Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)

CB&I has served the liquefied natural gas industry for more than 50 years. We’ve designed and built nearly every type of LNG project, operating on a global basis. We offer a comprehensive range of technology and engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction services for the LNG industry, with a focus on: 

  • Natural gas liquefaction plants
  • LNG regasification terminals
  • LNG peak shaving facilities
  • LNG storage tanks

Within these focus areas, CB&I can provide a full range of services, including conceptual design, detailed engineering, material procurement, fabrication, construction, project management, compliance support, commissioning and startup, and operator training. 

Innovations for a specialized market

CB&I is one of the most experienced engineering and construction firms serving the LNG market. We built the first LNG regasification import terminal in the United States, and over the years we have developed a number of processes and technologies that benefit our customers. These include new methods for liquefaction, tank insulation, BTU reduction, inlet air cooling and other proprietary processes. 

In addition, CB&I has extensive experience with the key processes and equipment that are utilized in baseload liquefaction plants, including receiving and gas metering, acid gas removal, dehydration, mercury removal, refrigeration, LNG storage and loading, and offsites and utilities. We had complete design-build responsibility for the PERU LNG export facility, the first baseload liquefaction plant in South America, which was completed in 2010. 

CB&I is currently building two LNG liquefaction plants on the United States Gulf Coast—the Cameron LNG facility in Hackberry, Louisiana, and the Freeport LNG facility in Freeport, Texas.
