Shell Awards Design Contract for $5b GTL Project to JGC

Source: 3/9/2004, Location: Middle East

Qatar Shell GTL Ltd announced that a Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract has been awarded by its affiliate Shell Global Solutions International to JGC Inc. of Japan for the onshore design of the $5 billion Gas to Liquids (GTL) project in Qatar.

The contract, which will require almost 500,000 design manhours, will further refine the design of the onshore GTL plant in preparation for the implementation phase. JGC will execute the majority of the work at the MW Kellogg office in Greenford, North West London. MW Kellogg is a joint venture company between JGC and Kellogg Brown and Root (KBR).

At the Finance and Investment in Qatar Conference today in London, Malcolm Brinded, Group Managing Director and CEO of Shell Gas & Power and Exploration and Production said “The award of this contract marks another major milestone on this ground-breaking GTL project. This challenging project will require us to work with the very best contractors in the global engineering and construction market, we are pleased to have selected JGC to further define the project”.

In October 2003, Shell and Qatar Petroleum announced that they had reached agreement on a Heads of Agreement (HOA) for the GTL project. The project includes the development of a block within Qatar’s vast offshore North Field gas field, producing 1.6 billion cubic feet-per-day of gas. In February 2004, Shell announced that they had started appraisal drilling in this block.

Shell plans to invest around $5 billion to develop the offshore gas and an onshore GTL plant that will produce 140,000 barrels per day (bpd) of GTL products (primarily naphtha and transport fuels, with a smaller quantity of normal paraffins and lubricant base oils) as well as significant quantities of associated condensate and Liquefied Petroleum Gas. The project will be developed in two phases with the first phase operational in 2009, producing around 70,000 bpd of GTL products. The second phase will be completed less than two years later.
