McDermott International said last week it was awarded a contract valued between $1 million and $50 million by Argentina-based YPF, S.A. to provide pre-front-end engineering design (pre-Feed) services for a five million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) LNG liquefaction facility.
The complex will be constructed at the Vaca Muerta Shale play in Argentina, Kallanish Energy reports.
The scope of work is a continuation of a previous conceptual study developed for the YPF LNG facility under a 2018 contract. “Our experience as the EPC (engineering, procurement, construction) contractor for the Peru LNG Facility in which YPF was involved – combined with McDermott’s modularization capabilities – were key factors that made us uniquely qualified to win and execute this contract,” said Mark Coscio, McDermott’s senior vice president for North, Central and South America.
McDermott’s London office will provide engineering services while the Houston office will perform project management and estimation services. Work on the project will begin immediately.
