Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC)

Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG) awarded the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Contracts for its Train 7 Project to SCD JV Consortium, comprising affiliates of Saipem, Chiyoda and Daewoo on 13th May 2020.

The execution of the EPC Contracts triggered the commencement of the Detail Design and Construction phase of the Project, expected to increase the capacity of NLNG's current six-Train plant by 35% from the extant 22 Million Tonnes Per Annum (mtpa) to 30mtpa.

The search for an EPC contractor for Train 7 began in July 2018 with the signing of Front End Engineering Design (FEED) with two consortia in a Dual FEED Process.

The consortia, B7 JV Consortium and SCD JV Consortium, participated in the Dual FEED Process which led to their bidding to construct the train.

In September 2019, NLNG took a significant step towards the FID with the issuance of a Letter of Intent for the EPC Contracts of the Project to SCD JV Consortium. 

The Letter of Intent expresses the intention of the company to award the EPC Contract for the Train 7 Project, subject to signing of the terms, to the preferred bidder after a contracting process that has been transparent, and in full compliance with all applicable laws and good industry practices.

NLNG took the Final Investment Decision (FID) on 27th December 2019, which was followed by the approval of the Nigerian Content Compliance Certificate (NCCC) and Approved Vendors Lists (AVLs) by Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) in April 2020.
