Qatar Petroleum (QP) has issued an invitation to tender packages for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of additional liquid products storage and loading facilities and Mono-Ethylene Glycol (MEG) storage and distribution facilities, according to a company statement.
The facilities will be located in the Ras Laffan Industrial City and will be part of the North Field Expansion (NFE) Project. The NFE Project involves the addition of four mega liquefied natural gas (LNG) trains as part of a plan to expand LNG production from 77 million to 110 million tons per year by 2024.
New facilities covered under this tender include a new propane storage tank, vapor 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.
“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,” said Saad Al-Kaabi, QP CEO.
