UK-based Wood said it would perform owner’s engineering services for Sempra’s Cameron LNG expansion project in Louisiana.
Cameron LNG, operator of the existing three-train 12 mtpa liquefaction facility, awarded the contract to Wood.
Sempra Infrastructure, a unit of Sempra, has a 50.2 percent stake in Cameron LNG while the other partners include Mitsui & Co., Mitsubishi Corporation, TotalEnergies, and NYK Line.
Wood said in a statement the contract would cover activities relating to the development of a fourth LNG train, with a planned production capacity of approximately 6.75 million metric tons per annum.
It also includes improved production from the first three trains.
Wood did not provide the price tag of the contract.
Sempra said last month that it expects to take a final investment decision to expand the Cameron LNG plant in 2023.
In April, the company’s unit Sempra Infrastructure entered into a heads of agreement with its partners in Cameron LNG.
Additionally, Cameron LNG awarded two front-end engineering design (FEED) contracts to Bechtel and a joint venture between JGC America and Zachry Industrial.
Sempra expects the FEED process to conclude in the summer of 2023, resulting in better scope, definition, cost and schedule for the project.
