The Yemen LNG Company (YLNG) was created to produce and export LNG for a period of 25 years after commencement of Commercial Production, transporting the feed gas from the Marib fields to the LNG Plant, and to deliver feed gas to Yemen Gas Company in the North of Sana's area through a Spur Line, and to construct all corresponding facilities.

A Project Definition study was performed by the Lead Shareholder TOTAL from July 1995 to March 1996, the design criteria of the facilities were defined and the selection of the LNG Plant site and the pipeline routes was made.

For that purpose, a data acquisition campaign was launched for the different potential sites with topographical and geo-technical surveys. Out of six potential sites surveyed in June 1995, Bal-Haf was selected as the best technical option with minimal dredging and lowest capital investment. The Bal-Haf site is on the Gulf of Aden coast, approximately 160 km West of Al-Mukalla, 320 km south-east of the gas producing field of Marib and 450 km east of Aden. The pipeline routes between the Marib area and the delivery points in Bal-Haf and near Sana'a were also identified.

A Front End Engineering Design phase (FEED) commenced in March 1996 and was completed by the year-end 1997.
