Amec Foster Wheeler wins Hyundai Engineering contract for GTL plant in Uzbekistan
LONDON – Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a lump sum contract by Hyundai Engineering Co. Ltd for the delivery of hydrogen plant technology and design and materials supply for a Terrace Wall steam reformer heater for Uzbekneftegaz National Holding Company’s OLTIN YO’L gas-to-liquid (GTL) plant, which is under construction in the Kashkadarya Region of Uzbekistan.
Amec Foster Wheeler’s scope of work includes the basic design engineering for the 37,100 Nm3/h hydrogen unit, the basic and detailed engineering, and procurement for the steam reformer heater, plus site advisory services. Amec Foster Wheeler is currently in the detailed engineering phase for the plant's Terrace Wall steam reformer, which is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2018.
The Terrace Wall design is a unique and fully proven global technology, part of Amec Foster Wheeler’s wider suite of innovative technologies which supports customers across the world. In addition to this contract win, in the last year Amec Foster Wheeler has announced contracts for its proprietary Terrace Wall reformer technology in Russia, Egypt and Italy.
At CERAWeek by IHS Markit, held in Houston in March, IEA Director Fatih Birol said that the world would soon see a major second wave of shale gas production from the US in response to higher energy prices and growing demand from India and China.
Mozambique and Tanzania hold an estimated 180 Tft3 and 57 Tft3 of proven natural gas reserves, respectively.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
