UTM Offshore Ltd. has awarded KBR Inc. an owner’s engineers contract to support development of Nigeria’s first floating LNG (FLNG) plant. Among KBR’s responsibilities will be a due diligence review of pre-front end engineering design (FEED) being completed by Japanese engineering company JGC Corp.

UTM is leading development of the 1.2 million tonne/year (tpy) FLNG plant in collaboration with LNG Investment Management Services, a subsidiary of Nigeria National Petroleum Corp. (NNPC). JGC won the pre-FEED contract last week.

Natural gas for the plant will be sourced from offshore Yoho field, owned by ExxonMobil and NNPC.

Yoho began production as an oil field in 2003, with estimated reserves of 400 million bbl. Production peaked at 100,000-150,000 b/d but has since been reduced to a fraction of that level. NNPC now seeks to monetize the remaining gas in place via the planned FLNG.
