Contract awarded for huge gas terminal

National Grid Grain gas facility

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has won work on Europe’s largest liquefied natural gas terminal.

The consultant was appointed by National Grid to provide engineering and design services for its Grain liquefied natural gas facility.

Located on the Isle of Grain in Kent, the terminal covers 1M.m3 and is of national importance. There are plans to boost the capacity of the site as well as the scope of its services.

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff will provide a range of services including feasibility studies; conceptual design and front-end engineering; safety and risk assessment; and hazard and operability studies.

The consultant’s oil and gas sector lead Glenn Halton said: “This is a crucial project for increasing the security and diversity of the UK’s energy supply while we progressively switch from coal to cleaner gas fired power plants.”
