ZUG, Switzerland -- Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction Group is to perform pre-FEED for a new gas development offshore Cameroon.

The project, operated by GDF Suez, aims to establish a national gas transport network connecting Cameroon’s offshore gas reserves to an onshore LNG plant near Kribi on the southern coast.

Foster Wheeler is working with GDF SUEZ and its state-owned partner, Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures (SNH).

The Cameroon LNG project involves constructing a single-train plant capable of producing up to 3.5 million tons/yr of LNG. It also includes an upstream gas gathering system and subsea pipeline tie-ins to offshore production facilities.

Foster Wheeler will develop the preliminary design for the liquefaction facility, gas-gathering, and treatment and LNG export facilities, along with capital cost estimates and other documentation. It is due to complete this program early in 2011.
