Pointe LNG has signed an engineering and technical services agreement with KBR for its proposed LNG liquefaction and export facility in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.
The agreement with KBR is to provide Pointe LNG with front end engineering design submittals and services as required to obtain Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approval.
James Lindsay, Pointe’s co-founder, says: ‘We are pleased to have KBR, a global EPC LNG contractor, as a partner, and this strategic agreement is an important step in the development of our project. We are thrilled about the opportunity to add KBR’s decades of LNG experience on board as we bring Pointe LNG to market.’
Assuming that various contingencies and approvals are satisfied, construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021 with initial operations expected in the first quarter of 2025.
