A full commercial tender package has been issued to EPC contractors to submit final commercial bids for the proposed Lake Charles LNG liquefaction project being developed by Energy Transfer and Shell US LNG, LLC.
The project, if sanctioned by Energy Transfer and Shell, would modify Energy Transfer’s existing LNG import facility located in Lake Charles, Louisiana to add LNG liquefaction capacity of 16.45 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) for export to global markets. The commercial bids are expected to be received in the second quarter of 2020.
The commercial tender expands on the invitation to tender (ITT) announced in May 2019 that focused on the technical scope of project, specifically the contractors’ verification of the engineering and design of the proposed liquefaction facility. The commercial tender invites the EPC contractors to develop a comprehensive commercial bid for the lump sum turnkey contract based on a fully developed scope related to design, engineering, technical and safety specifications for the construction, commissioning and start-up of the proposed Lake Charles LNG project. The commercial tender also requires the submission by the contractors of a fully developed execution plan and completion schedule.
Shell will act as the Project Lead prior to the companies reaching a Final Investment Decision (FID), and if sanctioned, as Construction Manager and Operator of the facility. Energy Transfer will act as Site Manager and Project Coordinator prior to FID.
