Technip Energies bags Adriatic LNG gig

Paris-based LNG engineering giant Technip Energies has secured a new contract from Italy’s Adriatic LNG, the operator of the offshore gravity-based LNG import terminal in the Adriatic Sea.

Technip Energies said in a social media post on Monday it has secured the contract for the overhaul of the terminal’s last two offshore LNG loading arms.

According to the firm, Adriatic LNG has been the world first offshore LNG regassification terminal using its loading arms equipped with the targeting system, designed to maximize the availability of the loading arms regardless of the metocean conditions.

Adriatic LNG launched an overhaul program of the LNG loading arms in 2019.

Technip Energies proposed a plug and play solution, while sequencing the refurbishment of the loading arms, to allow minimizing drastically the downtime of the LNG terminal, it said.

The firm did not provide the price tag of the new contract.

ExxonMobil has a 70.7 percent stake in Adriatic LNG, while QatarEnergy holds 22 percent and Snam owns 7.3 percent.
