Saipem: Offloading of first LNG begins at Nong Fab Terminal

San Donato Milanese (Italy), June 24, 2022Saipem is pleased to inform that on 18 June the Nong Fab LNG Regassification Terminal, located in Mueang Rayong district in Thailand and executed in joint venture with its partner CTCI Corporation, began offloading the first liquefied natural gas from the LNG carrier, moored at the plant jetty.

The scope of work of the project, which kicked off on 1 July 18, 2018, includes the execution on an EPC basis of two 250,000m³ LNG storage tanks, a gassification facility of 7.5 million tons of LNG per year, a 6-kilometer trestle unloading facility, and an eco-friendly administrative building. Therefore, it is a particularly significant project which is stands out due to its tank capacity (the largest ever executed in Thailand) and the world’s largest trestle in the LNG sector.

The offloading of the first LNG was achieved thanks to the expertise, quality and efforts of Saipem’s execution team in Thailand as well as the strong support of the client PTT LNG.

Full commissioning and start-up are expected within 2022, thus providing the country with a stable and reliable energy supply, in response to the increasing power demand in Thailand.

This is a fundamental milestone for the project, which confirms Saipem’s role in the LNG and regassification sectors, thanks to its long-standing expertise in complex projects, which are always executed applying the highest safety standards.
