KNCP to Complete Fourth Gas Pipeline Project
Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) is set to complete the fourth gas pipeline project next March.
Company’s Deputy Chief Executive Officer For Planning and Local Marketing Shukri Al-Mahrous.in an interview to "Alam Al-Mu'asasah" (KPC World) magazine, published by the Kuwaiti Petroleum Corporation, said the project includes building a fourth unit to treat liquefied oil gas, with a storage capacity of 805 million cubic feet of gas and 106,000 barrel per day of condensates, reports Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).
The project aims at treating gases and condensates, emanating from oil and gas fields, and turning them into liquefied gases for exporting, while separating ethane and methane gases, said Al-Mahrous..
KNPC had recently completed all engineering studies for its fifth line project to produce liquefied gas, noted Al-Mahous, adding that the company is also working on executing a project to build northern tanks for liquefied gas, which will enable the company to store and export gas-related products, KUNA reports quoting from the interview.
The new tanks will allow the KNPC to load two liquefied gas tankers at once, increasing the storage and exporting capacity for extra gas products, expected to come out of building new gas liquefying units in Al-Ahmadi refinery, he explained.
