AMPO S.COOP POYAM VALVES AWARDED CRYOGENIC VALVES PACKAGE FOR PTTLNG
23/11/2009 - AMPO S.COOP; POYAM VALVES signed a new contract for the manufacture and supply of cryogenic ball, gate, globe and check valves for PTTLNG project in Thailand
The project is being developed by PTT LNG Company Ltd (PTTLNG), a subsidiary of PTT (Petroleum Authority of Thailand). The demand for liquid natural gas and, in turn, for new LNG ports is rising rapidly. In addition the facility is being constructed near to the Map Ta Phut industrial complex where a number of industries are setting up plants that may require natural gas feedstock.
Industries here include petrochemical, refinery, steel, fertiliser plant and plants under construction by GS E&C include Aromatics No.2 (aromatics plant) and HMC PP (Line-3) (polypropylene).
The new facility will involve the development of a deepwater port, a five-million-ton regasification (vaporiser) train with two 160,000m³ LNG storage tanks, a jetty, a boil-off gas recondensor, a send-out station and an LNG pump. The terminal is scheduled to start operating in 2011 (construction completed by June 2011).
Phase two of the project, which is already being considered, will add a further LNG tank of 160,000m³ and also a further jetty (7.5 million tons capacity). The phase three proposals could involve a further jetty and another LNG tank of 160,000m³ (ten million tons capacity)
This project enhances AMPO's position in India and shows Thailand customers confidence in AMPO valves for their strategical projects in Thailand. Now AMPO has supplied critical valves to PTTGAS, PTTEP and PTTLNG.
