Tokyo Gas Unit Wins Thai Terminal Job
Tokyo Gas said January 9 that it has won a project management consultancy contract from Thailand’s PTT LNG for the construction of an import terminal there.
Its Tokyo Gas Engineering Solutions (TGES) unit has been awarded the project management contract relating of the 7.5mn mt/yr Nong Fab terminal, which will be Thailand's second LNG import terminal. The country's currently operating Map Ta Phut terminal is also owned by PTT LNG.
PTT, the state-owned parent of PTT LNG, plans to increase its LNG import capacity current 10mn mt/yr to 19mn mt/yr by 2023. With local gas supplies dwindling and only limited piped gas exports from Myanmar, Thailand's buoyant economy is increasingly relying in imported LNG to meet domestic gas demand. In recent years the southeast Asian nation has signed multiple LNG deals.
