The contract was awarded by India’s national oil company, Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) for an undisclosed sum.

The scope of work includes basic design, front-end engineering design, and the preparation of capital and operating cost estimates for the new LNG import, storage and re-gasification terminal.

The terminal will be designed to process five million tonnes per annum of LNG.

Foster Wheeler will also be responsible for marine studies to enable IOCL to finalize the jetty location, utilities, and re-gasified LNG send-out facilities.

The terminal facilities are planned for completion by 2015-16.
