JGC and Halliburton KBR have won a contract to provide the front-end engineering design (FEED) for an LNG terminal project for China National Ocean Oil Company (CNOOC).

The project was spearheaded by CNOOC and calls for construction of LNG terminals at Dapeng Port, Shenzhen City in Guangdong Province, China. The terminals will be the first of their kind in China, and will have an annual receiving capacity of 3 million tons. Construction completion with operation start-up is scheduled for the end of 2005.

LNG is to be supplied via pipelines to cities in Guangdong Province and Hong Kong for use in power generation and in urban gas lines servicing homes.

The basic design work that JGC or the venture is to undertake will be performed in two phases. During the first, conceptual phase, the LNG terminal design will be optimized within the context of the overall project. More precisely, a study of facility scales to meet LNG demands will be conducted. During the second, front-end engineering design phase, the basic design for the facilities will be drafted.

Domestic energy consumption, particularly electricity, is increasing due to rapid economic expansion in China. This project is being planned as part of the energy policy shift from coal to LNG for power generation. LNG is recognized as being more environmentally-friendly than coal.

JGC has completed approximately 50 LNG receiving tank project achievements in Japan.
