Qatar Petroleum selects Técnicas Reunidas for the North Field LNG (Qatar)

25 Aug 2021

Qatar Petroleum has awarded a engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for its North Field LNG Expansion Project to Técnicas Reunidas (Qatar). The company will act as the EPC contractor for the expansion of existing liquid products (condensate, propane and butane) storage and loading facilities and the expansion of import facilities for Mono-Ethylene Glycol within Ras Laffan Industrial City, as well as other ancillary facilities and pipelines serving the North Field LNG Expansion Project. The North Field LNG Expansion Project comprises two phases : the North Field East (NFE) and the North Field South (NFS).

The project will be utilised to handle liquid products from the 4 new LNG trains comprising the NFE project, which is scheduled to start-up before the end of 2025. The facilities will also support two new LNG trains comprising the NFS project. When completed, the NFE project will increase Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 77 Mt/year to 110 Mt/year, while the NFS project will further increase Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 110 Mt/year to 126 Mt/year.

Previously, in February 2021, Qatar Petroleum took the final investment decision (FID) to develop the North Field East (NFE) project. The company awarded an EPC contract to CTJV, a joint venture of Chiyoda Corporation and Technip Energies, to build 4 LNG trains, each with a capacity of 8 Mt/year, and associated utility facilities, including a large carbon capture and storage (CCS) facility. The new facilities will receive around 62 bcm/year of feed gas from the Eastern sector of Qatar’s North Field. Production is scheduled to start by end-2025 and to reach full capacity in late 2026 or early 2027.
