Aker Kvaerner in joint venture (50/50) with Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries (IHI) was awarded a contract for the engineering, procurement and construction of the Ingleside Energy Center regasification terminal in Ingleside, Texas, USA. The contract value to the Aker Kvaerner and IHI joint venture is $665m.

The Ingleside Energy Center LNG terminal will be the second large LNG regasification project to combine Aker Kvaerner's expertise in regasification engineering and construction management for LNG facilities and IHI's position as a market leader within design and manufacturing of LNG storage and processing systems in one integrated delivery model. The design and engineering will be directed from Houston involving approximately 125 personnel from Aker Kvaerner and IHI. In addition, the project will employ a peak construction labor force of approximately 750.
