Black & Veatch Leads EPC Project to Bring Fuel to India

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/9/2015, Location: Asia

A Black & Veatch led consortium, with KSS Petron India, has won the contract for a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminal at Ennore, in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The contract was awarded by Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), India’s national oil company.

Black & Veatch will lead the engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and commissioning work on a turnkey basis, and the plant is scheduled to be completed by 2018. “The Ennore LNG project is vital for gas supply and furthers our established brand as a proven tier-one global EPC provider,” said G. Sathiamoorthy, Managing Director of Black & Veatch India.

IOCL’s Ennore terminal will be the first-of-its-kind on India’s east coast. With a send-out capacity of five million tonnes the regasification terminal paves the way for supply of LNG to high gas demand southern states, particularly Tamil Nadu and some parts of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. As a result the project is expected to aid further industrial growth in the region.

“We are immensely happy to be delivering this world-class LNG project for IOCL, and look forward to working closely with them and other clients in the region in the future. The win reinforces our position as a partner of choice for critical infrastructure projects in energy, water and telecom,” added Sathiamoorthy.
