LNG train in Oman

Foster Wheeler Ltd has announced that Chiyoda-Foster Wheeler and Company LLC has been awarded a contract by the government of Oman for the detailed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) train at Qalhat, near Sur, Oman. The contract includes construction of additional LNG storage facilities as an option. Currently, the formation of a new joint venture is under way with the Government of Oman, Oman LNG LLC and Union Fenosa SA as shareholders. The EPC contract will be transferred to the new joint venture in due course. The new LNG train will be built adjacent to the existing Oman LNG complex at Qalhat, where two identical LNG trains, each with a capacity of 3.3 million tonnes per year, have been operating since early 2000. The new LNG train is expected to be onstream by the end of 2005 to enable the new joint venture to begin LNG supply to Union Fenosa in early 2006.
