Amec Foster Wheeler announced today that it has been awarded an Owner’s Engineer contract by GNL Quintero to provide engineering services at its Quintero regasification terminal in Chile.
Amec Foster Wheeler will participate in the Engineering, Procurement and Construction bid evaluation, as well as providing engineering services. The expansion involves the construction of a third storage tank and additional equipment to increase the regasification capacity.
I am delighted that Amec Foster Wheeler will continue to work with GNL Quintero. As part of a contract we will use our wide-ranging technical expertise and capabilities to deliver this LNG project.
Amec Foster Wheeler was appointed the Owner’s Engineer during the first expansion of the plant and LNG truck-loading facility, and we’re looking forward to continuing our close partnership with GNL Quintero to maximise the value of its Chilean assets.
Capacity for regasification of imported LNG at Quintero’s terminal was initially expanded from 10 million cubic metres per day (MMm3/d) to 15 MMm3/d in 2015. This latest expansion will increase the terminal’s capacity to 20 MMm3/d.
