Samsung, KBR to Build Texas LNG

Texas LNG Brownsville has selected Samsung Engineering and KBR for construction of its 4mn mt/yr LNG project at the Port of Brownsville in South Texas.

Samsung and KBR will provide Texas LNG with pre-final investment decision detailed engineering and post-final investment decision engineering, procurement and construction services, Texas LNG said March 2. Samsung, a minority equity owner and technical partner of Texas LNG, has already completed the conceptual study, pre-front end engineering design (Feed) and Feed for the LNG export project. Pre-FID detailed engineering is expected to begin this year.

In January, Texas LNG Brownsville signed detailed non-binding agreements with four LNG buyers in southeast Asia and China for a volume of 3.1mn tn/yr which can go up to 4mn mt/yr. It did not name the buyers, but said that they were a mix of state-owned and private entities that currently own, or plan to construct, LNG receiving facilities in the next few years.

FID for the development of the project is expected in 2018.
