LONDON -- Khafji Joint Operations (KJO) has contracted WorleyParsons for general engineering services. These will support exploration and production of hydrocarbon reserves in the offshore divided zone in the border area between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
KJO is an operating agreement between Aramco Gulf Operations Co. (AGOC) and Kuwait Gulf Oil Co. (KGOC). Its headquarters and main onshore facilities are in Khafji, just south of the Saudi/Kuwaiti border.
The general engineering services contract will run for five years with an option for an additional 12 months, and will comprise various ongoing service orders.
The first involves front-end engineering and design of the greenfield development of a new gas/condensate field with an oil rim offshore Khafji. Gas and oil wells will produce through dry well trees with chokes on wellhead platforms dispersed throughout the field.
Production flowlines will be gathered in a manifold, with output piped via 14-in. (35.6-cm) infield pipelines to a central gathering platform. Here, fluids will be separated into gas and liquid, divided, metered, and then comingled before entering two separate pipelines for export to Khafji for AGOC and Al-Zour for KGOC.
