MEOG: EPC contract awarded for Qatar’s NFS

A consortium of engineers has been awarded a $10bn engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract from QatarEnergy for two trains on the 16mn tonne per year (tpy) North Field South (NFS) LNG project.

The French-based Technip Energies and Greek-listed Consolidated Contractors Co. (CCC) signed an agreement with QatarEnergy in Doha covering two 8mn tpy LNG trains with associated facilities for gas treatment and NGL recovery, as well as helium extraction and refining within Ras Laffan Industrial City.

The project will include carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) facilities, some operations that will be powered by solar energy, and a jetty boil-off gas recovery system, which will help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

NFS, together with North Field East (NFE), will raise Qatar’s liquefaction capacity from the current level of 77mn tpy to 126mn tpy by 2027. The NFE development comprises the drilling of 80 wells, installation of eight offshore platforms, gas pipelines and four 8mn tpy LNG trains.

The EPC agreement was signed by Qatari Energy Minister and president and CEO of QatarEnergy HE Saad bin Sherida Al Kaabi, president of Technip Energies Arnaud Pieton and Oussama El Jerbi, managing director of CCC’s Qatar branch.
