  • Storage capacity:
    • Each storage tank is anticipated to store up to approximately 188,000 m3 LNG, which represents approximately 75,000 to 95,000 tonnes of LNG.
    • While it is expected that up to three tanks will be required for four LNG trains
  • Constructor:
    • KBR will execute engineering design services including pipeline design, process, civil and structural, mechanical and electrical engineering and instrument controls for the three CSG pipelines
