Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT), a leading designer of membrane containment systems for the maritime transportation and storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG), says the construction of two LNG storage tanks ordered by Energy World Corporation (EWC) in Southeast Asia is "progressing well".

In 2009 and 2011, Energy World Corporation (EWC) and GTT signed two contracts for land storage tank construction in Indonesia and the Philippines, to be equipped with GTT's GST® Membrane Full Integrity System. For both projects, GTT is supervising the detailed design of the storage tank containment systems, provides technical assistance on site during the containment systems installation and is to assist the operator during the whole tank life.

The first project between EWC and GTT is the Sengkang LNG site development project in Keera, Indonesia. So far, the walls of the 88,000-cubic-metre tank have been completed since the summer and the roof installation is to "start soon", according to GTT. Installation of containment system is planned for beginning of 2015.

The second construction project - a 130,000-cubic-metre LNG storage tank - is being built for LNG Hub Terminal on Pagbilao Grande Island, Quezon Province, in the Philippines.

"Both projects are progressing in parallel, and, as for Sengkang, the containment system is planned for beginning of next year," GTT said in a statement.

Stewart W. G. Elliott, chairman, managing director and chief executive officer of EWC, said that it was "a significant construction step for the Philippines' first LNG receiving terminal and for the Indonesian liquefaction plant".

Philippe Berterottière, President & CEO of GTT remarked that the two projects were "significant first steps" on the return of GTT membrane type land storage systems to the world market.

"These projects both benefit from the inherent cost and schedule advantages of the GTT design," GTT added.
