Kuwait National Petroleum Co (KNPC) has awarded a subsidiary of Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction Group the pre-front-end engineering design and the front-end engineering design contract for a new onshore LNG import and regasification terminal to be built in Kuwait. The new terminal will have a design send-out capacity of approximately 1,500 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d) of gas, with four full-containment LNG storage tanks, each of 180,000 cubic meters. The design will also allow for future expansion(s) up to 3,000 MMscf/d and the installation of a further four LNG storage tanks of the same capacity as the initial four tanks. Foster Wheeler will work with a local partner in executing this work, which is scheduled to be completed in October 2014. KNPC plans to start commercial operation of the terminal in 2020.
