ADNOC Sour Gas Constructing New Sulphur Pipeline for its Shah Sour Gas Field

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/14/2018, Location: Middle East

ADNOC Sour Gas, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), has confirmed work is on track to construct a new Sulfur pipeline, to carry molten Sulfur produced by its Shah field sour gas operations, as it maximizes the value of its resources.

The additional pipeline will carry the liquid Sulfur from the main processing plant to the granulation Sulfur plant located 11 kilometers away, where the Sulfur is granulated, stockpiled, and ultimately transported, via rail, to a Sulfur handling terminal at ADNOCís Ruwais Downstream hub.

The pipeline, which will cater for future Sulfur production expansion, create greater value from a main commodity of sour gas processing and increase flexibility around existing operations, is scheduled to be commissioned in 2019.

The Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning of the new pipeline is being carried out by MMEC Mannesmann (Germany). Nearly 60 per cent of the value of the EPC contract will flow back into the UAE economy under ADNOCís In-Country Value program.

Sulfur is produced in large quantities in sour gas fields as Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) is removed from the gas before it can be further processed. ADNOC exports granulated Sulfur to fertilizer customers around the world.

In partnership with Occidental Petroleum, ADNOC will explore potential opportunities to increase sour gas production capacity as part of its integrated gas strategy.

Today, out of the one billion cubic of sour gas processed each day, the Shah plant produces 500 million cubic feet per day of network gas, 4,400 tons per day of Natural Gas liquids, 33,000 barrels per day of petroleum condensates and around 10,000 tons per day of pure granulated Sulfur.

The Shah sour gas field and associated processing facilities are operated by ADNOC Sour Gas, a joint venture between ADNOC and Occidental Petroleum.
