Abqaiq NGL

Natural gas liquids (NGL) facilities at Abqaiq consist of eight compression trains receiving feed gas from the spheroids and stabilizer columns.

The received feed gas is compressed in compression trains and passed to the NGL stripper columns and de-ethanizer column to optimize NGL production.

The effluent of the columns consists of two main streams: the overhead light gases and NGL. The light gases are sent to gas plants outside Abqaiq for further processing, while the NGL is sent to Ras Tanura for further fractionation.
