Trunkline LNG Export, LLC awarded Technip a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the potential expansion of the existing liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal located in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

The potential expansion project includes a LNG liquefaction plant, with a total export capacity of up to approximately 15MPTA, so that a portion of the vast additional supplies of natural gas produced from shale gas fields across the US can be exported to international markets. The total liquefaction capacity could be achieved through up to three identical trains, with associated utilities and offsite facilities as well as the re-use of the existing LNG offloading, storage and marine facilities. Air Products has been selected to supply its C3MR liquefaction process technology for this FEED study.

Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas, will execute the contract with the support from Technip's center in Paris, France. It is scheduled for completion during 1H 2014.

Trunkline LNG Export LLC is a joint venture owned by Energy Transfer Equity, L.P. and Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. BG LNG Services, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of BG Group plc, will manage the design and construction of the Lake Charles facility as the appointed administrator under the FEED contract. The potential expansion project is contingent on final investment decisions by Energy Transfer and BG Group.
