Foster Wheeler’s subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded the basic design and front-end engineering design (FEED) contract by Complejo GNL del Este for a new LNG receiving terminal and jetty to be built in San Pedro de Marcoris in the Dominican Republic.
Foster Wheeler previously completed a feasibility study for the selection of the most suitable technology for the new terminal, which will be designed for a sendout capacity of 240 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d) and will include an LNG storage tank of 160,000 cubic meters.
The design will also consider future expansions up to 700 MMscf/d. Foster Wheeler will work with a local partner in executing this work, which is expected to be completed in September 2012.
Complejo GNL del Este is a consortium of Dominican and Colombian companies that participate in the energy sector of those countries.
This will be the second LNG terminal built in the Dominican Republic. AES Andres constructed the first terminal in the island nation and imported its initial cargo in February 2003.
