Oilfield Technology,

CBI announced today that the company has been selected by Yamal LNG LLC to provide front end engineering & design (FEED) services for the Yamal LNG project. The work is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2012.

"We are pleased to be selected for this significant project following our successful completion of the concept development earlier this year,” said Philip K. Asherman, President and CEO. “We appreciate the trust and confidence shown by Yamal LNG LLC and look forward to continuing our relationship with them on this next phase of the project."

The Yamal LNG project consists of the production, treatment, transportation, liquefaction and shipping of natural gas and natural gas liquids from the South Tambey field on the Yamal Peninsula in Northern Siberia, Russia. Natural gas reserves in the South Tambey field are estimated at more than one trillion m3.

CB&I’s project scope includes FEED development for the 16.5 million tpa LNG liquefaction plant, including LNG storage and loading facilities. CB&I’s FEED execution plan is based on engaging its international partners - Chiyoda and Saipem, as well as collaboration with Russian Design Institute - NIPIgazpererabotka, to address local design and authority approval requirements.

The FEED will provide a firm basis for the detailed engineering, procurement and construction phase, as well as project schedule and cost estimates to enable Yamal LNG to secure the final investment decision. The value of the contract was not disclosed though.
