Technip Energies and Samsung Engineering Awarded Pre-FID Contract, Form Joint Venture for Project Design and Delivery for Texas LNG in the USA

May 25, 2022

Technip Energies and Samsung Engineering have been awarded a Pre-FID (Final Investment Decision) Engineering contract for the Texas LNG project in Brownsville, Texas, USA. Through a joint venture with Samsung Engineering, Technip Energies has been appointed lead project contractor charged with project design and delivery. The proposed 4.0 Mtpa(1) LNG export facility site is strategically located on the Port of Brownsville’s deep-water ship channel in close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico.

The Texas LNG project will utilize Technip Energies’ SnapLNG™ solution, which combines a compact modular design concept for mid-scale trains with standardized components and technology. Developed in collaboration with Air Products, the system benefits from speed to market, with greater certainty around both costs and schedule, and best available process technology, refrigerant compression and digitalization. As a result, this solution offers lower emissions and is particularly suited for low-to-zero carbon footprint LNG and phased developments.

Loic Chapuis, SVP Gas and Low-Carbon Energies, Technip Energies, stated, “We are pleased to have been selected by Texas LNG to lead the FEED (front-end engineering design) and project delivery and to integrate our modular SnapLNG solution, which is well-suited for the North America market. LNG is more critical than ever in the current global energy context and we are committed to bring our long-standing leadership in LNG to address today’s and tomorrow’s challenges. Our SnapLNG™ solution illustrates how Technip Energies can address these challenges by bringing to market a low-carbon, modularized and methane-free solution with a compressed time.”

Texas LNG, a Glenfarne Group Company, has full authorization from FERC and the Department of Energy and will export to global LNG markets.
