Paris, April 12, 2007 - Nexans, the worldwide leader in the cable industry, has been awarded a contract worth approximately 10 million Euro to supply medium voltage (MV) and low voltage (LV) power cables and instrumentation cables for the Yemen LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) terminal project. This project is being commissioned on behalf of Yemen LNG Ltd (YLNG) by YEMGAS FZCO, a joint venture led by Technip, one of the major corporations in the field of oil, gas and petrochemical engineering, construction and services, and also including JGC (Japan Gas Corporation) and the American company KBR, one of the leaders in the design and construction of major LNG production plant.

Nexans will be the sole cable supplier for the Yemen LNG terminal project, and will provide approximately 1,100 km of medium voltage and low voltage power, instrumentation and fiber optic cables armored with steel tapes. These cables will be used to carry power, data and telecommunications throughout the terminal. They will also be used in control and instrumentation applications.

The Middle East region is a fast growing area where many projects have been constructed in the past few years. The petrochemical industry has a huge need for equipment and Nexans is very proud to be part of it, providing high quality, reliable solutions for such complex oil & gas projects. Moreover, this contract underlines the close cooperation between Nexans and the major engineering companies such as Technip” said Bruno Thomas, Nexans’ Executive Vice-President for the Middle-East and other areas including South America, Africa and Russia

The new plant will be located at the Arabian Gulf port of Balhaf on the southern coast of Yemen, approximately 140 km west of the port city of Al Mukalla and 380 km east of Aden. It will consist of two LNG liquefaction trains and will be capable of delivering a total of 6.7 million tonnes per annum of LNG.

The cables will be manufactured by Nexans plants in Belgium and France, and installation is scheduled for completion by mid 2007. The LNG terminal should be ready for the end of 2008.
