QP lets wellhead jacket contract for Bul Hanine redevelopment

Qatar Petroleum (QP) has let a contract to McDermott International Inc. to engineer, procure, construct, and install four wellhead jackets for the redevelopment of Bul Hanine oil field offshore Qatar.

The company says the first two jackets will be installed by December 2016 and the final two by July 2017.

QP announced its $11-billion plan to redevelop Bul Hanine in 2014 (OGJ Online, May 14, 2014). The project includes new central production facilities offshore and a gas liquids processing facility at Mesaieed. One hundred-fifty wells will be drilled from existing and modified wellhead jackets and from 14 wellhead jackets, including those contracted with McDremott.

On production since 1972, Bul Hanine field lies 120 km off the Qatar’s east coast.
