Dew Point Control Unit to tackle condensation in Abqaiq
JGC Gulf Engineering Co. Ltd. chosen for the project, which is intended to resolve liquid condensation and accumulation in the gas pipelines going to Shedgum and Berri gas plants.
Part of the new contracting strategy efforts announced by Aramco last year for the company’s oil and gas brownfield, Project Management (PM) has awarded a new contract for a Dew Point Control Unit Project at Abqaiq Plants.
The JGC Gulf Engineering Co. Ltd. was chosen for the project, which is intended to resolve liquid condensation and accumulation in the gas pipelines going to Shedgum and Berri gas plants by providing a new Dew Point Control Unit at Abqaiq NGL Plants.
This project will support the growth of the Kingdom’s petrochemical industry and drive for localization, in addition to increasing employment. The work includes upgrading the triethylene glycol dehydration system, installing a new condensate stripper column, replacing an export gas compression unit, installing a new pipeline, as well as providing infrastructure upgrades to achieve the project’s objectives.
Abdulkarim A. Al Ghamdi, Aramco’s vice president of PM, emphasized the importance of such projects as they promote localization, provide training opportunities, and encourage technology deployment and digitalization while maintaining the highest standards of safety, quality, and cost performance.
