Cegelec to Install New Control System for 2 LNG Trains

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/2/2010, Location: Middle East

Cegelec, an international group providing technological services to companies and public authorities, has been awarded a contract by Qatar Petroleum to replace the turbine and compressor control system for two natural gas liquids production trains in Mesaieed, Qatar, over the next 18 months.

Under the US$ 15 million contract, an integrated GE-Mark VI system will replace the existing control system for Trains 1 and 2, which utilizes pneumatic technology. Compressor operation will be optimised without compromising safety. In addition, the existing fire protection system will be replaced with a water mist system interfaced with the new control system.

The work will be conducted under stringent unit shutdown conditions requiring full proficiency in all aspects of project management.

Cegelec was recently awarded a US$ 40 million EPC turnkey contract to design and build a blast-proof control building at the QAPCO petrochemical complex, again in Mesaieed. The Group also provides technical assistance and commissioning services, for example for Phase 2 of the common water cooling system in Ras Laffan, where the end customer was Qatar Petroleum.

“Cegelec has extensive experience in upgrading control systems for the oil and gas industry, especially for GASCO at its Bu Hasa, Asab and Bab NGL extraction plants in Abu Dhabi,” said Jean-Michel Lang, Vice President of Cegelec Oil & Gas. “Our teams are fully familiar with the entire industrial process, something that is a strong competitive advantage for our customers, especially during complex unit shutdowns.”

Philippe Gastineau, President of Cegelec Qatar, added: “We are delighted that Qatar Petroleum entrusted Cegelec with this important systems control upgrading. Cegelec Qatar have been playing an important role with a large number of industrial clients (QatarGas, Qatofin, Qatalum, Shell Pearl and it is the first time that we have a direct award from Qatar Petroleum. Our ambitious growth plans in the country, supported by our shareholder Qatari Diar, cover not only the oil and gas business but also large public and private infrastructure projects.”
