Chiyoda Wins LNG-to-Power project in Papua New Guinea (PNG)

Chiyoda Corporation said it has been awarded a design development and engineering contract by Kumul Petroleum Holdings.

The FSRP facility will have a power generation capacity of 75 MW. This will be delivered to the local transmission grid. The facility will also be able to load and store 140,000 cubic meters of LNG.

The stored volumes can be offloaded to small-scale bulk cargo vessels and redistributed to smaller local power generation locations, the statement reads. The project will be located on the northern coast of Papua New Guinea, close to Lae, bringing the power generation to the area which contains some of the country’s key resources projects.

The project is part of PNG’s strategy to meet the demand and supply requirement by connecting 70 per cent of its population to secure electricity by 2030. It also aims to provide PNG’s growing industry with a cleaner and sustainable fuel option for additional power generation requirements.
