TGE Gas Engineering has signed an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract with Flogas Britain to convert the Avonmouth LNG terminal in Bristol, UK into an LPG terminal.
TGE also provided front end engineering and design (FEED) services during project development and the company says that it is ‘delighted’ to continue the relationship with Flogas and reinforce its presence in the UK market. Flogas supplies LPG, propane and butane to industrial and household consumers in the UK.
The Avonmouth terminal was designed as a bulk LNG production and storage facility, with peak shaving capability for the UK’s national gas grid. TGE will convert the existing atmospheric storage tanks to store LPG. The upgrade works will also include a new buffer storage, send-out and transfer system, additional road tanker loading and offloading facilities, ship offloading facilities, associated equipment and utility systems.
The refurbished LPG terminal is expected to enter operations in May 2022.
