Yokogawa Electric Corp.’s subsidiary Yokogawa Europe Solutions B.V. has been awarded a contract to supply integrated control and safety systems for the liquified natural gas (LNG) project in Yamal, which will 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, Russia's largest independent oil and gas company, and Total, a major French energy company. As part of this project, a major integrated complex for the liquefaction of natural gas is planned. The complex will have a design production capacity of 16.5 million tons per year. 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, respectively.
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.
