Area Transmission Facility Optimization Study

. Determine whether of not the Discharge header of GPP5/6 and GPP 1-4 should be linked. Subject to the final determination of the range of delivery pressures et GPP 5/6, the suction of the GPP 516 sales gas compressors should be lied-in, by means of a control valve, to a low pressure pipeline that would connect the Kg. Tok Aron site with the suction of the Kertih A and B Compressor station. The discharge headers of GPP 5/6 should be linked by moans of a high pressure sales gas pipeline. + Determine whether or not a common low pressure header should be installed to serve customers in the vicinity of Kerlih including Paka TNB, Paka YTL, Perwaja Steel. Tioxide, and Kertih city gate. This header would be extended south to M1 The current strategy of providing low pressure gas to the Paka TNB and YTL power stations should be maintained. However. the header should not be extended to provide low pressure gas to customers south of Kertih. This approach results in significantly higher compression and operating costs. The Kg, Tok Aron and Kertih sites should ho connected with two NPS 36 pipelines. The first would operate predorninantly et high pressure and would connect the discharge of the GPP 5/6 sales gas compressors with the discharge of the Kertih A and B stations. The second would operate predominantly al low pressure and would, indirectly, connect the suction of the GPP 516 sales gas compressors to the suction of the Kertih A and B stations. This arrangement provides increased security of supply. and system operability. n The pipelines should both be designed for high pressure so that they can be used interchangeably in the event of failure,

Determine whether or not the GPP 1 - 4 meter station should be upgraded to cater for additional Back-up capacity. The GPP 1 - 4 meter station should he up-graded to a capacity of 1.250 MMscfd. to cater for the additional capacity of DPCU . -1 Since this plant will provide back-up for the GPPs at both Kertih and Kg. Toh Aron, the stand-alone capacity at Kertih will increase from 1,000 MMscfd to 1,250 MMscfd.

Determine the tie-in points for the various pipelines. t The tie-in points for the high and low pressure pipelines wilt be the suction and discharge of the Kerlih A and B station, et the points currently designated. within the battery limits.

The conclusions are discussed in greater detail in the following sections.

Kertih Area Transmission Facility Optirnization Study 1.3 Sales Gas Demand Forecast The demand forecast used for the Kertih Area Transmission Facility Optimisation Study is based on the average demand outlined in the PGU system Study (February 2, tY93). As a result of uncertainty in the long term supply and demand forecasts, the Kerjih study %ssum%s that gas demand Will be capped at, 01 around, 2.0 Bcfd.

As such, the GPP planting schedule used in lhis analysis is hased on the results of the PGV System Study.
