Arctic LNG-2 Fabrication Begins
Shanghai-based Wison Offshore & Marine began fabrication work at Russia’s Arctic LNG-2 project in late November, ahead of schedule, it said in a December 11 statement.
The French arm of TechnipFMC won an engineering, procurement and construction contract at the Novatek-operated Arctic LNG-2 in July. Under a subcontract, Wison is responsible for engineering, procurement, fabrication and commissioning of modules at its first train, weighing a total of 48,000 tonnes.
Wison said it had achieved the first cutting milestone ahead of schedule, potentially saving time and money at the project.
Arctic LNG-2 is expected to cost $21.3bn. It will feature three 6.6mn mt/yr export trains due on stream in 2023, 2024 and 2026.
