Yokogawa Electric Corporation has announced that its subsidiary Yokogawa Europe Solutions B.V. has been awarded a contract by Yamgaz, a consortium of Technip and JGC Corporation, to supply integrated control and safety systems (ICSS) for the Yamal LNG Project to build a liquefied natural gas plant and other facilities at Sabetta on Russia’s Yamal Peninsula, northwest Siberia.
The Yamal LNG Project is one of Russia's largest resource projects and is being undertaken by JSC Yamal LNG, which is jointly owned by Russia’s largest independent oil and gas company, Novatek (80%), and major French player, Total (20%).
As part of this project, a major integrated complex for the liquefaction of natural gas will be built that will have a design production capacity of 16.5 million tpa. The three process trains that will make up this complex will have an annual production output of 5.5 million t each, and are planned to be commissioned in 2016, 2017, and 2018 respectively.
For this project, Yokogawa will supply CENTUM® VP integrated production control systems, ProSafe®-RS safety instrumented systems, Exaquantum™ plant information management systems, PRM® integrated device management packages for the monitoring and diagnosis of plant equipment, analytical systems, analyzer shelters, and operator training systems.
Yokogawa will be responsible for delivery, engineering, installation, commissioning, and operator training. It is estimated that this will be the company’s largest order ever for a natural gas project in Russia.
