UOP LLC, a Honeywell (NYSE: HON) company, announced today that it has been selected by Kuwait Energy Company and its partners to condition natural gas to meet pipeline specifications, and to recover valuable natural gas liquids (NGLs) at the SIBA gas field in southern Iraq’s Basra Governorate.

Kuwait Energy Company will use UOP modular equipment to process 110 million standard cubic feet per day of natural gas in two parallel processing trains, which will begin production in 2015. The modular design and construction of UOP equipment speeds construction, allowing the equipment to enter service up to 11 months faster than alternative approaches, while ensuring superior quality control. Modular solutions are particularly efficient for remote locations.

“This project demonstrates that UOP’s pre-fabricated modular equipment is a solution for monetizing gas quickly, particularly in challenging conditions,” said Rebecca Liebert, senior vice president and general manager of UOP’s Gas Processing and Hydrogen business unit. “UOP modular equipment is designed to allow Kuwait Energy Company to reduce field construction time, enabling the company to begin processing gas and earning revenue faster than with traditional field-built units while also lowering its capital and operating costs.”

The UOP solution for this project includes supply and installation of UOP acid gas removal units, UOP Callidus thermal oxidizers, mechanical refrigeration, condensate stabilization and water treatment.
