Siemens Energy was appointed to supply centrifugal compressor systems for Saudi Aramco’s Hawiyah Unayzah Gas Reservoir Storage (HUGRS) project. The plant comprises a gas injection facility with a capacity of 1,500 million standard cubic feet per day and a withdrawal facility capable of processing up to 2,000 MMSCFD of gas.
Siemens Energy gets the order from Samsung Engineering, who was awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the whole project earlier this year.
The project, situated 260 kilometers east of Saudi Arabia’s capital, Riyadh, comprises a plant that will take surplus pipelines gas in the winter months and inject it into an existing depleted field. From here, it can be withdrawn when needed to meet high summer demand. Siemens Energy will provide the required 20 compression trains. Ten trains will be built for the injection portion of the plant, and another 10 trains will be used for the withdrawal portion of the plant.
“We have a track record of fastest delivery times and a dedicated local workforce to yield these units in our Dammam facility in line with our commitment to Saudi Aramco’s In-Kingdom Total Value Add program,” said Arja Talakar, senior vice president, Industrial Applications Products for Siemens Energy. This order builds on Siemens’ recent successful provide of compressor trains for other Saudi Aramco projects, allow for the new Fadhill gas plant and the Hawiyah gas expansion project.
“Siemens Energy is honored to get this order, which we believe is due to our proved ability to deliver better compressor performance and flawless performance, which ultimately results in lower life cycle costs,” added Patrice Laporte, Head of North America Industrial Applications Products.
