LNG Import & Re-gasification Terminal Project - Al Zour
The project is about Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract to build an onshore Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) import and re-gasification terminal. It will be located near the site of the $14 billion New Refinery Project (NRP) at Al-Zour in Kuwait. Al-Zour LNG terminal will be located in the Al-Zour region, approximately 90km south of the Kuwaits capital, Kuwait City, near the border with Saudi Arabia. The conceptual and feasibility studies to select the suitable technology and location for the Al-Zour LNG import terminal were conducted by Foster Wheeler, along with a local partner in 2014. The client has been importing LNG at a floating storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) at the Ahmadi gas port, near Mina al-Ahmadi refinery, since late 2009. It hopes to begin operations at the new terminal in 2020, importing 1.5 billion cubic feet a day (cf/d) of gas. The facility includes the construction of a re-gasification facility, eight liquefied natural gas storage tanks with a capacity of 225,000 cubic meters each, marine facilities including two marine jetties and berthing facilities for loading. The project will also include other components such as 14 HP pumps, boil-off gas (BOG) and flare facilities. An US engineering firm has been awarded a contract to carry out the pre-front-end engineering and design (pre-FEED) and FEED for this scheme. Once fully-operational, the facility is expected to produce approximately 22 million metric tonnes (MMT) of natural gas a year and will have a storage capacity of 1.8 million m³ of LNG. The liquefaction capacity of the terminal will be 30 billion cubic metres a day (bcm/d).
