Great Lakes clinches Port Arthur LNG dredging gig

US firm Great Lakes Dredge & Dock has secured a dredging contract from compatriot Bechtel for the first phase of Sempra’s Port Arthur LNG export project in Texas.

LNG player Sempra Infrastructure, a unit of Sempra, took a final investment decision on March 20 for the first phase of its Port Arthur LNG export project worth about $13 billion.

Bechtel won the EPC contract which includes building two trains with a total capacity of about 13 million tonnes per annum and two storage tanks with a capacity of 160,000 cbm.

Great Lakes said in statement on Wednesday it has won the Port Arthur LNG Phase 1 marine dredging and disposal contract.

The scope of work on this project is to dredge the Port Arthur LNG berthing pocket on the Port Arthur ship canal.

Great Lakes said the berthing pocket and turning basin will connect to the Port Arthur canal and allow LNG vessels to berth, load, and depart safely.

A significant portion of the dredged materials will be placed by Great Lakes within designated beneficial use of dredged material areas to restore and enhance marshlands within a local wildlife refuge, it said.

Great Lakes expects to start this project later this year.

The company’s backlog and recent pending awardable work now exceed $1 billion, the firm said but it did not provide the price tag of the newest contract.

Besides this project, Great Lakes also expects to start dredging work related to NextDecade’s Rio Grande LNG export project in Texas later this year.
