Southern Vietnam LNG Terminal and Gas-to-Power Project: Vietnam Electricity ("Grantee") invites submission of qualifications and proposal data (collectively referred to as the "Proposal") from interested U.S. firms that are qualified on the basis of experience and capability to conduct a feasibility study for the Grantee to develop a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal to support gas-to-power needs in Southern Vietnam. The planned terminal would supply the fuel needs of the next generation of power centers in Southern Vietnam, and provide backup fuel supply of LNG to existing power plants.

EVN is the state-owned power company and the third largest company in Vietnam and has a total installed power generation capacity of over 28,000 MW (about 58%) till the end of 2018. The company's core business is diversified throughout the energy sector, including production, transmission, distribution and trading of electricity; investment and capital management in power projects; and management, operation, repair, maintenance and upgrading of infrastructure throughout the power sector. It carries out its business through EVN and its main subsidiary company groups: three (3) Power Generation Corporations, five (5) Power Distribution Corporations, and the National Power Transmission Corporation. EVN continues to make significant investments in generation as the demand for power in Vietnam is increasing at a rate of nearly 10 percent per annum.

In March 2016, the Vietnamese government published revisions to the 7th National Master Plan for Power Development for 2011-2020 (PDP7) for Vietnam. The revised PDP7 sets out a blueprint for expanding power generation in Vietnam by using a mix of energy sources, with total installed capacity rising dramatically to about 129.5 gigawatts (GW) by 2030 (from 48.5 GW till the end of 2018). Natural gas-fired power generation comprises approximately 15 percent of this planned power mix. In response to revised PDP7, EVN is planning the development of a LNG terminal in southern Vietnam-including marine port, LNG storage, regasification, and related infrastructure- to supply the fuel needs of the next generation of power centers in southern Vietnam, and provide backup fuel supply of LNG to existing power plants (the "Project").. It is anticipated that the LNG terminal, storage facilities and regasification trains would be developed in a phased approach, to match the country's power plant build out and gas demand. However, the use of LNG and its importation is new to Vietnam. As such, EVN requires a detailed feasibility study to conduct site selection for an LNG terminal and help to determine the optimal terminal design and regasification technology layout, in addition to economic and financial analyses, and a focused global LNG market analysis.

The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a $1,494,020 grant to the Grantee from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA).
