Other Information

  • The main process elements are the following:
    • (i) onshore receiving facility, where the natural gas stream will be separated into gas, hydrocarbon condensate, and water, and which will serve both LNG trains;
    • (ii) gas purification facilities, comprising an acid gas removal unit, which removes CO2, a dehydration unit, and a mercury removal unit, which are required to avoid freezing problems and aluminium attack on the main cryogenic heat exchanger;
    • (iii) gas liquefaction facilities, which remove heavier components of the produced gas and liquefy the remaining gas. Each train includes a liquefaction unit and a fractionation unit. A condensate stabilization unit will serve both LNG trains.
  • LNG from the liquefaction unit is stored at near-atmospheric pressure in large storage tanks. For the initial two train development, two tanks will be installed, each with 5 approximately 170,000 m3 capacity.
  • Condensate, including product from the onshore receiving facility and the fractionation plant, after passing through the stabilization unit, is stored in a 20,000 m3 condensate tank.
