Foster Wheeler Ltd. has recently announced that its Madrid-based subsidiary Foster Wheeler Iberia S.A.U. has been awarded a contract by Canadian company SNC-Lavalin Services Limited for part of the front-end engineering design (FEED) of a new LNG re-gasification terminal in Swinoujscie, Poland.

The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed, though the project was included in the company’s first-quarter 2008 bookings.

“We are delighted to have been selected by SNC-Lavalin to be a participant in the FEED for this gas-related project that Foster Wheeler has won in Poland. This latest LNG award further confirms Foster Wheeler Iberia’s position as one of the leading engineering companies in the LNG field,” said Jesús Cadenas, CEO of Foster Wheeler Iberia S.A.U.

“Our company is also currently involved in two LNG terminal projects in Spain for Enagas, and we are proud of having participated in most of the LNG terminals already in operation in Spain.”

The initial regasification capacity of the Polish LNG terminal will be 5.0 billion normal cubic meters per year of natural gas and the facility is anticipated to include two LNG tanks, each of 160,000 cubic meters capacity. The FEED is expected to be completed in the last quarter of 2008.

SNC-Lavalin is the main contractor for the FEED of the new re-gasification terminal.
