The Liquefied Natural Gas Import Facility (LNGI) project is the first of its kind in the State of Kuwait and has been established to meet Kuwait’s growing need for the cleanest fuel (natural gas) to generate electricity, as well as meet the needs of other natural gas consumers, such as oil refineries and petrochemical industries.

The LNGI project is the world’s largest capacity LNG storage & re-gasification green field project, and is the first permanent LNG import terminal in Kuwait. The area of each LNGI tank (being 6,644 m²) is 1.04 times the size of Jaber Al-Ahmad Stadium’s Pitch (6,400 m²).

The SeaShield 2000FD™ System was selected for the long-term protection of all 671 jetty piles within the tidal splash zone, based on its success with numerous similar projects around the world. The protection provided per pile ranges from 4 to 4.5 meters high with pile diameters ranging from 1,016mm to 1,321mm in diameter.
