Samsung Engineering and China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering are the other two members of the consortium.

The project includes two six-million tons per year LNG trains, process units and marine facilities, inlet facilities, utilities and power generation, and off-sites including buildings and jetty topside facilities.

Technip will be responsible for the construction of the LNG trains, the process units and the marine facilities.

Technip Region B senior vice president Marco Villa said, "This award confirms our strong position in the liquefaction of natural gas, bringing extensive knowledge and conceptual design capabilities to our client’s project. It is also in line with our strategy to get involved at early stages of projects."

Technip’s operating center in Italy will perform the contract work along with the consortium members in Korea and China.

The project is scheduled for completion in the second semester of 2014.
