ENPPI and Belayim Petroleum Company have contracted Dutch company, Frames, to design and supply eight sour gas filter coalescers and eight shell and tube heat exchangers to be installed at the El-Gamil Plant which is connected with the ‘super giant’ natural gas field Zohr in Egypt, Offshore Magazine reported.
Operator Eni, which discovered Zohr in 2015, aims to start production at the end of 2017. The field will produce 2.6bcf/d by 2019, an equivalent to 40% of Egypt’s current gas production.
In order to meet the production mandate, the filter coalescers and heat exchangers must be supplied within 12-months. Frames was able to expedite the process partly due to the company’s cooperation with Egyptian agent Business Group for Investment. Frames Separation Technologies’ Sales Engineer, Joris Vink, said: “Due to our strongest assets; one on one contact, know-how, teamwork, and close corporation with our Egyptian agent Business Group for Investment (BGI), we were able to provide ENPPI and Petrobel with a technically and commercially attractive offer. It took only 3 months from the request for quotation to the order award,” according to Frames Group website.
