Amec Foster bags EPC contract for LNG terminal in India

LONDON, UK: Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded an engineering procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Indian Oil LNG Private Ltd (IOLPL) for the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Ennore, Tamil Nadu, on the east coast of India.

This is a 42-month contract which will be delivered at the end of 2018.

As part of the new contract, Amec Foster Wheeler’s responsibilities include the supervision of works related to various EPC contracts for the LNG regasification and marine import facilities, as well as the LNG storage tanks. Amec Foster Wheeler will also undertake project management consultancy activities for the entire project, from engineering development and construction phases, through to pre-commissioning, commissioning and start-up of the terminal.

This award follows the successful completion of a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the terminal in 2012.

Following our successful completion of the FEED contract, delivering this next phase of this project reinforces our position as a leading provider of LNG services to the Indian domestic market,” said Roberto Penno, group president of AMEASE (Asia, Middle East, Africa and Southern Europe), Amec Foster Wheeler.
