With QatarEnergy’s exercise of EPC-3 Contract options, the planned duration of the project is 47 months and the final contract amount exceeds 800 million dollars
Técnicas Reunidas was selected on 19 August 2021 as the EPC contractor for the expansion of the QatarEnergy existing liquid products storage and loading facilities for light naphtha and propane and the expansion of import facilities for mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) within Ras Laffan Industrial City. These facilities will support liquid production from four new LNG trains announced in February 2021 for the North Field East projects in which the first of these LNG trains has a scheduled start-up by year-end 2025.
With QatarEnergy’s exercise of the EPC-3 Contract Options, further expansion of the liquid storage and loading facilities will be enabled for additional propane and butane, light naphtha and field condensate production from the two future additional LNG trains that are planned for the North Field South project. In addition, existing MEG storage facilities will be expanded to support existing offshore production. The full EPC-3 contact is awarded on a lump sum basis.
QatarEnergy has exercised the North Field South Options for the North Field Expansion Project EPC-3 contract to expand the existing liquid product storage and loading facilities required for two future additional LNG trains that are planned for the North Field South project.
The North Field Expansion Project EPC-3 contract, which was awarded on 19 August 2021 to Técnicas Reunidas, provides for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) to expand the existing infrastructure for increased liquid production from four new LNG trains announced in February 2021 for the North Field East project with scheduled start-up of the first LNG train by year-end 2025.
The exercise of the North Field South options includes the expansion of existing liquid storage and loading facilities for light naphtha and field condensate, propane and butane and the expansion of existing storage facilities for Mono-ethylene glycol, within Ras Laffan Industrial City. The planned duration of the project is now 47 months, and the contract value exceeds 800 million dollars.
This contract is the culmination of front-end engineering and design (FEED) work that began in early 2018. When completed, the North Field East (NFE) Project will increase the State of Qatar’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) production capacity from 77 million tons per annum (Mtpa) to 110 Mtpa. The second phase of the planned LNG expansion for the North Field South (NFS) Project, will further increase Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 110 Mtpa to 126 Mtpa. The NFE Project and NFS Project are both part of the North Field Expansion (NFXP) Project
