Fifth Gas Train
This strategic project on the regional level, is part of KPC strategy in expanding Kuwait capacity in the production and processing of gas to fulfill the local needs. After completion, KNPC total gas processing capability will be 3.263 billion SCFPD.
Aims of the Project
Mainly to boost Kuwait capabilities in processing the expected future increase of non-associated gas from oil fields and from KNPC refineries. The produced light Methane will be used in power stations, Propane & Butane in domestic use and supply olefins factories with Ethane. Propane, Butane and Pentane will also be exported.
Contract value KD 433 million.
Fifth Gas Train will produce 805 mmscfpd of gas and 106,000 bpd of condensate.
Expected to be commissioned in second half of 2019.
New facilities include, sour water stripper, propane refrigeration unit, product treatment unit, fractionation column, and utilities.
The project will fulfill Kuwait’s needs of clean fuels and will reduce imports of gas
Naturally, LPG and LNG are widely considered as a major source of clean energy. They cause minimum impact on environment, especially in replacing the heavy fuel and crude oil used in power stations. They are sulfur-free and emissions are less damaging to ozone.
