The project will utilize Black & Veatch’s PRICO technology, which is well-suited for the size and location of the project. JGC, a company in LNG project execution and modularization, will work closely with Black & Veatch to perform the engineering, procurement and module fabrication for the project. Kiewit, a direct hire union construction contractor with significant Pacific Northwest experience, will manage the construction of the facility.
The proposed Jordan Cove LNG terminal is located on a 400-acre, greenfield industrial site on the North Spit of lower Coos Bay. It will be the first and most advanced LNG export terminal project on the west coast of North America.
The Jordan Cove project will be the largest single, private investment in the history of southern Oregon, benefitting the region and its residents through hundreds of millions of dollars in spending and tax revenue.
The Jordan Cove LNG terminal is projected to produce a maximum of 7.8 MMtpy for export, with a majority of the LNG going to Pacific Rim countries, including Japan. It also includes approximately 320,000 cubic meters of storage capacity and deep-water marine facilities. The final investment decision is anticipated to be in 2019, with an expected in-service date of 2024.
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
