Qatar Petroleum has launched a tender process for the EPC of additional liquid products storage and loading facilities and mono-ethylene glycol storage and distribution facilities in Ras Laffan Industrial City.
The new facilities under this tender, which will be part of the North Field Expansion project, include a new propane storage tank, vapour recovery compressors for propane and butane tank refrigeration, a plant condensate storage tank, a MEG storage tank and distribution system, a new liquid products export berth and liquid product lines from the main NFE plant location to the liquid products storage area.
Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, minister of state for energy affairs, president and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, says: 'The release of this tender package reflects the continuing progress Qatar Petroleum is making on the expansion of our LNG production capacity.
'With the volume of associated liquid products, the NFE project will generate from offshore production and onshore gas processing, it was necessary to expand our existing storage and loading facilities. The unique approach in our contracting strategy for the multiple EPC packages allows us to match the execution expertise in the EPC contracting community to this specific scope of work.'
The NFE project involves the addition of four mega LNG trains as part of Qatar Petroleum's plans to expand Qatar's LNG production from 77 million to 110 million tonnes per annum by 2024.
