Halliburton KBR and JGC have been awarded a contract to provide Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for the terminal portion of Guangdong LNG’s (GLNG) Terminal and Trunkline Project’s proposed Chinese Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project in the Guangdong Province in southern China. The overall project, estimated at approximately USD 600 million, comprises both an LNG receiving terminal with an initial capacity of 3 Mtpa (million tons per annum) and a 300km natural gas distribution pipeline system. Halliburton KBR is the engineering and construction segment of Halliburton. The contract will be executed in two phases. During the conceptual phase, the LNG terminal design will be optimised within the context of the overall project, and during the front-end engineering phase, the design for the terminal will be developed. Conceptual work will be undertaken in the London offices of M.W. Kellogg Limited while execution of the FEED phase will occur in JGC’s offices in Yokohama, Japan. The FEED is scheduled for completion by the first quarter of 2002.
