Mexico Pacific Limited is pursuing a mid-scale LNG export project in Mexico’s Sonora state.
Mexico Pacific Limited (MPL) has awarded KBR, Inc. a pre-front end engineering design (pre-FEED) contract for a midscale LNG liquefaction project in Puerto Libertad, Mexico, KBR reported Thursday.
“We are excited to be a part of this Mexico Pacific Limited LNG project and to deliver innovative LNG technology solutions for our customers,” Farhan Mujib, president of KBR’s Hydrocarbons Delivery Solutions unit, said in a written statement. “We believe midscale LNG projects have an important part to play in the global LNG market.”
According to KBR, it will provide pre-FEED and a cost estimate under the terms of the contract. The company added that it will incorporate ConocoPhillips Optimized Cascade technology. MPL noted that the contract award represents progress toward the 2 to 4-million ton per annum Pacific Coast LNG project’s commercialization. Also, the company anticipates that the FEED phase will begin in mid-2019.
Puerto Libertad is located along the Gulf of California in Mexico’s Sonora state. MPL’s website notes that the project site boasts a natural deepwater port as well as direct access to an existing IEnova natural gas pipeline linked to U.S. (Permian Basin and South Texas) and Mexico production. Moreover, MPL states that the facility would be able to serve demand centers in Asia and South America without the need for LNG carriers to transit the Panama Canal – unlike liquefaction terminals on the U.S. Gulf Coast.
“We look forward to working with an LNG industry leader in KBR, and continuing our efforts to provide a world class project with best in class delivered pricing for our Asian buyers,” stated MPL President Josh Loftus.
