Black & Veatch, headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas, has been selected to deliver critical elements of India’s first FSRU-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal. 

The project, awarded by Swan LNG, a unit of Swan Energy, aims to develop the Indian gas market, which is projected to be one of the fastest growing in the world during the next two decades.

Black & Veatch on Tuesday said it will deliver the jetty topside and onshore LNG facilities for the 5 million metric tonnes per annum (mmtpa) plant at Jafrabad in Gujarat, under the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.

The new FSRU will be moored to a fixed jetty and regasify imported LNG to enable distribution by pipeline and road tanker. The facility is expected to go on-stream by early-2020.

Rajiv Menon, managing director, Black & Veatch India said, “The Indian government aims to significantly increase LNG import capacity by 2022. This project is a major step in this direction.”

The company did not reveal the value of the contract.
