Technip Energies and joint venture partner Samsung Engineering have been awarded a significant contract for the Texas LNG export project in Brownsville, Texas.

The contract is a pre-final investment decision agreement for project design and delivery of the 4 million tonnes per annum LNG export facility, which Technip Energies said will utilise its SnapLNG solution, developed in collaboration with Air Products.

The system combines a compact modular design concept for mid-scale trains with standardized components and technology.

Technip Energies said it has been appointed lead project contractor charged with project design and delivery.

Loic Chapuis, senior vice president gas and Low-carbon energies at Technip Energies said: “We are pleased to have been selected by Texas LNG to lead the FEED (front-end engineering design) 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.”

Texas LNG is understood to have access to onshore feed gas, and existing pipeline infrastructure.

The project has full authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Department of Energy and will export to global LNG markets, added Technip Energies.
