LNG Break Bulk Terminal

Fluor was awarded a contract to provide engineering, procurement, and construction management for Gate Terminal's LNG Break Bulk Terminal in Rotterdam. Fluor's services at the terminal cover the jetty, loading facilities, boil-off gas compressors, connection to the LNG terminal, and other facilities.


Client's Challenge

The LNG Break Terminal project will help address Northern Europe's need for LNG as a transportation fuel. Break terminals slip up large-scale LNG shipments into smaller quantities to facilitate the distribution of LNG to be used as fuel for ships and heavy trucks.


Fluor's Solution

Fluor's LNG engineering, procurement, and construction expertise is critical for the execution of this important European project. Fluor's office in Spain will lead the project and provide design-build services for terminal facilities in Rotterdam. The project is scheduled for completion in 2016.


Conclusion

Fluor looks forward to the opportunity to working with Gate Terminal to provide LNG as a transportation fuel for Europe. Fluor has served the LNG industry for more than 50 years and has participated in a wide variety of LNG projects, including various types of terminals.
