Plans for a four million tonnes per annum (mtpa) LNG export facility, located in Brownsville, Texas, have today (25th May) progressed, with Technip Energies and Samsung Engineering having secured a Pre-FID (final investment decision) engineering contract to support operations.

Under contract terms, Technip Energies has been appointed as lead project contractor charged with project design and delivery and will support the installation of its SnapLNG™ solution at the site.

Developed in collaboration with industrial gas giant Air Products, SnapLNG™ combines a compact modular design concept for mid-scale LNG trains with standardised components and technology.

Once installed, the solution offers lower emissions and is particularly suited for low-to-zero carbon footprint LNG and phased developments, such as the above, located on the Port of Brownsville’s deep water ship channel.

Loic Chapuis, Senior Vice-President of Gas and Low-Carbon Energies at Technip Energies, said, “We are pleased to have been selected by Texas LNG to lead the front-end engineering design (FEED) and project delivery and to integrate our modular SnapLNG™ solution, which is well-suited for the North America market.”

“LNG is more critical than ever in the current global energy context, and we are committed to bring our long-standing leadership in LNG to address today’s and tomorrow’s challenges. Our SnapLNG™ solution illustrates how Technip Energies can address these challenges by bringing to market a low-carbon, modularised and methane-free solution with a compressed time.”
