Yokogawa Nabs Yamal LNG Contract

Yokogawa Electric Corporation said that its subsidiary Yokogawa Europe Solutions has been awarded a contract by Yamgaz, a consortium of Technip and JGC Corporation, to supply integrated control and safety systems (ICSS) for the Yamal LNG project to build a liquefied natural gas plant and other facilities at Sabetta on Russia’s Yamal Peninsula.

The Yamal LNG project is one of Russia’s largest resource projects and is being undertaken by JSC Yamal LNG, which is jointly owned by Novatek (80%), Russia’s largest independent oil and gas company, and Total (20%), a major French energy company. As part of this project, a major integrated complex for the liquefaction of natural gas will be built that will have a design production capacity of 16.5 million tons per annum. The three process trains that will make up this complex will have an annual production output of 5.5 million tons each, and are planned to be commissioned in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

For this project, Yokogawa will supply CENTUM® VP integrated production control systems, ProSafe®-RS safety instrumented systems, Exaquantum™ plant information management systems, PRM® integrated device management packages for the monitoring and diagnosis of plant equipment, analytical systems, analyzer shelters, and operator training systems. Yokogawa will be responsible for delivery, engineering, installation, commissioning, and operator training. It is estimated that this will be Yokogawa’s largest order ever for a natural gas project in Russia.

Russia holds one of the world’s largest natural gas reserves and is particularly active in the LNG field, with many projects underway. It is believed that there are many undeveloped natural gas fields on the Yamal Peninsula and that the amount of LNG produced there will increase. Yokogawa ‘s systems are in use at 47 gas liquefaction plants and 42 LNG receiving terminals around the world, and are used by or are on order for a total of 54 LNG carriers.
