Yamal LNG has selected Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI) to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for the Yamal LNG project in Russia.
The Yamal LNG project involves the production, treatment, transportation, liquefaction and shipping of natural gas and natural gas liquids from the South Tambey field on the Yamal Peninsula in Northern Siberia.
CBI's FEED services include development of the 16.5 million tonnes per year LNG liquefaction plant, along with LNG storage and loading facilities.
CBI will engage its international partners Chiyoda and Saipem and collaborate with Russian Design Institute NIPIgazpererabotka to address local design and authority approval requirements.
The FEED work will provide a base for the detailed engineering, procurement and construction stage, as well as cost estimates and a project schedule to allow Yamal LNG to secure further investment.
