ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has been awarded a $216 million contract to deliver a gas treatment plant in Tunisia. This Plant is expected to start production by October 2016.
ABB is responsible for the delivery of gas separation and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) extraction units. It will also provide key automation, communications and power components, including the control system and transformers and switchgear for the electrification of the plant.
The GTP will separate commercial natural gas from heavier hydrocarbons, which will then be fractionated to produce propane, butane and LPG used in many industrial, commercial and manufacturing applications. The plant will have a design capacity of 2.7 million standard cubic meters per day.
The overall project includes central processing facilities at the Nawara well site, a 370 km pipeline and a gas treatment plant in the Ghannouch industrial district near the coastal city of Gabès Governorate, Tunisia.
