JGC Group subsidiary JGC America has been awarded a basic engineering services contract by Odfjell Terminals for the possible development of an ethylene export terminal at its facility in Seabrook, Texas.
Under the contract, JGC will provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for Odfjell Terminals’ project. The proposed export terminal will be located adjacent to Odfjell’s existing liquids terminal, which is positioned nearby major ethylene pipeline corridors. The new terminal will allow for much faster turnaround of customer offtake carriers, than currently available terminals.
“Leveraging our cryogenic terminal and ethylene experience, we will work closely with Odfjell to develop and deliver a cost efficient execution strategy,” said Takehito Hidaka, president of JGC America, Inc.
