The €47m (£40m) contract is for an LNG jetty with approach trestle together with the mechanical, engineering and piping services. BAM International and its local joint venture partner MAG Engineering & Contracting will complete this project in 15 months and the civil works are designed by BAM’s engineering company DMC.
The LNG Terminal forms part of ADC’s plan for developing Aqaba’s Energy Ports. The government has tasked ADC to develop Jordan’s energy intake capabilities to ensure a consistent supply of energy fuels such as oil, LNG and LPG.
BAM has recently completed the extension of Aqaba Container Terminal (for APMT and ADC) just north of this new LNG terminal. Further south, BAM is currently building the quay wall for the Aqaba New Port project, a second port in line with the country’s economic master plan.
