Orbital UK awarded contracts to enhance fuel gas metering & compressor efficiency on UK gas transmission network
HOUSTON – Orbital Gas Systems Ltd (“Orbital UK”) has been awarded four contracts totalling approximately $4.58 million (£3.3 million) by a Tier 1 Engineering, Procurement and Construction firm in the UK.
The four-contract award was secured following many months of technical and commercial engagement that enabled the client to attain significant value from Orbital UK’s world class in-house capabilities, including integrating multiple packages and reducing client project delivery, technical and commercial risks.
The overall scope-of-works is for eight off-skids, including Filtration, Flow Control, Fiscal Metering, Supervisory PLC Metering, Gas Quality Measurement, Electric Heat Exchangers-Control and Specialist Lube Oil to Fuel Gas Heat Exchangers providing pre-heated natural gas to the solar gas turbines driving combustion efficiency.
Orbital UK will deliver solutions that include multiple high-pressure temperature measurements using its proprietary VE Technology® Thermowells together with its GasPT® ‘Integrated Calorific Value Determination’ analyzers to ensure minimal overall response times while also eliminating sample blending and enhancing safety, thereby resulting in unrivalled energy measurement.
The environmental impact of the awards is also significantly reduced with a reduction in construction and operational activities to install and operate the GasPT analyzers.
Paul White, president, Orbital UK, stated, “The award of this project from such a large and well-respected Tier 1 contractor after a months-long competitive bidding process that included presentations, negotiations and due diligence, confirms Orbital UK’s ability to deliver the highest quality integration services together with its unique and proprietary VE and GasPT technologies that are simply unavailable from other sources.
“I am proud of the entire Orbital UK group for the teamwork demonstrated in securing this exciting project. We look forward to providing the world-class service, dependability, engineering and unique solutions that have become the hallmarks of Orbital UK,” concluded White.
William Clough, president and CEO, CUI Global, added, “These awards for a milestone project from this caliber of customer is a testament to Orbital UK, Paul, and his entire team, especially given the level of competition they faced from other industry participants. This project further underscores Orbital UK’s capabilities and the disruptive technological nature of our GasPT and VE technologies in the marketplace.”
As discussed in the HPI Market Data 2019 report, published in November by Gas Processing & LNG’s sister publication, Hydrocarbon Processing, rising propane and ethane supplies in the US have been enabled by greater production of shale gas.
Industry Trends: Norway targets global LNG market
Norway aims to become a leading player in the global LNG market during the next several years through the establishment of new, large-scale LNG terminals.
Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
