TechnipFMC has received a notice to proceed for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract worth over $1 billion by Sempra LNG and Infraestructura Energética Nova, SAB de CV (IEnova) at the Energía Costa Azul (ECA) LNG facility in Baja California, Mexico.
The project will add an LNG facility with a nameplate capacity of 3.25 million tpy to the existing regasification terminal using a compact and high efficiency mid-scale LNG design.
Arnaud Pieton, president of Technip Energies, said: “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.”
The 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 LNG’s 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 front-end engineering design (FEED).
