Shanghai, April 28, 2022. - QatarEnergy has awarded to the joint venture formed by Técnicas Reunidas (70%) and Wison Engineering Ltd. (30%), the EPC-4 contract "NFXP Sulfur Project", for more than 600 million USD.
The project involves the construction of new sulfur-handling, storage and loading facilities to process and export sulfur from the ongoing LNG plant expansion at Ras Laffan Industrial City (RLIC). The new sulfur plant will process an average of 5,000 tons of molten sulfur per day.
The project includes the connection of the new facilities to the existing sulfur gathering system, as well as new granulators, solid sulfur storage capacity, sulfur handling equipment, and a new ship loading system.
The expected duration of the project is 48 months, with some 415 engineers on peak.
With the execution of this EPC contract, the only remaining major EPC contract for the delivery of the North Field Expansion Project, comprising the North Field East (NFE) and the North Field South (NFS) projects, is the EPC contract for the NFS two onshore processing and liquefaction trains, which is currently planned to be awarded by the end of 2022.
When completed, the NFE and NFS projects will increase the State of Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 77 MTPA today to 126 MTPA by 2027.
