Foster Wheeler to provide pre-FEED for LNG plant

Engineering and construction contractor Foster Wheeler has announced that its Global Engineering and Construction group has been awarded a contract by French energy company GDF Suez to carry out the pre-front-end engineering design (pre-FEED) for the development of an onshore LNG plant and offshore gas-gathering infrastructure.

The project seeks to establish a national gas-transportation network linking Cameroon’s offshore gas resources with the state-sanctioned onshore site near Kribi on the southern coastline of Cameroon.

In carrying out the pre-FEED for the entire mid-stream project, Foster Wheeler will develop the preliminary design basis for the liquefaction facility, gas-gathering and treatment facilities, and LNG export facilities, and will prepare capital cost estimates and other documentation.

The pre-FEED is scheduled to be completed in early 2011.
