Nigeria LNG (NLNG) Limited has awarded contracts to two consortia for front-end engineering design (FEED) work for its long-awaited Train 7 expansion project. A signing ceremony took place in London on 11 July for the project, which aims to increase liquefied natural gas output to 30m t/yr from 22m t/yr now. A completed FEED process will pave the way for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) pricing and bidding processes, which are required before a final investment decision (FID).
