Hydrocarbon Engineering,


Chiyoda Corporation, CB&I and Saipem have announced that the three companies’ joint venture, CCS JV, has been selected as contractor for the initial development of the onshore LNG park in Mozambique by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation on behalf of the coventures in Mozambique’s Offshore Area 1. The selection of CCS JV is subject to negotiation and entry into a definitive agreement prior to Anadarko and its coventure partners taking a final investment decision.

The initial scope of work for the onshore LNG park includes two LNG trains, each with a capacity of 6 million tpy, two LNG storage tanks, condensate storage, multiberth marine jetty and associated utilities and infrastructure.

Elliott Group

Elliott Group has won an order for a coker compression string for the Antipinsky refinery in Tyumen, Russia. The project is part of the refinery’s Phase III expansion to increase capacity and to incorporate EURO 5 standards for diesel fuel. Foster Wheeler is the licensor and design developer for the project. Elliott will supply 20M5 motor driven compressor and auxiliaries, including a lube oil system, a dry gas seal panel, and a control system. The compressor string will enable the refinery to meet stringent clean fuel requirements. The compressor will be built and tested at Elliott’s manufacturing facility in Sodegaura, Japan.

Alexander Ponomarev, Area Sales Manager for Russia said, “this award reflects Antipinsky refinery’s confidence in Elliott’s technical strengths. Our ability to meet new process requirements within the existing footprint was also a key consideration.”

UGI Energy

UGI Energy Services, LLC, has announced plans to build an LNG production facility in northern Pennsylvania that will utilise Marcellus shale gas. The proposed facility will be adjacent to UGI Energy Services’ Manning natural gas compression station located in Wyoming County, Pennsylvania. Natural gas will be supplied by its Auburn gathering system, which transports Marcellus shale gas produced from local wells to major interstate pipelines serving markets in the Mid Atlantic region. The LNG plant, which will include both liquefaction and local storage, is expected to be in full commercial operation by early 2017 and have the capability of producing 120 000 gal./d of LNG. The total capital investment will be approximately US$60 million.

Brad Hall, President of UGI Energy Services commented, “the market for LNG continues to grow thanks to its affordable cost environmental benefits when compared to other petroleum products. As a result, truck fleets, oil and gas drilling rigs and remote industrial users not tied to the natural gas grid continue to switch to LNG. In the coming years, we also expect the use of LNG to increase in marine, rail and mining applications.”
