U.S.-based Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation said it has secured a contract with Corpus Christi Liquefaction, a unit of LNG player Cheniere Energy.
CCL is developing a liquefied natural gas export terminal at a site located on the north shore of Corpus Christi Bay in San Patricio and Nueces Counties, Texas.
Great Lakes’ portion of the LNG project involves the dredging and slope protection of two LNG carrier ship berths, dredging of a material offloading and tug mooring basin, and expansion of an existing La Quinta Channel turning basin, the company said on Monday.
The total quantity to be dredged is approximately 4.3 million cubic yards, and the materials will be placed into an adjacent upland beneficial use site.
Great Lakes expects to commence this work in the fourth quarter of 2015.
