Black & Veatch wins India's first floating LNG project
Black & Veatch will deliver critical elements of India's first floating storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal. The project will help develop the Indian gas market, which is projected to be one of the fastest growing in the world during the next two decades.
Swan LNG Private Limited (a subsidiary of Swan Energy Limited) has awarded Black & Veatch the EPC contract to deliver the jetty topside and onshore LNG facilities for the 5 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) plant at Jafrabad in Gujarat. The new FSRU will be moored to a fixed jetty and regasify imported LNG to enable distribution by pipeline and road tanker. The facility is expected to go on-stream by early-2020.
Rajiv Menon, Managing Director, Black & Veatch India said, “GoI aims to significantly increase LNG import capacity by 2022. This project is a major step in this direction. The Jafrabad project, along with the IOC's LNG receiving terminal project at Ennore, signifies the trust placed by the industry in Black & Veatch to deliver LNG projects.”
