Kuala Lumpur: Japan’s JGC Corp has won a construction contract worth nearly $2bn at a liquefied natural gas project in Malaysia.
Petronas LNG 9, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petronas, awarded the contract to JGC for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) work on an additional train and related facilities at the Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu.
Train 9 will have a capacity of about 3.6m tons of LNG per year and its feedstock will be supplied from Petronas' newly developed offshore gas fields, off the coast of Sarawak, Malaysia, JGC said.
Work is scheduled for completion at the end of 2015. [15/03/13]
