Umberto della Sala, President and Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler

Foster Wheeler AG said today that a subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded the basic design and front-end engineering design contract by Complejo GNL del Este, a Consortium formed by Dominican and Colombian companies that participate in the energy sector of these countries, for a new LNG receiving terminal and jetty to be built in San Pedro de Macorís in the Dominican Republic.

The Foster Wheeler contract value for this project was not disclosed and will be included in the company’s first-quarter 2012 results.

Foster Wheeler has previously completed a feasibility study for the selection of the most suitable technology for the new terminal, which will be designed for a send-out capacity of 240 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d), with an LNG storage tank of 160,000 cubic meters. The design will also consider future expansion(s) up to 700 MMscf/d. Foster Wheeler will work with a local partner in executing this work, which is expected to be completed in September 2012.

We are pleased to receive this award, which demonstrates our client’s satisfaction with the feasibility study we have completed and Complejo GNL del Este’s confidence in our LNG expertise and ability to deliver fast-track execution strategies,” said Umberto della Sala, President and Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler.Latin America is a strategically important region for Foster Wheeler, and is a region where we already have a very strong track record in winning and successfully executing large, complex projects.”

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
