AMEC Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract by Indian Oil LNG Private (IOLPL) for the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Ennore, Tamil Nadu, on the east coast of India.

Awarded in early June, the contract follows the successful completion of a front end engineering and design contract for the terminal in 2012.

The group’s responsibilities include the supervision of works related to engineering procurement and construction contracts for the LNG regasification and marine import facilities, as well as the LNG storage tanks.

Amec Foster Wheeler will also undertake project management consultancy activities for the entire project, from engineering development and construction phases, through to pre-commissioning, commissioning and start-up of the terminal.

This is a 42 month contract which will be delivered at the end of 2018.

Amec Foster Wheeler group president of Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa and southern Europe, Roberto Penno, said he was pleased with the contract award.

“Delivering this next phase of this project reinforces our position as a leading provider of LNG services to the Indian domestic market,” Mr Penno said.
