Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) has awarded international infrastructure engineering company Black & Veatch a contract for its licensed natural gas processing technology and related services to be used in the Jurassic field
Developing the Jurassic field is central to Kuwait's strategy to increase gas production and meet its aggressive gas production target for 2030. In its first project for KOC, Black & Veatch will provide sulphur recovery units and acid gas removal units to Jurassic Gas Facility 1, which is planned to produce about half of the Jurassic field's output.
Thomas Christensen, Black & Veatch's managing director, Oil & Gas, Middle East and North Africa, said, “We were able to offer Kuwait Oil Company a total natural gas processing solution, delivered by a single source, bringing together multiple technologies.”
The total technology solution encompasses two acid gas removal trains designed for feed gas flow and three parallel identical sulphur recovery trains, with dedicated tail gas treatment units for each sulphur train.
Black & Veatch is involved in every step of the assets’ lifecycle, from front-end engineering design to operation and maintenance support. The company is responsible for the basic engineering design package and is bringing together various technologies to meet the performance requirements.
