In June 07 the British Gas Group agreed to supply Chile’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal in Quintero Bay. The $775 million engineering, procurement and construction contract was consequently awarded to CB&I. The 2.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) terminal in Quintero Bay – approximately 110 kilometres northwest of Santiago – will have the capacity to meet up to 40 percent of the country’s demand for natural gas.
The Global Alliance between R&M and Wholesale Electric of Houston, USA was utilised for the supply of this project. R&M’s project division was awarded contracts for both IEC and UL rated products, meaning the project could procure materials under both specifications from a single source.
Project Date: 2007
