Technip Energies Wins EPCC Contract For North Field South Project

A joint venture led by Technip Energies, in partnership with Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC), has won an engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) contract from QatarEnergy for the onshore facilities of the North Field South Project (NFS).

The award will cover the delivery of two mega trains, each with a capacity of 8 Mtpa of liquefied natural gas (LNG). It will include a large CO2 carbon capture and sequestration facility of 1.5 Mtpa, leading to 25% plus reduction of greenhouse gas emissions when compared to similar LNG facilities, the company said.

The expansion project will produce approximately 16 Mtpa of additional LNG, increasing Qatar’s total production from 110 to 126 Mtpa.

“We are extremely honored to have been awarded by QatarEnergy this mega LNG project, along with our long-standing partner CCC, a leading construction company for LNG trains,” said Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies. “This award is a testament to the trust, extent, and strength of our relationship with QatarEnergy. This new project also reflects our leadership in the LNG market as well as our proven ability to integrate technologies towards low carbon LNG, critical in solving the trilemma for affordable, available, and sustainable energy.”

The North Field is the world’s single largest non-associated natural gas field. The NFS project, owned by QatarEnergy in partnership with a number of international oil companies, and operated by Qatargas, is the second phase of the North Field Expansion Project, which was announced in 2017. When fully completed, it will increase Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 110 Mtpa, which will be achieved by the end of the first phase North Field East expansion in 2025, to 126 Mtpa by 2027.

The NFS project involves producing gas from the southern sector of the North Field. The gas will be transported by pipeline to Ras Laffan Industrial City to process it into LNG for exports.

The upstream part of the NFS will include five platforms, 50 wells, and gas pipelines to the onshore processing plant. The downstream component of the project will involve delivering two 8 Mtpa liquefaction.

The native carbon dioxide generated from the natural gas production will be captured and then sequestered, in a step to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions intensity. The processing plant will be connected to Qatar’s electrical grid.
