PARIS -- April 10, 2014
Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY), in partnership with China
HuanQiu Contracting & Engineering Corporation (HQC), was awarded by Basra Gas
Company (BGC*), a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for Ar Ratawi
Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) train1 project at North Rumaila in Basra Province,
The project is the first of the new greenfield associated gas processing
facilities that will significantly minimize gas flaring in Iraq and make more
energy resources available for power and domestic use– an NGL train with
nominal feed gas capacity of 530 million standard cubic feet per day. The
standalone facilities will produce liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), NGL and
condensate for domestic markets.
The scope of work covers the basic engineering design package of the NGL
process units, utilities and the submission of an engineering procurement and
construction (EPC) package.
Technip’s operating center in Abu Dhabi will execute the project, scheduled to
be completed by the end of 2014.
