Fluor Corp has been awarded a contract by Gate Terminal to design and build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) break-bulk terminal in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Fluor will provide engineering, procurement and construction management services for the jetty, loading facilities, boil-off gas compressors, connection to the LNG terminal and other facilities.

Taco de Haan, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for Fluor to deliver its engineering, procurement and construction expertise for gas projects in Europe.”

He added: “This project will help address northern Europe’s growing need for LNG as a transportation fuel.”

LNG shipments are split up by break-bulk terminals to facilitate their distribution as a fuel. Splitting up shipments into smaller quantities can then enable LNG to be used as a fuel for ships and heavy trucks.

Fluor’s office in Spain will be responsible for executing the project.

Gate Terminal predicts the terminal will be ready for operation in 2016.
