Bechtel, Enppi, Petrojet Win FEED contract for Idku Energy Hub 

Shell Egypt, EGAS and Petronas have awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract to a Bechtel-led coalition that includes Enppi and Petrojet for Idku Energy Hub project.

 The coalition will study a proposed unified power system between the onshore gas processing plant of the West Delta Deep Marine (WDDM) gas fields in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Egypt, and the Egyptian LNG export terminal (ELNG) in Idku, east of Alexandria.

Through the FEED, the companies will explore the benefits of a One Power Hub concept, integrating the electrical power systems at the WDDM and ELNG, as opposed to having two separate systems.

This system seeks to increase the power saving and greenhouse gas (GHG) abatement benefits of unifying the electrical power systems of the onshore plants. The synergies will include optimization of the number of running gas turbine generators, modelling the most efficient operating mode for both plants, reducing GHG emissions and economizing the fuel consumption in the entire hub.

This project came in line with the Egyptian strategy to decarbonize existing oil and gas facilities across the country and deliver on its climate change strategy.

On this occasion, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El-Molla commented: “I am so proud that the oil and gas sector is contributing significantly to achieving top strategic goals: accelerating decarbonization and economizing power consumption.”

“I am pleased that our partners are taking such initiatives to promote these priorities,” the Minister added.

“This project is a demonstration of our commitment to powering progress by providing more and cleaner energy,” Khaled Kacem, Vice President and Country Chair of Shell Egypt, said. “As partners in Egypt’s journey to become a regional energy hub we are also mobilizing our efforts and expertise to support the country’s energy efficiency ambitions. This is also a significant step towards full implementation of the decarbonization MOU between Shell and the MOP that was signed earlier this year,” Kacem added.

“This project is an excellent example of private and public sector partnership to support Egypt’s decarbonization strategy,” Paul Marsden, President of Bechtel Energy said. “Our Bechtel team is looking forward to continuing to support Egypt’s climate change strategy.”
