Black & Veatch has secured a contract for the licensing technology and related services for sulphur recovery units (SRU) and Acid Gas Removal Units (AGRU) to support natural gas processing on the Jurassic field, a project central to Kuwait Oil Company's (KOC) strategy to increase gas production.

Kuwait has a very aggressive gas production target for 2030. Developing the Jurassic field is key to attain this goal. Black & Veatch’s contribution centres on acid gas removal and sulphur recovery at Jurassic Gas Facility 1, which will produce about half of the Jurassic field's potential.

Thomas Christensen - Black & Veatch's Managing Director, Oil & Gas, Middle East and North Africa - said, “We were able to offer Kuwait Oil Company a total natural gas processing solution, delivered by a single source, bringing together multiple technologies.”

The total technology solution encompasses two acid gas removal trains designed for feed gas flow; and three parallel identical sulphur recovery trains, with dedicated tail gas treatment units for each sulphur train.

Black & Veatch is involved in every step of the assets’ lifecycle, from front end engineering design to operation and maintenance support. The company is responsible for the basic engineering design package and is bringing together various technologies to meet the performance requirements.

“We are committed to Kuwait’s prosperity. By developing gas resources to meet domestic energy requirements, the country will be able to divert more crude for export. Black & Veatch’s role in the Jurassic project supports this aim by processing gas for domestic use,” added Abdul Gafoor Pulavan, Black & Veatch’s project manager.
