US LNG operator Dominion Energy has selected compatriot HDR to continue as the owner’s engineer for its new LNG facility in Magna, Utah.
The selection establishes HDR as the owner’s engineer throughout construction of the facility. With this deal, HDR continues its role on the project held for the past four years.
The Magna facility will provide Dominion Energy Utah customers with a “reliable flow of gas” to homes and businesses.
Furthermore, the facility will liquefy gas at a rate of 8.2 MMscfd (100,000 gallons per day) and store it in a 15-million-gallon storage tank.
When needed, the facility will also be able to vaporize LNG at a rate of 150 MMscfd.
LNG storage at the facility will enable Dominion to “improve supply reliability and save its customers’ costs,” HDR said.
Dominion plans to begin construction in 2020 and complete the Magna LNG facility by 2022.
