Baltic LNG contract
Gazprom has awarded an engineering, procurement and construction contract for the construction of a Baltic Coast liquefied natural gas plant with 13 million tonnes per annum of output within the Gas Processing Complex (GPC) at Ust-Luga, west of St. Petersburg. A consortium comprising Germany’s Linde and Turkish company Renaissance Heavy Industries will build the plant and handle the installation of two LNG production Trains. “A technology patented in Russia will be used to produce this LNG,” said Gazprom. “The patent holders for the technology are Gazprom and Linde,” it added.
The government of Bangladesh has short-listed eight global companies, including US and European majors as well as various Japanese companies, to develop the nation’s first onshore liquefied natural gas import terminal. The Bangladesh Energy and Mineral Resources Division of the government said it would make the final decision soon on the group chosen to build the facility near the coastal town of Cox’s Bazar on the Bay of Bengal.
BP carbon-offset delivery
BP Singapore said it delivered the UK major’s first carbon-offset liquefied natural gas cargo to CPC Corp. of Taiwan at its Yung An import terminal. “This is BP’s first delivery of carbon-offset LNG in the Asia-Pacific region, following its first delivery globally to Sempra LNG at the Energia Costa Azul terminal in Mexico in July 2021,” said BP. “This new carbon-offset LNG offer strengthens BP’s natural gas offering in the region,” it added.
