The Wafa Plant Project (WPP) is the largest package awarded by Agip Gas B.V., a company jointly owned by Italy’s ENI and Lybia’s NOC, in the Western Libyan Gas Project (WLGP).
It was executed by JTS, a joint venture between Japan’s JGC, Tecnimont and Sofregaz which were awarded the project in January 2002.

The WPP project comprises two distinct packages. The first is implemented in the desert at Wafa, about 500 km South-West of Tripoliwhere oil and gas are separated and the gas treated to sales grade,  and the second in the coastal area, at Mellitah, about 100 km west of Tripoli on the Mediterranean coast; in addition to the liquid separation process plants, the coastal plant includes utility’s generation units, jetty and marine works for the entire Wester Lybia Gas Project (WLGP) as well as the general facilities at the complex and a village for workers.

The construction of the coastal project alone has required around 20 million construction man-hours, 50,000 cubic meters of concrete, 7,500 tons of steel structures, 8,000 tons of piping and 1800 km of electrical & instrument cables.
