The state owned oil and gas company Qatar Petroleum has issued Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) tender for liquid products storage and loading facilities of the North Field Expansion (NFE) Project.
The NFE Project involves the addition of four mega LNG trains as part of Qatar Petroleum’s plans to expand the State of Qatar’s LNG production from 77 million to 110 million tons per annum by 2024.
New facilities covered under this tender include a new propane storage tank, vapor recovery compressors for propane and butane tank refrigeration, a plant condensate storage tank, a MEG storage tank and distribution system, a new liquid products export berth and liquid product lines from the main NFE plant location to the liquid products storage area.

With the volume of associated liquid products the NFE project will generate from offshore production and onshore gas processing, it was necessary to expand our existing storage and loading facilities.”
