Chiyoda Corp. (Yokohama, Japan; www.chiyoda-corp.com) and CB&I (www.chicagobridge.com) have announced the joint venture between Chiyoda International Corp., a U.S.-based wholly owned subsidiary of Chiyoda, and CB&I has been awarded a contract valued at approximately $6 billion by Cameron LNG, LLC (Cameron), to construct the Cameron Liquefaction Project in Hackberry, La.
The scope of work includes engineering, procurement and construction for the addition of natural-gas liquefaction and export facilities to the existing LNG regasification facility. The Cameron Liquefaction Project will be comprised of three liquefaction trains with a nameplate capacity of approximately 13.5 million metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of LNG. In February 2014, Cameron received conditional authorization from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to export domestically produced LNG to countries that do not have a free trade agreement with the U.S., including those in Europe and Asia.
