The electrical scope included foundation installation, complete cabling, terminations, instrumentation, heat tracing, and installation of all electrical equipment such as step-up transformers, bus ducts, switchgear, unit substations, site and interior lighting, plant-wide digital control systems, interconnection with Freeport switch yard, and power control centers. Major balances of plant equipment included a high-pressure gas compressor, electric and gas metering stations, fire water system, station transformer and electrical switchgear and relaying. Included coordination of all utility and agency interfaces, and commissioning support were also included.

Other aspects: Coordination of multiple sources of engineering and design documents and a fast paced construction schedule. Focus on maintaining high quality of work and safety record in a high profile environment. Heavy field coordination of multiple trades to maintain flow of work and changing site logistics. Management of a controlled Quality Assurance and Document Control Program, Critical Path Scheduling, and Contractor Health & Safety Plan.
