Technip wins project in Saudi Arabia

Technip has been awarded a lump sum turnkey contract by Saudi Arabian Oil Co. (Saudi Aramco) for the installation of a new LNG compression train with associated facilities in the existing Abqaiq plants. This program’s primary objective is to provide a reliable and safe gas compression system at the plants with sufficient capacity to process the low pressure gases in a manner that complies with current environmental regulations. The installation will allow the retirement of some existing facilities. The facilities under Technip’s scope of work include a new compression train which will be an addition to the existing train built by Technip under a previous contract as part of the Shaybah oil field development. The facilities will also include a heat recovery system for existing and new trains and a new primary flare fed by new flare lines running through the Abqaiq facilities to the existing flare lines. The control system will be expanded by implementing field-bus technology. This project will be carried out by the engineering centre of Technip in Paris. It will start in July 2001 and is scheduled for completion by mid 2003.
