Yamal LNG contract goes to Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan

Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan (QMW) has been awarded a module fabrication contract for Yamal LNG, a liquefied natural gas plant being built northeast of the Yamal Peninsula in Russia.

The large contract is being performed in the QMW fabrication facility in Qingdao, China and commenced in the second quarter of 2015, QMW, a joint venture between McDermott and state-owned CSIC, said in a statement.

The full scope of work includes fabrication, engineering, procurement, construction including mechanical completion, pre-commissioning, weighing, and load-out. The scope of work also includes the sea-fastening of six units of onshore LNG fractionation pre-assembled unit modules of approximately 13,200 tons. Two of the modules weigh in at approximately 4,630 tons each.

The Yamal LNG project envisages the construction of an LNG plant with annual capacity of 16.5 mtpa based on the feedstock resources of the South-Tambeyskoye field located in the north-east of the Yamal Peninsula, Russia.

Novatek is the operator of the giant LNG project with a 60% stake, while Total and CNPC hold 20% each. The launch of the first LNG train is planned for 2017.
