China Harbour bags Nigeria LNG contract

China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) said it has secured a contract related to the construction of Nigeria LNG’s seventh production unit at the Bonny Island plant.

The engineering, procurement and construction contract includes work on “the hydraulic structure of the wharf and approach bridge (pile foundation and concrete), a steel platform, and auxiliary facilities,” according to a CHEC statement issued last week.

CHEC, a unit of China Communications Construction Company, did not reveal the price tag or the duration of the contract.

Nigeria LNG awarded the $4 billion engineering, procurement and construction deal in May 2020 to a joint venture led by Italy’s Saipem, South Korea’s Daewoo E&C and Chiyoda of Japan.

The project includes one complete LNG train and one combined liquefaction unit, as well as other extensive associated utilities and infrastructure. It will add around 8 mtpa of production capacity to the Bonny Island facility, boosting the plant’s output by 35 percent.

US tech and equipment firm Air Products will provide the main cryogenic heat exchangers and the process technology for both liquefaction units.

The operator of the 22 mtpa Bonny Island plant held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the construction start on the seventh production unit in June last year.

Nigeria LNG is a venture compromising of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (49%), Shell (25.6%), TotalEnergies (15%), and Eni (10.4%).
