Houston-based CB&I Lummus was awarded a contract for concept development services for the Yamal LNG Integrated Project by Yamal LNG LLC to be completed by early 2011.

The project includes production, treatment, transportation, liquefaction and shipping of natural gas and natural gas liquids from the South Tambey field on the Yamal Peninsula in Northwestern Siberia, Russia. The natural gas reserves in the field are estimated at more than one trillion cu meters.

Due to the remoteness and extreme conditions, the project is considered one of the world’s most challenging energy projects.
