JGC Awarded FEED and EPC Bid Agreement contract for expansion of Cameron LNG facilities in United States
JGC Holdings Corporation (Representative Director, Chairman and CEO Masayuki Sato) announced today that JGC America, Inc., its 100% owned affiliate in United States, together with joint venture partner Zachry Industrial, Inc. (JZJV), has been awarded a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Bid Agreement contract for the Cameron LNG Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) expansion project located in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, under a competitive dual FEED process.
Currently Cameron LNG operates three natural gas liquefaction trains (annual production of approx. 12 million tons). The expansion project is aimed to enlarge production capacity by adding a fourth train (maximum annual production of approx. 6.75 million tons) to the existing trains utilizing electric drive (E-drive) motors. Usage of E-drive instead of gas turbine drives, is expected to allow for significant reduction in carbon emissions.
JZJV will be responsible for the FEED design work as well as submission of an EPC bid.
Amid the rapid global trend toward low-carbon and decarbonization, LNG, which has less environmental impact than other fossil fuels, plays an extremely important role in promoting energy transitions. JGC has been responsible for executing LNG plants that account for approximately 30% of global LNG production. Currently, JGC is executing two LNG projects, including LNG Canada and a FLNG (Floating LNG) plant off the coast of Mozambique.
As a top LNG contractor in the field of LNG, JGC will continue to lead the industry through its strong business activities and respond to the growing demand of electric drive (E-drive) motors.
