The project is located in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Region’s Gydan Peninsula, Russia, and has an expected production capacity of 19.8 million tpy. The contracts represent the latest collaboration between Novatek and CCC, which have previously worked together on turbomachinery optimisation and standardisation for the Yamal LNG project.
Under the terms of these latest contracts, CCC will oversee the turbomachinery controls and optimisation of all three 6.6 million tpy LNG trains’ centrifugal compressors and expanders. In addition to spearheading anti-surge, performance, quench and other advanced controls, CCC will also provide an emulator for use during the plant simulation and its eventual OTS. According to the statement, the company will leverage specialised local and global teams, and will collaborate with the field’s leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), in order to execute and deliver state-of-the-art control algorithms.
CCC Director of Global Projects, Osama Abou Shabab, said: “These contracts recognise CCC's performance on the Yamal LNG project and allow us to continue strengthening our partnership with Novatek.
“We’re proud that Novatek has entrusted our global team to control all critical and non-critical machines in its hallmark Arctic LNG 2 project. CCC’s field-tested, proven control techniques and algorithms will maintain and improve the project’s targeted RAM.”
The Arctic LNG 2 project includes the construction of three 6.6 million tpy LNG trains, using gravity-based structure (GBS) platforms. The project is based on the hydrocarbon resources of the Utrenneye field. As of 31 December 2018, the Utrenneye field’s 2P reserves under PRMS totalled 1,138 billion m3 of natural gas and 57 million t of liquids. Under the Russian classification, reserves totalled 1,978 billion m3 of natural gas and 105 million t of liquids.
Project participants include NOVATEK (60%), Total (10%), CNPC (10%), CNOOC Ltd (10%) and the Japan Arctic LNG consortium of Mitsui & Co and JOGMEC (10%). OOO Arctic LNG 2 owns an LNG export license.
