Several systems are in places such as feed gas metering, liquefaction, refrigeration, ethylene storage, boil off gas compression, product transfer to storage and LNG product metering. The EG LNG plant utilizes the ConocoPhillips Optimized Cascade(SM) Process.

A planned second train will produce 4.4 million metric tonnes of LNG per annum. In addition to the construction of the second train, the US$3 billion project includes construction of three gas pipelines to connect Nigeria, Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea gas fields with the LNG plant. In addition to the shareholders of the Train 1, Unión Fenosa Gas, a joint venture of Unión Fenosa, Eni, and E.ON will also participate in this project.

Bechtel was awarded the FEED contract for the second train in August 2006.
