BANAGAS Central Gas Processing Facility (CGPIII) Project (August 2018)

Project Background:

Tatweer Petroleum (TP) is currently operating the Awali gas field in Bahrain. The field is producing 635 MMSCFD of Associated Gas (AG), of which 285 MMSCFD is being processed in a gas plant. The 350 MMSCFD of unprocessed AG is compressed and re-injected into the reservoir for pressure maintenance.

This gas plant was built as part of an expansion at Bahrain National Gas Expansion Company (BNGEC). The new Central Gas Processing Facility (CGP-III) is capable of processing 341 - 350 MMSCFD of Associated Gas (AG) and 0 - 9 MMSCFD of Refinery Off Gas (ROG) in a new Central Gas Processing facility (CGP-III). As an addition, the facility is equipped to compress acid gas and residue gas streams to 1,500 psig.

The Gas Plant is equipped to process the Wet Gas, produces LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) and Naphtha. The EPC Contractor for the project is JGC Corporation and the Construction was awarded to MCSC.
