TGE signs EPC contract with Flogas for Avonmouth project

Flogas are a leading supplier of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Propane and Butane to industrial and household consumers across the UK. The Avonmouth Liquefied Gas Storage site was originally designed and built as a bulk LNG production and storage facility to ensure security of supply with peak shaving capability to the UK’s natural gas national grid.

TGE will now convert the plant from an LNG facility to an LPG facility where LPG will be stored in the existing atmospheric storage tanks. The upgrade conversion works include a new buffer storage, send-out and transfer system, additional road tanker loading and off-loading facilities, ship off-loading facilities and all associated equipment and utility systems.

Having been engaged to deliver the Process along with FEED studies during the project development, TGE are delighted that the relationship with Flogas will now continue into the EPC execution phase. The project is scheduled for takeover into full commercial operations by May 2022.

With this project, TGE reinforces their presence in the UK market together with the close cooperation with Flogas an important UK energy provider. “This new contract is a further milestone in respect of our efficient business development process" CEO Thomas Wehrheim said.
