GDF Sues and Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures are set to start front-end engineering design studies for their proposed liquid natural gas terminal in Cameroon. They want to complete the project in 2017.
The project comprises a production plant 30km south of Kribi on the southern coast of Cameroon and building a 270km offshore pipeline connecting offshore gas fields in Cameroon to the liquid natural gas terminal.
The liquification plant will have a production capacity of up to 3.5-million tons a year of liquid natural gas for the first train. The estimated project value is US2,5-billion dollars.
