FAJR Company Facilities
1. Jordanian Gas Transmission Grid Facilities
The Grid consists of a 36-inch pipeline that extends for 500 km from the southern to the northern region with a maximum capacity of ten billion cubic meter annually in addition to Natural Gas Compression Station in Aqaba with developed control system.
- Aqaba Compression Station
The compression Station is located at the gas receipt and delivery point in the city of Aqaba; where it contains four gas compressors for raising gas grid pressure in order to maintain pressures within the contractual limits for fulfilling clients’ needs of natural gas.
- Tie-in Site between FSRU Facilities & Jordanian Gas Transmission Grid:
In order to vary external natural gas resources while fulfilling natural gas supplies to the electric power plants and industries; the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources established the liquefied natural gas port in Aqaba under the patronage of his Majesty King Abdullah II on July 30th, 2015. Fajr Company started establishing the necessary facilities and establishments for the Tie-in Site between FSRU Facilities in Aqaba with the Jordanian gas Transmission grid facilities to receive the regasification natural gas, imported by NEPCO and transported to the electric power plants through the Jordanian natural gas grid. FSRU capacity at Aqaba port is estimated of around 490 MCF per day, which may raise to 715 MCF per day when operating the reserve pump for limited periods of the year.
- Valve rooms
There are valve rooms distributed all along the natural gas grid path; whereas each room contains a main cut-off valve for protecting the pipeline and isolating any part thereof in emergency cases.
- Metering Stations (electric power generation plants / industries / exportation):
Fajr Company has a number of Natural gas filtering and measuring stations that deliver natural gas to customers extending all along the path of the natural gas transmission grid, which use the most updated international techniques and schemes for measuring quantities and analyzing natural gas components.
2. Supervisory & Control System Infrastructure (SCADA)
- Control Centers
Gas transmission grid inside the Jordanian borders is remotely controlled through the main and branch monitoring and control centers in the southern, central and northern regions of the Kingdom; whereas they control suspending and operating gas grid schemes, opening and closing valves, controlling all operational data such as gas pressure, temperature and gas flow averages, while monitoring leakage detection schemes.
3. Al-Qastal Complex
Complex contains the following facilities:
- Warehouse for the Jordanian natural gas grid project equipment.
- Warehouse for electronic devices where the temperature is controlled.
- Wide open areas for storing pipelines and concrete slabs.
- Workshops for maintenance purposes.
4. Photovoltaic System Electric Power Generation station (Al-Huseinya station )
Company adopted the idea of establishing photovoltaic power station in Ma’an in year 2017 for covering the costs of electric power loads in the southern region. Importance of this project emanates from maintaining environment, since it is a sustainable renewable energy, while reducing costs, economizing energy consumption and reducing carbon emissions.
