LNG expansion in Spain

Foster Wheeler Iberia has been awarded two projects for liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal expansions in Cartagena and Huelva, by Enagas, the leading Spanish natural gas supplier. These projects are a part of the Spanish gas infrastructure development programme, which was put in place to meet rising LNG demand caused by several expected new gas turbine combined-cycle (GTCC) plants. Foster Wheeler is responsible for detailed engineering, equipment and material procurement, and construction supervision for both projects, which have an overall estimated investment value of USD 122 million. The Cartagena terminal project will expand its capacity from 450,000 to 600,000 Nm3/h (normal cubic meters per hour), and includes the installation of new lines of vaporisation, send-out pumps, a seawater system, and utilities. The Huelva terminal is being expanded from a capacity of 450,000 to 900,000 Nm3/h. This expansion involves the installation of open racks of seawater vaporisers, submerged combustion vaporisers, primary pumps, send-out pumps, boil-off compressors, and corresponding auxiliary equipment. Also, the storage capacity is increased from 160,000 to 310,000 m3 (cubic meters) with the installation of a new tank.
