Japan’s Chiyoda working on Qatar’s giant gas field

Japan’s Chiyoda Corporation has been awarded a contract by Qatar Petroleum to carry out the Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) of the onshore facilities of the Qatar’s offshore North Field Expansion.

The facilities will produce an additional 23 million tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG, which will raise Qatar’s production from 77 to 100 mtpa, as was announced by Qatar Petroleum last July.

Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, Qatar Petroleum President & CEO, expressed great pleasure at the award, and said “The award of the front end engineering and design contract to Chiyoda Corporation, is a significant milestone in our journey to deliver the first LNG from this new project by the end of 2023.”

“The addition of 23 mtpa of LNG will not just enhance Qatar Petroleum’s position as the world’s largest LNG producer and exporter, but also its international image as a reliable and trustworthy energy provider.”

Al-Kaabi said the expansion of Qatar’s LNG production from the North Field was an important landmark in Qatar Petroleum’s strategic growth plan and objectives of becoming one of the best national oil & gas companies in the world.

“We are continuing discussions with potential international joint venture partners for this strategic project to determine an optimized arrangement with the objective of delivering maximum value to the State of Qatar and contribute to the optimal utilization of Qatar’s natural resources,” he said.

The FEED scope of work will provide the basic design for the addition of 3 x 7.8 mtpa mega-trains of LNG production with associated pre-investment to add a 4th LNG train in the future.

The onshore facilities will receive approximately 4.6 billion standard cubic feet per day of feed gas from the southern sector of Qatar’s North Field, which is the largest single non-associated gas field in the world.

The processing of the feed gas will also produce approximately 3,000 tons/day of ethane as feedstock to a petrochemical development in the State of Qatar, 185,000 barrels/day of condensate, and 8,500 tons/day of LPG for sale into world markets, in addition to approximately 12 tons per day of pure helium.
