The Fujairah LNG export terminal capacity will increase by 9.6 MTPA

In response to the growing global demand for natural gas, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) is increasing its liquefied natural gas (LNG) production capacity by 9.6 million tonnes per annum (MTPA).

Last month, it awarded a front-end engineering and design contract to leading engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) company McDermott International for a new, carbon-efficient LNG plant in the northern emirate of Fujairah.

The Fujairah LNG export terminal will include two trains, each with a 4.8 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG capacity.

The facility will also likely feature LNG storage tanks, an export jetty with an option for bunkering, and other associated facilities.

The Fujairah plant is currently in design stage and is likely to see an EPC contract awarded in 2023.

On completion, the plant will become one of the world’s lowest carbon intensity LNG production facilities through incorporating new technologies and running on clean power.
