The US-based engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm, the Bechtel Corporation, is seeking to complete construction of 69 modularized processing modules in Batam, Riau Islands, later this year to support its largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) project.

The modules are part of Bechtel'€™s three ongoing US$60 billion plant construction projects on Curtis Island, Australia; namely, the Australia Pacific LNG, Gladstone LNG and Queensland Curtis LNG ports.

According to Bechtel'€™s senior project manager, Darren Mort, it has so far manufactured 59 modules at the Batam yard. '€œ[The 59 modules] have arrived at the Australia Pacific LNG site on Curtis Island. The last module will be shipped from the yard later this year,'€ he wrote in an email. He added that the largest module to have been built at the yard weighed more than 3,400 tons and carried more than 8 kilometers of pipe inside its steel frame.

Bechtel began mobilization at the Batam yard in August 2012 and shipped the first of the modules to Curtis Island in February 2013. It claims that the work in Batam has brought with it investment of more than $300 million, including for materials and services.
