Chinese Firm to Build US Mobile LNG Plants
China’s Wison Group has won a turnkey engineering, construction and procurement contract from EDF Trading and Exmar to build barge-mounted liquefaction plants.
The project is part of a program to bring mobile, self-contained liquefaction units to LNG import terminals in the U.S. The mobile plants would use existing pipeline, tanks and jetties to enable gas exports.
“Barge-mounted liquefaction is a cost-effective and efficient method of producing LNG,” John Rittenhouse, chief executive of EDF Trading, said in a statement. EDF Trading is the fifth largest marketer of gas in North America. Exmar specializes in LNG transportation.
Shanghai-based Wison Group is the largest private EPC contractor and specializes in the design and construction of petrochemical and coal gasification facilities. Last month, Wison Engineering won a contract to build China’s first floating oil storage facility.
