Fluor, a provider of maintenance services to the oil and gas industry, has won a contract for the detailed engineering, procurement services and construction management from Enagas for the new El Musel liquefied natural gas terminal along Spain's north coast.
The new facility will be located at the El Musel Commercial Port near the city of Gijon in the province of Asturias. The terminal will include two 150,000 cubic meter liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanks along with a regasification send-out capacity of 800,000 normal cubic meters per hour.
Additionally, the LNG terminal will provide natural gas to combined-cycle power plants and will help diversify the fuel sources of electricity generation in the region. Fluor will be responsible for contracts and materials on the project that are worth approximately $320 million.
David Seaton, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group, said: The new Enagas LNG facility is the seventh new terminal in Spain in recent years and it will help achieve the country’s goal of having gas reserves of at least 35 days of gas consumption. Fluor is honored that we have been chosen to participate in this important project.
