Saipem Snags New LNG Contract Worth 2.8B Euros



Saipem has been awarded a new onshore contract in Algeria worth approximately 2.8 billion Euros.

The Algerian oil company Sonatrach has awarded Saipem/Snamprogetti, in a joint venture with Chiyoda, the lump sum turn key contract for the new Arzew LNG Train (GL3Z) project. The contract encompasses the EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) of a single-train gas liquefaction (LNG) plant, with a capacity of 4.7 million tonnes of LNG per annum, to be constructed near the Algerian city of Arzew, about 400 kilometers west of Algiers.

This is the first time that Saipem has been named as the main contractor of a large gas liquefaction (LNG) plant, asserting its reputation as an integrated player, capable of managing large and complex turnkey projects in the high tech market of the LNG sector.

The works for the new Arzew LNG Train (GL3Z) will be completed by the end of 2012.
