Angola LNG Limited has given Bechtel's Oil, Gas & Chemicals global business unit (Bechtel) notice to proceed with construction of a 5.2 million-metric-ton-per-year liquefied natural gas (LNG) train, along with storage and marine loading facilities for LNG, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), and condensate.
Bechtel, in cooperation with ConocoPhillips under the ConocoPhillips-Bechtel Global LNG Collaboration, has been involved in detailed engineering and procurement for the Angola LNG liquefaction train since early 2007.
The plant, adjacent to the town of Soyo, Republic of Angola, will utilize ConocoPhillips’ Optimized Cascade(SM) LNG process and will produce LNG; LPGs, such as propane and butane; condensate; and domestic pipeline gas.
The Angola LNG project is an integrated gas utilization project encompassing offshore and onshore operations to monetize gas resources from blocks located offshore of Angola. The project will reduce natural gas flaring and greenhouse gas emissions from offshore oil producing areas, facilitate continued offshore oil field development, and contribute to the development of a future natural gas-based industry within Angola. Bechtel’s engineering, procurement, and construction contract covers the onshore portion of this project.
Bechtel is one of the world's premier engineering, construction, and project management companies. Bechtel’s Oil, Gas & Chemicals business unit has completed hundreds of projects in refining and chemicals, gas processing plants, gas field developments, and gas liquefaction capacity. Since its founding in 1898, Bechtel has worked on more than 22,000 projects in 140 countries on all 7 continents.
