Equinor and Norwegian operator Gassco announced Thursday Wood will built and install an upgrade at the Kollsnes gas processing plant, Kallanish Energy reports.
The so-called MEG (mono-ethylene glycol) Upgrade project was awarded to Wood. The engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract is estimated at NOK 400 million ($44.08 million).
Wood will upgrade the MEG regeneration handling capacity at the Kollsness plant, where Equinor is the technical service provider and Gassco the operator. Scope of work includes the installation of a MEG train, a chiller package and a MEG export pump. Installation is planned for 2022/23.
“Kollsnes is an important plant in the gas value chain, and the project will contribute to maintain high gas volumes and regularity on the plant in a long-term perspective,” said Gassco CEO Frode Leversund.
“This project will strengthen the security of supply to Europe, as well as give positive ripple effects to the region,” he added.
The processing plant at Kollsnes in Øygarden to the west of Bergen processes the gas from the Troll, Kvitebjørn, Visund and Fram fields. The plant can process up to 144.5 million cubic metres of natural gas per day.
