Stainless tubes for GTL project

Sitindustrie Group, with its Swiss Co. Zwahlen & Mayr, has acquired an order to supply VSA Consortium, gathering Veolia Water, Saipem and Al Jaber, with 230tns of high corrosion resistance welded stainless steel tubes for the building of 3 evaporators for the Shell Pearl gas to liquid (GTL) project in Qatar. Tubes will be 18m long in a high corrosion resistance stainless steel alloy. The Pearl GTL project, sponsored by Qatar Petroleum and Shell, comprises the development of upstream gas production facilities as well as an onshore GTL plant that will produce 140,000bpd of GTL fuels and products along with 120,000bpd of condensate, liquefied petroleum gas and ethane. The project includes the development of two blocks within Qatar’s vast North Field gas reserves, which will produce 1.6 billion standard cubic feet per day of natural gas. This project will provide an alternative way to utilize Qatar’s enormous gas resources in an economically robust and environmentally constructive way.
