Kaefer scores Qatari LNG gig

A unit of Germany’s Kaefer has secured a contract to provide insulation services to QatarEnergy’s giant LNG expansion project.

Kaefer said in a statement that it won the contract from Consolidated Contractors Company for the North Field East project.

The firm said this is its biggest contract win in the Middle East, but it did not provide the price tag of the deal.

“This is one of the mega LNG projects in the world,” Sanjay Kumar, managing director of Kaefer in Qatar, said in the statement.

“The services we are providing are largely the same as those we have delivered on other similar projects around the world. However, the sheer scale of the project is what makes it special,” he said.

“At peak times we’ll have up to 1,500 Kaefer people working on the project, and we’ll have to bring more than 2,000 containers of materials to the site,” Kumar said.

State-owned LNG giant QatarEnergy recently awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction contract worth about $10 billion for the North Field South (NFS) project to a joint venture of Technip Energies and CCC.

Prior to that, Technip and Chiyoda won the EPC award for QatarEnergy’s North Field East project.

The first phase of the expansion project includes the construction of four mega trains and will increase Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 77 to 110 Mtpa, while the second phase includes the construction of two trains and will further boost capacity to total 126 Mtpa.
