Joint Effort to Improve the Hydrocarbon Condensate Dewatering
Process for GASCO
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., September 28, 2011 -
A consortium between Babcock Borsig Service (BBS), the project leader,
and Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL),
a leading global provider of filtration, separation and purification
solutions, has been awarded an € 19.6 Million ($26.508 million) contract
for a hydrocarbon condensate dewatering initiative in the Middle East.
The BBS/Pall consortium will carry out detailed engineering,
procurement, construction and commissioning activities (EPC) at an Abu
Dhabi Gas Industries Ltd. (GASCO) gas complex in the U.A.E.
The scope of the project is to remove water and contaminants from
hydrocarbon condensate thereby reducing the possibility of downstream
corrosion at the GASCO complex near Abu Dhabi City. Shipments and
construction will begin in March 2012. The entire project including
commissioning is scheduled to be completed by December 2012.
“Our broad range of engineered, total fluid management solutions will be
put to work for GASCO in this large-scale hydrocarbon condensate
project,” said Hussein Barazi, Director Pall Middle East. “Last year we
opened our first office in the Middle East region to provide strategic
support and enhanced service for local customers and multinational
companies. This latest agreement further solidifies our presence in the
fast-growing Middle East market.”
“BBS & Pall’s joint efforts will considerably improve the reliability of
GASCO’s process facilities to ensure that production targets will be
met,“ said Clemens Wolters, COO of Deutsche Babcock Middle East. “GASCO
requires a high-quality, efficient solution for the removal of
contaminants from its processes and we are confident the combination of
Pall’s products and BBS Management Services will improve the condensate
dewatering process. This initiative will allow GASCO plants to continue
to run at optimum efficiency levels and simultaneously improve the
quality of products to TAKREER.”
