Singapore LNG Corporation, which is building the country’s first LNG terminal, said in a project update published on its website that the overall project construction is almost 92% completed.
There has been steady progress on LNG Tanks 1 & 2 where hydrotesting has already started. All key civil works will be completed by the end of Jul, Singapore LNG said.
Equipment installation and piping erection is well advanced and cable pulling is ongoing. The sea water intake concrete structure is completed and removal of the coffer dam is underway to allow mechanical works to start, the company said.
Progress on the Third LNG Tank continues ahead of schedule and Secondary Berth piling works for both jetties and quay wall are progressing well.
The Singapore LNG Terminal project has exceeded 7.5 million man hours safely worked on the overall project without any lost time injury since the start of the project in February 2010, according to Singapore LNG.
SLNG is well placed to complete the LNG Terminal, ready for operational start up by second quarter of 2013, the company added.
