Coalition targets zero flaring at Egyptian LNG export terminal


Egyptian LNG has awarded a feasibility study contract to a Bechtel-led Coalition for Decarbonisation which will assess implementation of a zero-flaring system at its export terminal (ELNG) in Idku, east of Alexandria.

The feasibility study will assess options for total routine flaring recovery through modifications to the existing flare and compression systems at the ELNG facility, reducing methane emissions. The fast-tracked Feasibility Study aims to move into Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) phase by early 2023.

HE Tarek El-Molla, Egyptian Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, hosted the signing ceremony during the Decarbonisation Day events at COP 27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
