Offshore staff

SINGAPORE Saudi Aramco has awarded the EMAS CHIYODA Subsea and Larsen & Toubro Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) consortium a $1.6-billion EPCI contract for the second phase of the Hasbah gas field.

The consortium will be involved in the construction of two streams of three wellhead platform topsides, one tie-in platform with flare platforms and bridges tied together by 20 km (12 mi) umbilicals and 25 km (16 mi) of in-field pipelines.

Other works include interconnections of two 36-in. trunklines to transport produced gas from offshore to Fadhili gas plant complete with 110 km (68.4 mi) of fiber-optic and power cables for power and communication network with the onshore facilities.

The installation of onshore facilities such as a beach valve station, a sectionalizing valve station and four scraper traps will also be executed as part of the contract.

The onshore engineering and fabrication component of the project has commenced and the offshore execution phase is expected to begin in 4Q 2017.

Located in the Arabian Gulf, the project is scheduled to be completed over a period of three and a half years and will serve Saudi Aramco’s strategy to supply an additional 2,500 MMscf/d of natural gas through the Fadhili gas plant to meet the country’s growing domestic energy demand.

This is the first major contract awarded by the oil giant to the EMAS CHIYODA Subsea-LTHE consortium. It entered into a six-year agreement, with exercisable options to extend for another six years, with Saudi Aramco in June 2015 to execute offshore projects.
