and construction of the new facilities.
According to the company, the Cameron Liquefaction Project will be comprised of three liquefaction trains with a capacity of about 13.5 million tons per year of LNG. In February 2014, Cameron received conditional authorization from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to export domestically produced LNG to countries that do not have a free trade agreement with the U.S., including those in Europe and Asia.
Shogo Shibuya, Chiyoda's president and CEO who says the company accounts for more than 40 percent of the world's total LNG production capacity, said, "Chiyoda has been accelerating its involvement in the development of LNG projects in North America, based on its innovative plant design and world-class project execution capabilities, with a relentless drive for safety and contributing to the local community."
