Technip to Supply Engineering for Monkey Island LNG Terminal

France's Technip has been awarded a Master Services Agreement by SCT&E LNG to supply engineering services for a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal that will be located on Monkey Island, Louisiana, U.S.

Under the MSA, Technip will provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services as well as support the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) process for the 12-million-ton-per-annum (mtpa) terminal. The terminal will comprise three identical 4-mtpa natural gas liquefaction trains, along with the necessary utilities, storage and marine facilities.

Technip's operating center in Houston, Texas, will execute the contract.

Harvey Vigneault, Technip North America chief operating officer for the firm's Onshore Business Unit, commented in a company statement:

"We are very proud to have been selected to support SCT&E LNG in their significant project venture. Our experienced team of LNG and project professionals will utilize their extensive experience and expertise to place the Monkey Island LNG project in the best position moving forward. This award will add to Technip's depth of recent projects the company has participated in along the U.S. Gulf Coast region, as well as strengthen its longstanding leadership position in LNG projects globally."
