Petronas Cargali selects UOP’s MemGuard™ and Separex™ from Honeywell
Honeywell UOP today announced that PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd, a subsidiary of PETRONAS, will use UOP’s modular natural gas processing technology in the development of a 900 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) offshore gas purification plant in the Kasawari gas field located in the South China Sea, offshore Sarawak in Malaysia. The Kasawari gas field was discovered by PETRONAS in 2011.
UOP’s acid gas removal technology, which includes UOP’s MemGuard™ and Separex™ technologies and adsorbents to remove contaminants such as carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and mercury from natural gas, will be used at the facility. Once built, it will rank among the largest offshore gas treatment systems in the world. These systems are ideal for remote locations and offshore locations, reducing costs with faster delivery and start-up and with increased efficiency in the bulk removal of contaminants.
“With its smaller footprint, weight and increased reliability and efficiency in removing contaminants, our modular Separex technology is especially suited to process natural gas for production and power generation in remote locations such as the Kasawari offshore field,” said Michael Cleveland, Vice President and General Manager of UOP’s Gas Processing business. “This frees up valuable space within the subsea pipelines that bring the gas from offshore to onshore and reduce moving parts which require minimum operator intervention.”
The gas processed at Kasawari will be further processed and liquefied at the existing Malaysia LNG complex (MLNG), to be exported globally for power generation. The elements of the membrane system will be produced in UOP’s Separex Membrane Manufacturing center in Penang, Malaysia.
UOP Separex membrane systems contain spiral wound membrane elements that remove acid gas and vapour phase water from natural gas streams. Decades of operation in natural gas service demonstrate that Separex membranes are the most durable type of membrane in the industry. To date, more than 130 Separex systems have been installed worldwide.
