JAPEX to participate in the Vietnam LNG terminal project
JAPEX will participate in a project to construct a LNG terminal in the northern part of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. On December 28, 2021, JAPEX signed a share purchase agreement with ITECO JSC to promote the project, and will further proceed with the share acquisition procedures.
The project involves the construction of an LNG Terminal in the Nam Dinh Vu Industrial Park in Hai Phong City, Vietnam, and procurement, storage, and supply of LNG. This project, including the Northern Vietnam LNG Terminal, was approved by the government to be added to the Gas Industry Development Master Plan on February 11, 2020.
As the initial development, the construction of a 50,000 m3 LNG storage tank and associated jetty facilities capable of handling a throughput volume of up to 650,000 metric tpy of LNG is planned, and we are currently working to make a FID expected in the second half of this year. An additional LNG storage tank of 30,000 m3 is planned for the latter half of the 2020s as the expansion development.
The facilities to be constructed in the project are planned to commence commercial operation in 2025. In alignment with the project, ITECO JSC is currently moving forward with discussions about LNG procurement as well as its offtake and distribution.
Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants
Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
