Technip wins design job for Iraq natural gas site

JV with China HuanQiu will also prepare EPC package by end of 2014

The project is aimed at using more of Iraq's natural gas rather than flaring it off.
The project is aimed at using more of Iraq's natural gas rather than flaring it off.

Technip has announced that its joint venture with China HuanQiu Contracting & Engineering (HQC), has been awarded a Front End Engineering & Design contract for the Ar Ratawi Natural Gas Liquids train1 project at North Rumaila in Iraq's Basra Province.

The French firm said the project is the first of new greenfield gas processing facilities that will stop wasteful gas flaring in the country and help it to make more use of its energy resources.

It is being developed by Basra Gas Company, which is a partnership between the state-owned Iraq South Gas Company (which has a 51% stake), Shell (44%) and Mitsubishi (5%).

The deal covers the basic engineering design of the natural gas liquid processing units, and preparation of the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) package to build them.

Technip's operating centre in Abu Dhabi will complete the work, which is set to be finished by the end of the year.

Technip Middle East president Vaseem Khan said: "This award reflects Technip’s strengthened position in the Middle-East market, following several previous awards. We are proud to bring our specific technological edge and licensed innovative solutions to the downstream industry, while leveraging our 30 years' presence in the region.”
