Emerson Process Management has announced that it provided automation and engineering services for a Qatargas’ jetty boil-off gas (JBOG) recovery facility. This facility is expected to recover more than 600 000 tpy of LNG.
The facility is designed to recover the gas flared during LNG loading at the six LNG berths in Ras Laffan Port. The gas is compressed and sent to the Qatargas and RasGas LNG production facilities for use as fuel or as LNG.
Emerson managed key elements of the project including automation engineering, configuration, startup, training, commissioning support.
Emerson’s automation solution for the project included the DeltaV™ distributed control system to control and monitor operations, as well as the company’s Fisher® control valves and Rosemount® measurement instruments.
Alvinne Rex Abaricia, Emerson’s Senior Programme Manager for Qatargas, said: “The Emerson team welcomed this opportunity to help Qatargas execute the project safely, reliably and efficiently […] We were able to apply flexible approaches to increase efficiency, such as testing hardware and software in parallel, and brought in dozens of experts from our own organisation as well as other suppliers to manage interfaces between existing and new systems.
