Saudi Aramco, ACWA Power to build LNG plant and terminal

Saudi Aramco and ACWA Power signed a deal with Bangladesh to develop a 3,600-megawatt LNG-based power plant and terminal in the country.

As part of the deal, the Saudi companies will invest around $3 billion, the Bangladesh government said at a signing ceremony.

The Bangladesh prime minister's investment adviser, Salman Fazlur Rahman, said the agreement "represented one of the largest deals in Bangladesh's lucrative power sector" and reflected confidence in the country's "investment-friendly environment."

ACWA chairman Mohammad Abdullah Abunayyan said his company would make the direct investment by next year. He described the project as a "landmark" that would be the company's largest gas-to-power development and its first association with Aramco in such a project.

The plant and terminal are set to be built in either the Moheshkhali area of Cox's Bazar or the port of Payra.

Riyadh and Dhaka have long maintained close bilateral relations, with the Kingdom being the largest source of Bangladesh's vital foreign remittances.

Relations have deepened in recent years, with the two countries signing a defense agreement in February. In March, a high-powered 52-member Saudi investment delegation signed a host of agreements and MoUs worth up to $20 billion. (Reporting by Ruma Paul, Editing by Rosalba O'Brien)

To ensure employee safety, HPI companies had to quickly pivot to a remote support model with many subject matter experts (SMEs) and engineering staff working remotely supporting front line, sequestered critical operations and field operators.

What are the best practices and lessons learned from this new remote operational support model? What have been technologies and work processes that are enabling effective and efficient remote operational support? Is this the “new norm” going forward even when the impact of Covid-19 abates? If not, how will remote support of critical operations be changed?

If this topic and questions are of interest to you and your organization, please attend this special HPI webinar with a panel of leading industry customer experts who will discuss their perspectives. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions for the panelists.
