(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Qatar Petroleum (QP) and UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, have signed a joint research agreement on "process optimisation of CO2 and sulphur components removal from natural gases.



The agreement was signed at QP headquarters by The Minister of Energy and Industry and chairman of QP, H E Dr Mohamed bin Saleh Al Sada and Dr Rajeev Gautam, President and CEO of UOP



The primary aim of the research is for the treated natural gases to be more efficiently utilised in further processing operations such as in transporting natural gas in pipelines, in the production of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), natural gas liquids (NGL), liquefied natural gas (LNG), gas-to-liquids (GTL) products, and in associated/non-associated gas cleanup upstream petrochemical/fertilizer manufacturing plants



Dr Al Sada said: "Qatar is constantly working to facilitate the optimum development of its hydrocarbon resources, and this agreement is another step in that direction. "Developing more efficient technologies to remove contaminants from natural gas will help boost Qatar's reputation as a safe, reliable supplier of natural gas as well as high-quality products.



"Global natural gas demand is growing rapidly and LNG/LPG/NGL/GTL production is critical to meeting the needs of regions not served by pipelines and to enable global trade," said Dr Gautam. "Qatar Petroleum is a recognised leader in the production of LNG/NGL for world markets, and we look forward to extending our long-standing partnership to develop technology in these important fields."




Honeywell's UOP, on the other hand, is a leader in natural gas treating technologies, which currently are used in QP's LNG and gas processing facilities.



UOP's separation technology and equipment remove contaminants such as water, carbon dioxide and sulfphur compounds (hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans, etc) from natural gas in order to meet rigorous product specifications and requirements for downstream transmission and liquefaction equipment.



Honeywell's UOP Gas Processing and Hydrogen business unit offers technology, equipment and materials to treat and process natural gas, as well as to purify the hydrogen used in refineries. Its gas technologies extract water, mercury, sulphur compounds, carbon dioxide and other contaminants from raw natural gas. UOP also offers technologies that are widely implemented for LNG/LPG/ NGL production and for associated/non-associated gas cleanup upstream petrochemical & manufacturing plants.
