TechnipFMC receives notice to proceed with EPC contract for LNG facility

November 24/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- TechnipFMC has received a Notice to Proceed for a major EPC contract by Sempra LNG and Infraestructura Energetica Nova, S.A.B. de C.V. (IEnova) at their Energia Costa Azul (ECA) LNG facility in Baja California, Mexico, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The project will add a natural gas liquefaction facility with nameplate capacity of 3.25 MMtpy to the existing regasification terminal using a compact and high efficiency mid-scale LNG design.

This addition will allow for natural gas liquefaction and LNG export capability at the ECA LNG facility, which has been operating as a regasification terminal since 2008. ECA LNG is one of Sempra LNGs strategically located natural gas liquefaction infrastructure projects currently in development in North America.

TechnipFMC has been involved in this project since 2017, including the delivery of the FEED.

Arnaud Pieton, President of Technip Energies, stated: We are very pleased to have been selected by Sempra LNG and IEnova for this strategic development. This project is fully aligned with our selective approach through very early stage involvement. We look forward to bringing our global project execution capabilities and our extensive LNG track record to this exciting project. LNG plays a major role in the energy transition, and we are proud to leverage our expertise to support this journey.

As MRC wrote previously, in October 2020, TechnipFMC said it had been awarded a contract by Shell to supply eight new ethylene furnaces at the Moerdijk petrochemicals complex in the Netherlands. The contract is described as significant by TechnipFMC, a term it uses to cover value between USD75 million and USD250 million.

Ethylene is the main feedstock for the production of polyethylene (PE).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,594,510 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020, up by 1% year on year. Only high denstiy polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased.
