An EPIC contract has been awarded to STTS, a French-Italian consortium comprising of Saipem, Technigaz, Technimont, and Sofregas, for the construction of the receiving facilities that will receive and regasify the LNG from the NW Shelf; it is anticipated that the terminal will commence commercial operation in June, 2006.
