Honeywell has announced that it will supply a 250 million ft3/d modular gas processing plant and advanced automation systems to PetroVietnam subsidiary, PV Gas. The factory-built modular gas plant will be installed on site. The consortium of Posco Engineering Co., Ltd and PetroVietnam Technical Services Co. is the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor for the project.
PV Gas, Vietnam's primary gas provider, will use Honeywell UOP's modular gas processing plant to separate liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) from natural gas at its Ca Mau facility near the southern tip of Vietnam. Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) will serve as the integrated main automation contractor (I-MAC) and supply the integrated controls and safety systems for the facility and terminal. PV Gas's total capital investment for the project is approximately US$498 million.
"As part of the largest oil and gas provider in Vietnam, PV Gas is making smart investments in infrastructure and innovative technology to meet the country's goal of increasing the utilisation and profitability of natural gas, and this solution from Honeywell will help us achieve that," said Mr. Huynh Quang Hai, General Manager of Ca Mau Gas Processing Plant's management board. "Honeywell's modular gas plant and advanced automation controls offer a high recovery liquid efficiency, increasing the production of valuable products from natural gas."
"Honeywell UOP has worked with PetroVietnam for more than 20 years in refining and petrochemicals, and this project will help Vietnam meet its growing energy demands," said John Gugel, Vice President and General Manager of Honeywell UOP's Gas Processing and Hydrogen business. "Our modular gas processing plants are a proven solution for high-quality, fast and efficient gas processing anywhere in the world, helping companies generate revenue sooner and more cost-effectively than with stick-built plants."
The plant is expected to begin production in 2017.
