Trunkline LNG Export LLChas awardedTechnipthe front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the potential expansion of an existing liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal in Lake Charles, LA, to make it an LNG export facility (seeDaily GPI,Aug. 8). The project includes an LNG liquefaction plant with export capacity of up to 15 million tonnes per annum. The capacity could be achieved through up to three identical trains, with associated utilities and offsite facilities, as well as the reuse of the existing LNG offloading, storage and marine facilities.Air Productshas been selected to supply its C3MR liquefaction process technology for the FEED study.
