We place candidates on some of the world's most exciting engineering and energy projects - from Gorgon in Australia to USAN in Nigeria. We represent all disciplines, from geologists and designers to drilling and subsea engineers.
Sabine Pass LNG, LA
Corpus Christi LNG, TX
The Sabine Pass LNG facility is located in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. It consists of a 40ft ship channel 3.7mi from the coast. It currently has five LNG storage tanks with approximately 17 Bcf storage capacity, 4.3 Bcf/d peak regasification capacity and 5.3 Bcf/d of pipeline interconnection to the US pipeline network.
North America's first natural gas liquefaction facilities will be built at the LNG facility – a total of 6 trains with a TIC of approximately $18million.
Corpus Christ LNG is the construction of an LNG liquefaction plant located at the site of a previously permitted regasification terminal in Corpus Christi. The plant will consist of three liquefaction trains with a total capacity of approximately 13.5 mtpa. The project will include two initial Liquefaction trains costing $11.5billion.
The construction of an LNG plant fed by the offshore Mamba-Prosperidade complex in Mozambique. Phase 1 of the project will involve the construction of two trains each with a capacity of 5 mtpa. However, this project may involve the construction of up to 12 trains over time. A 200,000 cubic metre storage tank will be built for the first train with scope to build additional similar sized tanks when capacity from further trains comes online.
LNG Canada is a proposed construction of an LNG liquefaction export facility consisting of two trains each with a capacity of 6 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) located in Kitimat, British Columbia. The project will include two 225,000 cubic metres LNG storage tanks, plant piping, process cooling towers and facility site flare systems. The water intake structure on the Kitimat River will also be increased. A further two trains are also planned to come online at six month intervals following the terminals start-up, increasing total capacity to 24 Mtpa
Lake Charles LNG is the Construction of an LNG liquefaction plant located at Lake Charles, Louisiana. The facility will comprise three liquefaction trains which will process 2 Bcf/d of gas into 15 mtpa of LNG. The project will use existing LNG re-gas infrastructure including storage tanks, terminal facilities, etc. At its peak, the project will create about 5,000 jobs. The project is also known as trunk line LNG.
Lake Charles is expected to come online one liquefaction train at a time, with six month intervals between each of the three trains. Each liquefaction train has a planned capacity to produce 5.48 million tons per year of liquefied gas.
Cove Point LNG Terminal is an offshore liquid natural gas shipping terminal. It is located near Lusby, Maryland, United States, on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay, which receives imported liquefied natural gas (LNG) and also stores gas. LNG arrives on specially designed ships known as LNG carriers.
The shipping dock is located about 2.3 kilometres (1.4 mi) from the plant's storage tanks and is connected by pipes in an underwater tunnel. The site also contains a gasification plant. The terminal is owned by Dominion Resources
The expansion of the Cameron LNG’s existing three-train liquefaction export project in Hackberry, La is expected to include two additional liquefaction trains (trains No. 4 and No. 5) and one additional full containment LNG storage tank.
The expansion project is capable of increasing LNG production capacity by 9.97 million metric tons per annum (Mtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG), or 1.41 billion cubic feet per day (Bcfd). Cameron LNG's export capacity will be 24.92 Mtpa, or 3.53 Bcfd and will allow the company to export additional LNG from low-cost, reliable U.S. LNG supplies to international markets.
A four-train liquefaction facility with a total capacity of 15 million metric tonnes per annum (tpa). The four trains use the Phillips Optimised Cascade Process which cools natural gas using refrigerants until it liquefies at atmospheric pressure. The facility also includes a port area with two (2) 700-metre jetties, an approach channel used by LNG carriers to berth at the jetty, and a turning basin. Each jetty can accommodate an LNG carrier of approximately 145,000 cubic metres in size.
Atlantic operates and manages four (4) LNG Trains. Each Train is ultimately owned by a holding company comprised of different Member companies.
Currently under development, the Egina deep offshore project consists of a subsea production system tied in to a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel with a processing capacity of 200,000 barrels per day and a storage capacity of 2.3 million barrels.
The Upper Zakum development project aims to increase oil production rates at the Abu Dhabi-based field from 550,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 750,000 bpd by 2015, sustainable for 25 years.
Kitimat LNG has the potential to be the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) project of its size in Canada to deliver LNG to Asia Pacific markets. Natural gas will be delivered to Kitimat LNG, located at Bish Cove near Kitimat in British Columbia (BC), from Summit Lake in BC by the proposed 480km Pacific Trail Pipeline.
The AU$29bn Wheatstone Project is one of Australia’s largest resource developments. It will include an onshore facility located at Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area, 12km west of Onslow on the Pilbara coast of Western Australia.
Project partners are developing this field, which is estimated by the Iraqi Government to hold about 38 billion barrels of oil. The ambitious aim is to raise production from around 60,000 barrels of oil a day in 2010 to 1.8 million barrels of oil equivalent per day by 2014.
The Gorgon Project is one of the world’s largest natural gas projects and the biggest resource development in Australia’s history. The project, which is being constructed on Barrow Island, off the northwest coast of Western Australia, will include a multi train, 15.6 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) liquified natural gas (LNG) facility and a domestic gas plant with the capacity to provide 300 terajoules of gas per day.
