Wood secures contract for planned polyolefin plant

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

Wood has been awarded a new contract by Surhan Gas Chemical Operating Co. FC LLC (SGCOC) to provide a feasibility study for the exploitation of the ‘Mustakillning 25 yilligi’ (M25) field, which includes the construction of a new gas-to-chemical complex, in the Surkhandarya region of the Republic of Uzbekistan. The M25 natural gas reserves are estimated about 100 billion m3.

The gas field will process 4 billion Nm3/yr of raw natural gas, containing a high amount of sulfur and carbon dioxide. The raw natural gas will be treated in a gas processing plant for purification, mainly to remove water and sour components to eventually produce a stream of treated natural gas. The treated natural gas will be partly used for direct sale on the domestic or export market and partly used for the production of polyolefins (polyethylene and polypropylene) in a dedicated gas-to-chemical complex (GCC).
