Russian independent natural gas producer, Novatek is developing the giant Yamal LNG project on the Yamal Peninsula.
In 2014, the project’s engineering, procurement and module fabrication, as well as site construction job was awarded to Technip in a joint venture with JGC and Chiyoda named Yamgaz.
Now operating as TechnipFMC, following the completion of its merger with Houston-based FMC Technologies, the company has been delivering the modules that will make up the three liquefaction trains at the facility with a total combined capacity of 16.5 million tons of LNG per year.
In a recent social media post, TechnipFMC showed 32 modules for the project’s second liquefaction train being delivered to the construction site.
The $27 billion Yamal LNG project is expected to ship its first cargo before October this year, with almost all of the volumes already contracted.
Shareholders in the Yamal LNG project are Novatek, as the operator with a 50.1 percent stake, CNPC and Total with 20 percent stake each and China’s Silk Road Fund with a 9.9 percent stake.
