BAM International, the operating company of leading European construction services firm Royal BAM Group, has completed the construction of a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal for Aqaba Development Corporation (ADC).

Built at a cost of €65 million ($73 million), the Aqaba terminal was handed over to ADC on Tuesday (June 23), two months ahead of schedule, said BAM in its statement.

In partnership with sister company BAM Contractors from Ireland and Jordan’s engineering company MAG, BAM International designed, built and commissioned an LNG jetty with approach trestle, including the mechanical, engineering and piping services, buildings, infrastructure works and tug jetty berth for attending tugs within 17 months.

The civil works were designed by BAM’s engineering company BAM Infraconsult.

The LNG terminal forms part of ADC’s plan for developing Aqaba’s energy ports. The government has tasked ADC to develop Jordan’s energy intake capabilities to ensure a consistent supply of energy fuels such as oil, LNG and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).

BAM has been active in Jordan since 2011. In 2014 BAM International completed the Aqaba New Port project for ADC and in 2013 Aqaba Container Terminal was delivered to APMT and ADC
