  • Export pipeline


Work Scope: 

Engineering, Procurement, Technical Support


The project was carried in two phases:


Phase 1

Front End Engineering Design and Detailed Design for the modular LNG Tanks and association insulation and process systems.

Start up of detailed design.


Phase 2

Whessoe’s scope included:


  • Detailed engineering
  • Partial procurement, including 9% Nickel steel, tank insulation and instrumentation
  • Fabrication of 9% Nickel modular LNG tanks and associated systems
  • Construction management of the inner tank installation
  • Technical support during initial cooldown of the tanks.


The two tanks were fabricated in a total of six sections by Whessoe’s subcontractor . Hyundai Heavy Industries, in South Korea. Upon completion they were transported in one shipment from South Korea to Algeciras in Southern Spain.
