ABB to automate LNG Terminal in China

Delivery includes System 800xA Extended Automation for integrated control and safety

Beijing, P.R. China, December 19, 2006 - ABB has won a $4 million contract to supply an Integrated Central Control System for a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal in the Peoples Republic of China. The Fujian LNG Terminal & Trunkline Project will be owned and operated by CNOOC Fujian LNG Co. Ltd., a co-investment of China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) and Fujian Investment and Development Corporation.

Located in the city of Xiuyu, Fujian Province, in southeast China, the LNG regasification terminal will have an initial capacity of 2.6 million tons of LNG per year in Phase I. Expansion plans are already under way. The natural gas from the terminal will be provided to the gas fired power plant terminals, city industries, commercial and residential users along the coast.

ABB's scope for this latest award includes 800xA systems for the terminal integrated control system and safety systems (including Emergency Shut Down and Fire & Gas) and a SCADA Vantage system for the centralized Human System Interface that will be used on the pipeline and terminal. System delivery is expected in June 2007.

"Award of the Fujian LNG automation project is helping us to continually expand ABB's strong position in the LNG market and growing Asian markets," said Sandy Taylor, Group Vice President of ABB's Oil and Gas business.

ABB is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 107,000 people.
