The latest expansion of SNOC’s gas storage capacity includes two high-pressure compressor trains and associated tie-ins to its existing brownfield facilities at Sajaa.

SNOC set a 10-month schedule from award to completion and successfully completed the project ahead of schedule. The project involved efforts from SNOC’s in-house project team and the EPC contractors Enerflex Ltd and ALUCOR.

The critical project construction achievements were welding 2180 inch dia, erection of 30 tons of steel, 360 m³ of concrete, 510 m of E&I cables and a safe heavy lift of 87 tons using a 500-ton capacity crane.

The project was completed without any operational or environmental incidents and achieved a milestone of 82,000 man-hours without ‘Lost Time Incident (LTI)’.
