Technip awarded service contract for a GTL facility in the US
Technip was awarded by Sasol the front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for a gas-to-liquids (GTL) (1) plant to be built in Louisiana, USA. The GTL facility will have a capacity of more than 96,000 barrels per standard day.
As the reference and main execution center within the Group for GTL, Technip's operating center in Rome, Italy, will execute the FEED phase of the project.
This contract falls within the existing Front End Loading (FEL) Alliance between Technip and Sasol in the GTL domain.
