Moveyeid Gas Storage Surface Facility Project Phase 2
The SAJAA gas plant is one of the largest production facilities in Sharjah, hence an important source of revenue for the Emirate. It provides a large percentage of fuel gas for the local power stations in Sharjah and is central to the gas distribution network for Sharjah and the northern emirates.
The Moveyeid Gas Storage Surface Facility Project Phase II is currently one of ALUCOR’s biggest projects, and involves the engineering and construction of a new gas storage facility. Alucor’s scope of work includes the installation and commissioning of new high-pressure compressors, pigging stations, metering skids, flow-lines and trunk-lines of approximately seven kilometers.
Faced with a tight schedule and extreme temperatures, in addition to the restrictions caused by the pandemic, more than 350 ALUCOR employees are presently executing the project, maintaining the highest safety and quality standards with 0 lost time incidents.
The project aims to increase gas storage during the winter to satisfy the peak demand during the summer and improve plant efficiency. It will also function as a strategic reserve to respond to unexpected operational or market issues.
