Saudi Aramco has announced that the construction of the Midyan gas plant is progressing well with 86 per cent of the work completed and it is now scheduled to go into full operation by the end of this year.

The contract had been awarded to Larsen & Toubro (L&T) Arabia in 2013 for building key facilities including a gas processing plant at the Midyan gas field. Once gas from Midyan reaches the Al Muwaylih power plant, it will produce 570 MW of power, including 50 MW that will be produced by the Saudi Electricity Company’s (SEC) high-efficiency solar thermal power station.

Midyan Gas Plant is designed to produce and process 75 million standard cu ft per day of non-associated gas and 4,500 barrels per day of condensates. The plant will supply the products to a high-efficiency power plant near Duba. The power plant will receive the largest amount of gas and the remaining will be saved for future projects in the area such as an industrial zone.

It is the first turnkey project entailing design and build of the plant completely in the country in accordance with Saudi Aramco specifications and standards with a contractor from the kingdom.
