The scope of work awarded includes the fabrication of three Pre-Assembled Unit Complex Process Modules. QMW will undertake fabrication engineering, partial procurement, construction and pre-commissioning scope. Fabrication for the modules is scheduled to commence at the end of 2019 and be completed in mid-2022.

Commenting on the contract award, Ian Prescott, McDermott’s Senior Vice President Asia Pacific, said:

“This award recognises QMW’s experience and excellent performance in the Arctic on an earlier Yamal LNG project. It is further evidence that QMW is a tier one module fabricator in the LNG market. Fabrication will be completed in QMW’s mega module workshop which provides increased certainty for safety, schedule and successful project delivery.”

The Arctic LNG 2 project is a recently approved major LNG development located on the Gydan peninsula, Russia. On completion the project is expected to have a production capacity of 19.8 million tons per year (Mt/y) and is expected to export its first LNG cargo by 2023, with the second and third train to start up by 2024 and 2026 respectively. 

Arctic LNG 2 is being developed by Novatek (60%), CNOOC (10%), CNPC (10%), Total (10%) and a Mitsui-Jogmec consortium, Japan Arctic LNG (10%).
