Air Products secures Rio Grande LNG gig

US LNG equipment specialist Air Products has won a contract from compatriot Bechtel to provide equipment for NextDecade’s Rio Grande LNG export project in Texas.

NextDecade recently took a final investment decision on the first three trains of its Rio Grande LNG export project in Texas and completed $18.4 billion project financing.

It awarded the $12 billion EPC contract to Bechtel.

Air Products said in a statement on Wednesday it has signed agreements with Bechtel to supply its proprietary LNG process technology and equipment to the first phase of the Rio Grande LNG project in the port of Brownsville.

The firm did not provide the price tag of the deal.

The project will include three natural gas liquefaction trains employing Air Products’ liquefaction equipment with a production capability of about 17.6 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG.

This includes coil-wound heat exchangers (CWHEs) and AP-C3MR LNG process technology.

Air Products said it will manufacture the CWHEs at its LNG equipment manufacturing facility in Port Manatee, Florida.

The US firm recently announced it will be making a “significant” investment to meet industry demand with increased winding capacity at its LNG equipment manufacturing facility.

Prior to this deal, Air Products won a contract to provide equipment for QatarEnergy’s North Field South (NFS) LNG project.
