LNG plant in NZ?

New Zealand’s two largest gas users, Contact Energy and state-owned generator Genesis Power, have appointed Kellogg Brown & Root, the engineering and construction subsidiary of American oil company Halliburton, to study the feasibility of an LNG terminal in New Zealand. KB&R is one of two companies appointed by Contact and Genesis to study the cost, logistics and market implications of importing LNG. The proposed terminal would need to be able to receive LNG from a ship, provide regasification facilities to turn the liquid back into gas, have appropriate storage tanks, and provide a way to pipe the gas into existing pipelines. The second adviser, Poten & Partners, will advise Contact and Genesis on how the LNG could be integrated with existing and future gas supplies. Poten & Partners will advise on the ideal capacity for a terminal in New Zealand, storage needs, and what kind of shipping and procurement plans would be needed to ensure an ongoing supply. Local companies have also been engaged by Contact and Genesis to consider potential sites for a terminal.
