Struthers Wells, a division of Thermal Engineering International, a Babcock Power company with offices located in Houston, TX and Warren, PA, has been awarded a contract to supply a thermal reactor furnace, waste heat boiler and steam drum to Technip-Chiyoda joint venture, for Qatar Liquified Gas’ plateau maintenance project (PMP) in Ras Laffan, Qatar.
The equipment supplied by Struthers Wells is intended to assist Qatargas in maintaining production levels of its Qatar Gas-1 liquefied natural gas (LNG) project, increase the capacities of onshore processing facilities to meet additional volume and increase the rate of gas feed. The Qatar Gas-1 project consists of three trains at Ras Laffan, and has a combined production capability of ten million tons per year. The thermal reactor furnace and waste heat boiler will be shipped as a single unit, and the steam drum will be field attached to the waste heat boiler to aid the efficiency of field construction.
“We are pleased to be working with Technip-Chiyoda to provide solutions that will contribute to the planned increased LNG output for Qatargas,” stated Ken Murakoshi, senior vice president and general manager of Struthers Wells.
