Bureau Veritas Wins Contract for CNOOC Shanghai LNG Project
Bureau Veritas' LNG services in China have been rapidly expanding thanks to the Shanghai LNG project.
We aim to maintain and strengthen our leading position in design review, site supervision and inspection services for the LNG industry.
China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) was undertaking the construction of a new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) receiving terminal project, located near Shanghai, in the Yangshan Deepwater Port, only 45km from Pudong International Airport. The Sanghai project was key component for transmitting LNG produced in Malaysia to the East China economic hub of the Shanghai region and beyond and at completion would be capable of receiving six million tons of LNG per year.
CNOOC needed an independent inspection services company able to assure it that its entire Shanghai LNG project, including facilities and equipment, comply with all applicable laws, standards and specifications.
Bureau Veritas was awarded the 3-year contract precisely because of its unique ability to meet all CNOOC requirements globally and especially in China. A full scope of inspections was initiated with Bureau Veritas' experienced technical centre engineers in charge of the project's design review and calculations.
Inspection services have since been deployed worldwide for shop inspection of the equipment manufacturers supplying the facility. Bureau Veritas inspection teams continue their on-site work during installation. Bureau Veritas China is also providing Consulting Services throughout the project construction phase and will ensure witnessing during the commissioning phase.
CNOOC had already called upon Bureau Veritas China in the past, notably for design review, site supervision and inspection services of its Fujian LNG receiving terminal project and Bureau Veritas has valuable gained experience working on the PetroChina Tangshan LNG project as well. CNOOC is pleased with the flexibility and availability of Bureau Veritas' worldwide network for inspection supportand its timely, high quality of performance. When Bureau Veritas China submits proposals they are very precise and professional. The client appreciates the excellent working relationship it has developed with the Bureau Veritas inspection teams in China and worldwide.
