Seiyoun Gas-fired Power Plant Preliminary Feasibility Study
Middle East and North AfricaOctober 22, 2020
K&M was engaged by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to assess the technical feasibility of a gas-fired power plant at the Seiyoun site in Yemen. The plant would use natural gas captured from nearby oil deposits. K&M assessed the proposed project site, including evaluating potential environmental and social issues, access requirements, and associated infrastructure needs for gas supply and power evacuation. To support the site assessment, K&M consulted with the Government and oil operators to determine the potential availability of natural gas supplies from local oil sources. K&M reviewed electricity supply and demand needs in Yemen, including seasonal factors, projected demand growth, and T&D losses. K&M’s report included recommendations of the most suitable size and technology configuration for the project.
