SUEZ is expanding its activities in the Oil & Gas sector.
The Group has recently been awarded an equipment design and supply contract by energy infrastructure company Jemena, which owns and operates a diverse portfolio of energy transportation assets across the east coast of Australia, to deliver a complete gas treatment system for the Northern Gas Pipeline Project in Northern Territory.
The Northern Gas Pipeline Project involves the construction of a 622 km, 12 inch gas transmission pipeline between Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory and Mount Isa in Queensland. In order to meet the East Coast Market sales gas specifications, the Start of Line Compressor Station will be designed with the ability to treat gas from various Northern Territory sources. For this Project, SUEZ will be responsible for the design and manufacture of a complete gas treatment system including cryogenic nitrogen removal plant for the Phillip Creek Compressor Station.
The SUEZ gas treatment system incorporates innovative nitrogen removal technology not currently installed in the Australian domestic natural gas market in addition to filtration, sweetening (CO2 removal) via an amine system, dehydration using a molecular sieve and a guard-bed for the nitrogen removal unit.
Says Stéphane Boyer, SUEZ’s Industrial Solutions Managing Director:
“The acquisition of Process Group in 2014, now SUEZ Oil & Gas Systems, has reinforced our technical expertise and portfolio for the Upstream and Downstream Oil & Gas Industry. With the global skills and resources of the Suez group, we are well positioned to continue taking on the ambitious O&G projects planned within the region and elsewhere.”
