Shell Awards JGC/KBR Project Management Contract for Pearl GTL Complex in Qatar

Source: 9/24/2005, Location: Middle East

JGC Corporation and KBR, the engineering, construction and services subsidiary of Halliburton, announced that Qatar Shell GTL Limited, a Royal Dutch Shell plc subsidiary, has executed a letter of intent to award a project management contract for the Pearl Gas to Liquids (GTL) project in Ras Laffan, Qatar, to a joint venture between JGC and KBR.

In addition to the development of offshore upstream gas production facilities, Shell’s Pearl GTL project comprises the development of an onshore GTL plant that will produce 140,000 barrels per day (bpd) of GTL products and around 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) of Natural Gas Liquids.

This latest contract comes on the heels of the successful completion of the basis of design (BOD)/basis design package (BDP) and the subsequent front-end engineering design (FEED) provided by the joint venture. The JGC/KBR team’s role will include project management and start-up support of the overall onshore Pearl GTL complex, along with engineering, procurement and construction management of the GTL synthesis, utilities and infrastructure sections of the complex. When complete, this facility will be the largest GTL plant in the world.

Importantly, the Pearl GTL project will accelerate Qatar’s strategy of diversifying natural gas usage and will serve to promote Qatar’s ambition of being the “GTL Capital of the World.” Virtually free of sulfur, nitrogen and aromatics, both in production and usage, the extremely clean GTL products offer significant improvements in air quality without contributing any further to global warming than existing alternatives.

In August JGC and KBR renewed their Natural Gas Alliance that began in 1999, thereby enabling the two companies to build upon their respective strengths and work together to pursue and execute the engineering and construction of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and GTL projects around the world. The alliance is composed of three global operating hubs: JGC in Yokohama, KBR in Houston and MWKL (a JGC/KBR subsidiary) in London, covering the world’s GTL/LNG market.
