Engineering company Bechtel announced it has signed four deals, of $15.2 billion total worth, regarding the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the Driftwood LNG project, near Lake Charles, Louisiana, with US-based Tellurian.

The construction of the project is set to begin in 2018 with the first LNG produced in 2022.

The four agreements will cover four phases of the construction process.

Driftwood will be constructed in four phases:

  • Phase 1: Up to 11 mtpa of LNG from 8 units, storage tanks 1 & 2, loading berth 1 and related utilities
  • Phase 2: Up to 5.5 mtpa of LNG from 4 units, loading berth 2 and related utilities
  • Phase 3: Up to 5.5 mtpa of LNG from 4 units, storage tank 3, loading berth 3 and related utilities
  • Phase 4: Up to 5.5 mtpa of LNG from 4 units and related utilities

At full capacity, the facility will be able to produce up to 27.6 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG.

Furthermore, as Tellurian notes, the project will include the following:

  • Twenty liquefaction units, each expected to produce up to 1.38 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG,
  • Liquefaction technology from Chart Industries’ proprietary Integrated Pre-cooled Single Mixed Refrigerant (IPSMR®) process,
  • Twenty GE refrigeration compressors, each driven by GE aero derivative natural gas turbines,
  • Three 235,000 cubic meter, full containment LNG storage tanks,
  • Three marine loading berths.

“Our collaboration with Tellurian on the Driftwood LNG project will deliver a low-cost LNG facility that is more flexible to changing market conditions. Our record of completing 11 LNG trains in the past three years is unmatched in the industry and we look forward to delivering Driftwood LNG by deploying our proven self-perform model with fully integrated engineering, procurement and construction activities throughout the project life-cycle,” said Alasdair Cathcart, President Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals.

The arrival of an LNG plant is an important first step towards the port's goal of being fossil-free in 2045. The initiative also comes in line with the partly EU-funded Bothnia project, which seeks to upgrade the existing maritime link between ports in the Baltic Sea, to further comply with the environmental regulations.
