Wood Group has secured a $12 million front-end engineering design (FEED) contract with Honghua for its liquefied natural gas (LNG) platform development in the West Delta area of the Gulf of Mexico.The main objective of the FEED is to finalize the design of the world’s first offshore platform-based natural gas liquefaction and storage facility. Wood recently completed the pre-FEED for this project.Wood’s scope of work includes the onshore gas pre-treatment plant configuration and layouts, general utilities, feed gas processing and compression, and transportation and delivery via repurposed pipelines from the existing onshore Toca and Venice, Louisiana, facilities to the LNG facility 10 miles offshore. Once complete, around 2020, gas from the Texas Permian Basin will be transported to the offshore platform where it will be liquefied, stored and ultimately exported globally.Wood will compile and develop the necessary technical documentation for a Deep Water Port (DWP) permit application to United States Maritime Administration (MARAD). This includes designing onshore, pipelines and offshore elements of the facility in sufficient detail to satisfy the MARAD. Wood will update and complete the preliminary design of the full offshore gas liquefaction facility. The facility will be designed to produce up to 4.2 million tonnes per year of LNG and to store 300,000 cubic meters of LNG, which is enough to fill 120 Olympic-sized swimming pools.The FEED is being conducted in collaboration with EnTX GasTek Global Ltd, Baker Hughes, a GE Company, and Braemar Technical Services (Braemar), the Owner’s Engineer on the LNG 21 project. Braemar is also leading the design and development of the unique FSP LNG storage system.Andrew Stewart, CEO for Wood’s Asset Solutions Americas business, said: “We are very excited to be a part of this ingenious project. Our ability to provide innovative engineering design solutions highlights our global success in working with international partners. Wood’s best-in-class planning, execution and delivery performance helps to assure our clients their projects will be successful.”

5. Gunners to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovi? a two-year contract? – Ibrahimovi?, according to the Daily Star, is keen on ending his career in the Premier League and while Manchester United have been strongly linked, the Gunners are also interested. United are willing to offer the 34-year-old Paris Saint-Germain striker, who is out of contract in the summer, £250,000 per week, but Arsenal are allegedly preparing a lucrative offer of their own. Dream away, Arsenal fans! Arsenal have some work to do this summer.The Gunners have fallen short – again – in the Premier League title race, and supporters are expecting changes at the end of the season.The transfer window could therefore be a busy period, and various names have been linked with a moves to and from north London.So, talkSPORT has taken a look at the latest transfer rumours concerning Arsenal – check them out by viewing the slideshow above. 1. Pep Guardiola asks Manchester City to monitor Theo Walcott? – Read all about it below, then check out four more top transfer stories on Arsenal by clicking the arrow above, right – Incoming Citizens manager Guardiola has, according to the Evening Standard, asked his soon-to-be new club to monitor Walcotts situation at the Emirates.

Arsenal to move for Granit Xhaka if move for N’Golo Kante falls through? – The Gunners have reportedly listed Kante as a major summer target, but are unsure on the figure Leicester City could demand given he has been key to their title-challenge this season. If they fail to land the Foxes midfielder, The Sun claim Arsenal will push through a deal for Granit Xhaka, with talks already taking place over a £27.5m transfer. 5 3. Newcastle want full-back Kieran Gibbs? – The Magpies, according to reports cited in the Express, are interested in luring Gibbs to St James Park in the summer. Despite being a bit-part player at Arsenal having fallen behind Nacho Monreal in the pecking order, the Gunners could demand as much as £12m for his signature. Any such move is likely to depend upon Newcastles Premier League survival, however. 2. Arsenal planning move for Chelsea youngster Dominic Solanke? – Solanke is currently on loan at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem and his future has predictably been called into question. The 18-year-old has one year remaining on his deal at Stamford Bridge, and is reportedly demanding £50,000 per week to extend his stay. Chelsea are unlikely to give into such demands given he is yet to make a start for the senior team, and Arsenal are now said to be considering a move. The Sun claim Solanke would consider a pay cut if hes assured of a role in the Gunners first team.
