Japan’s Osaka Gas nets Taichung LNG expansion job

Daigas Gas and Power Solution, a unit of Japan’s Osaka Gas, has secured a contract to work on the expansion of CPC’s Taichung LNG import terminal in Taiwan.

State-owned CPC awarded front-end engineering and design (FEED) and technical consulting service for the Phase-4 expansion project of the LNG receiving facility, according to a statement by Osaka Gas on Wednesday.

The expansion project includes building four LNG storage tanks each with 180,000 kl storage capacity, regasification facilities and a jetty for LNG tankers.

After the completion of this project scheduled in 2029, LNG handling capacity of the Taichung LNG receiving terminal would increase to 13 million tons per year, Osaka Gas said.

Osaka Gas’ unit DGPS previously worked with CPC on its Yung-An facility in Kaohsiung and is involved in ongoing technical consulting service for the construction of CPC’s third LNG receiving terminal in Guantang, Taoyuan City.

The firm did not disclose any further information regarding the contract.

This announcement follows a deal for a consortium led by Japan’s JGC.

JGC said in a statement on Wednesday that the consortium includes Taiwanese construction firm RSEA Engineering Corporation, Taiwan’s Do & Find Engineering Consultants and another company.

This project calls for EPCC services for CPC, which would involve construction of eight LNG vaporizers with a total capacity of 1,600 tons per hour and associated facilities in Taichung, JGC said.
