SMM to Expand REN Terminal

SMM concluded a project with a value of 19 million euros at the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) REN Terminal, in Sines.

The Terminal expansion foresaw a storage capacity increase, with the erection of one cryogenic tank for LNG, with a capacity of 150.000 m3, as well as the send out capacity increase, with a new send out train and a new truck loading bay.

SMM was responsible for the tank mechanical erection, as well as the process piping and respective equipments, acting as a subcontractor to TGE which, in a partnership with SOMAGUE, was responsible for the EPC (Engineering Procurement & Construction) of the Terminal.

SMM developed its works during 32 months, and the conclusion took place one month ahead of schedule

The works were fully performed by Portuguese engineers, technicians and direct manpower reaching a peak of 150 workers.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
