ATLANTIC Gulf & Pacific Company (AG&P) has been awarded a major contract to build process modules for the Yamal liquefied natural gas project.

Located in Sabetta, Russia, north-east of the Yamal Peninsula, the Yamal LNG project is the first LNG development venture in the Arctic.

Following a competitive tender process, Yamgaz, the consortium designing and constructing the LNG plant, selected the Philippines-based fabricator for its high capacity, advanced modular construction capabilities, stringent safety and quality standards and previous track record of successful project delivery.

AG&P will deliver some of the largest LNG modules ever built, accelerating project construction and minimising the time to commercial operation.

“It is a privilege for AG&P to support the grand vision of Yamal LNG,” AG&P managing director Augusto Gan said.

“A significant milestone in the history of our company, AG&P looks forward to building these complex and exciting modules to the highest levels of safety and quality in our state of-the-art yards outside of Manila.”

AG&P expects the contract win will result in the creation of thousands of jobs to service the Yamal LNG project. The value of the contract was not disclosed.

This contract announcement follows other recent contract successes, including the deployment of the Hydro Deck in Darwin to service the Inpex-operated Ichthys project in Australia’s Northern Territory.
