Lopez firm subsidiary FGEN LNG Corporation has tapped Australia-based McConnell Dowell as its engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for its US$300 million interim liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal project.
The phase of its interim LNG terminal (IOT) to be covered by McConnell Dowell’s work will be the modification of its existing jetty; and then the targeted installation of an onshore gas receiving facility.
And while working on that component of the project, First Gen Corporation indicated that it is also “preparing to issue a binding invitation to tender for a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) upon completion of its ongoing non-binding process.”
The company has communicated to the Department of Energy (DOE) that the initial phase of its development will be an installation of FSRU so it can bring gas to the country as early as 2022; then a more permanent onshore LNG terminal will be constructed

While demoing the kitchen in interior designerAlison Lewis and her husband Dave’s Melbourne, Australia bungalow the crew from CJ and C Construction kept it real: “They jokingly referred to it as ‘The House From Hell,’” Lewis says with a chuckle. The brick inside the walls was crumbling, termites had ruined parts of the flooring, and the accents were, as Lewis says, about “as beige as beige comes.” Challenges notwithstanding, the couple focused on the endgame and played cheerleader, pushing the team to forge ahead.
Five weeks and $50,000 later, the Lewis family had a larger, combination kitchen/dining room outfitted in new appliances, whitewashed wood flooring, and an undulating peninsula. The most-notable introduction, though, is the cabinetry by Project Cabinets and the storage it supplies. Here’s exactly how she made the most of the new space.
