Qatar to supply Kuwait with 3M tons of LNG a year

State-run Qatar Petroleum (QP) said it had signed a 15-year agreement to supply Kuwait with up to 3 million tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per year.

Deliveries to Kuwait’s al-Zour port will begin in 2022 to help meet Kuwait’s growing energy needs, particularly in the power generation sector, QP said in a joint statement with Kuwait Petroleum Corp (KPC).

Qatar, the world’s top supplier of LNG, plans to boost its production of LNG to 126 million tons a year (mtpa) by 2027.

The deal would help Kuwait to meet its requirement for cleaner sources of energy and would contribute to reducing emissions and improving local air quality, Kuwait’s oil minister Khaled al-Fadhel said in the statement.

“Whilst KPC is working towards increasing local natural gas production, there remains a pressing need to secure imports of natural gas supplies,” Fadhel said.

Kuwait has been boosting its reliance on imported gas to meet power demand, especially in summer when consumption by air conditioning systems rises sharply, but it is also focusing on ramping up gas production as part of its 2040 growth strategy.

Corrosion Control for Gas Treating Amines: Technology Leads to Increased Amine Unit Efficiency

Register Now

Accelerated basin drilling activities combined with increased fugitive gas emission capture technologies have increased trace oxygen levels in midstream natural gas. Oxygen present in concentrations even as low 30-50 ppm will cause costly corrosion-related problems in plant operations and processing equipment. One area in the plant most affected by oxygen is the amine unit. Oxygen will degrade MDEA-blended amines to corrosive amino acids and heat-stable amine salts.

Learn how a new technology from BASF combined with innovation from Nalco Water can increase amine efficiency and reduce costs associated with corrosion. This new technology will inhibit the degradation of amines from oxygen attack and control corrosion in process gas, while stabilizing the amine from degradation into bicine and other heat-stable amine salts. Together with Nalco Water’s real-time amine corrosion control program, have been proven to both mitigate oxygen degradation of amine and reduce the overall corrosivity of amine units.
