TOKYO -- Japanese engineering group Chiyoda has won an order to develop liquefied natural gas plants in Qatar, including facilities capable of capturing and storing carbon dioxide to reduce their environmental impact.

State-owned energy company Qatar Petroleum awarded the contract Monday local time to a consortium formed by Chiyoda and French peer Technip. The order is worth $13 billion, one of the largest figures a Japanese company has received for building LNG plants.
