Global engineering company Worley has been awarded a master services agreement to provide civil, structural, mechanical, I&E, HVAC and marine construction services at Cheniere LNG’s Corpus Christi LNG facility.

Located in South Texas, the facility is the first greenfield LNG export facility in the US lower 48.

Trains 1 and 2 at the facility are currently operational, with Train 3 due to be completed next year. Once complete, with three liquefaction trains, the facility will have an expected capacity of up to 13.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG.

Worley has already supported Cheniere with the project and operations standards development to maintain and improve all Cheniere assets. Now, through the new agreement, Worley will provide a nested on-site team to execute small capital construction projects for the Corpus Christi facility.

Commenting on the agreement, Chris Ashton, CEO of Worley, said, “We are delighted that Cheniere has engaged Worley in this agreement. LNG is an important component of Worley’s Energy Transition strategy in the world’s energy transition journey.”

“As a global professional services company headquartered in Australia, we look forward to support Cheniere to deliver on its operational and production targets.”
