Canada’s SNC-Lavalin has won a contract to provide engineering and consultancy services to a unit of Dutch storage tank firm Vopak in support of its LNG growth strategy.
The framework deal with Vopak LNG covers global onshore facilities, marine structures but also offshore floating technologies, according to SNC-Lavalin.
Moreover, the Canadian firm will deliver a range of services including concept and feasibility studies, engineering for permitting, and environmental assessments.
These also include front-end engineering design, and owner’s services through execution, commissioning and start-up, it said.
SNC-Lavalin said work would be led by its global teams and draw expertise from across the group in engineering disciplines, cost estimating and execution planning, ports and harbours, and permitting and consenting.
The contract builds on previous work with Vopak’s LNG team in Southeast Asia, it said.
Vopak co-owns four LNG import terminals around the globe, namely Gate, Altamira, Engro Elengy terminal, and SPEC.
In addition, the firm recently revealed plans to build an LNG import facility in Australia’s Victoria state.
