Al-Zour LNG Import Terminal

Al-Zour LNG Import Terminal

The Al-Zour LNG Import Terminal is the world’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal, located 90 kilometers southeast of Kuwait’s capital. The project included the construction of a re-gasification facility, eight LNG storage tanks with a capacity of 225,000m³ each, marine facilities including two marine jetties, and berthing facilities for loading, and other components such as 14 HP pumps, boil-off gas (BOG) and flare facilities.

The facility was expected to produce approximately 22 million metric tonnes (MMT) of natural gas a year and would have a storage capacity of 1.8 million m³ of LNG. The liquefaction capacity of the terminal would be 30 billion cubic metres a day (bcm/d).

Dextra supplied 202 tons of grade 700 marine tie bars and 166 tons of wailing beams for the construction of marine facilities of this project. Tie bars were used as anchors between sheet piles or concrete walls.

The import terminal was completed in November 2021 and it reached full operations in February 2022. The LNG terminal is providing the Middle East country with a stable gas network in the long run, allowing it to respond to the rising call for energy diversification and sustainable energy.
