Yemen : Two training courses

Published February 2010

(The News N° 17 - February 2010)

The French National Water Training Center (”FNWTC”) carried out two training courses in Yemen on the building site of a gas terminal.
They were ordered by the Nantes Water Company for the personnel of YLNG (Yemen Liquefied Natural Gas) following the supply of a small wastewater treatment plant with rotating biological contactor.
The courses in English aimed at training the future operators on the operation and maintenance of this small treatment unit (400 population equivalents) which will treat domestic wastewater before its discharge into the sea. The industrial effluents will be treated by several physico-chemical plants.
Each group was composed of about fifteen agents, most of them Yemenites technicians or engineers in various fields and pertaining to YLNG, future operator of the complex. Balhaf, a very small fishermen’s village, is located on the southern coast at about 150km west of Al Mukalla on the Gulf of Aden.
A pipeline of 320km long will convey methane gas to the terminal where it will be liquefied and stored before loading on LNG tankers. The first ship loadings are planned for the beginning of 2010.
