Bechtel to deliver 27.6 MTPA LNG projects

27 November 2017

Bechtel has signed four lump-sum turnkey agreements with Driftwood LNG LLC, a Tellurian company, to deliver one of the world’s lowest-cost liquefaction construction projects near Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Construction of the Driftwood LNG project is expected to begin in 2018 with the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced in 2022, subject to Tellurian making a final investment decision and a permit from the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The four agreements cover four phases of the construction process, as production plants are progressively brought online. At full capacity, the facility will produce up to 27.6 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG.
