Sempra LNG & Midstream, a unit of US-based Sempra Energy, said Friday it has selected Bechtel as the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPC) contractor for the Port Arthur liquefaction project under development in Texas.

Bechtel will perform the engineering, execution planning and related activities necessary to prepare, negotiate and finalize a lump-sum EPC contract for the project in accordance with the planned development schedule, according to a Sempra statement.

The proposed Port Arthur liquefaction project is expected to include two natural gas liquefaction trains to enable the long-term sale of approximately 11 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG.

The project also includes feed gas pre-treatment facilities, natural gas liquids and refrigerant storage, up to three LNG storage tanks, two marine berths and associated facilities.

Sempra said that the development of the Port Arthur liquefaction project is contingent upon obtaining customer commitments, completing the required commercial agreements (including a definitive EPC contract), securing all necessary permits and approvals, obtaining financing and incentives, reaching a final investment decision and other factors associated with the investment.

Sempra is developing the LNG export project with Australian player Woodside. The two companies also signed a memorandum of understanding with South Korea’s Kogas regarding the development of the proposed project in Texas.
