Micoperi, part of the Protan group of companies, has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the Tema LNG import terminal in Ghana. 

Under the contract, awarded by Quantum Power Ghana Gas, Micoperi will build the full off- and onshore project infrastructure, which will connect the floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) utilized by the project to the onshore gas distribution network, the Italian company said in its statement.

The infrastructure construction for the project is planned to start early 2017 and to be ready in 12 months following commencement of the construction work.

Earlier this year, the Tema LNG project executed an offtake agreement with Ghana’s national oil and gas company and national gas aggregator, Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) as well as a time charter party agreement with Höegh LNG of Norway.

According to the FSRU charter contract, Höegh LNG will provide the floating storage and regasification unit from its portfolio of FSRUs, including units under construction, the planned conversion FSRU or planned newbuilding orders.

The contract is for a period of 20 years with a five year extension option for the charterer.
