Aramco commissions offshore Hasbah gas field

Saudi Aramco has commissioned offshore Hasbah natural gas field, part of the two-field Al Wasit gas project.

Production is to reach a combined 2.5 bscfd from Hasbah and nearby Arabiyah fields, processed at the onshore Wasit gas processing plant. The fields are in about 50 km of water, 150 km northeast of Jubail.

According to Tecnoconsult Engineering Construction SRL, which is assisting Saipem SPA with engineering, procurement, installation, and commissioning, Hasbah will have seven wellhead platforms connected by 12-in. flowlines to a tie-in platform.

Arabiyah, southeast of Hasbah, will have eight wellhead platforms, connected like those at Hasbah by 12-in. flowlines to a tie-in platform.

Twin 36-in. trunklines will carry production from the fields to the Wasit gas plant, which has 240,000 b/d of NGL extraction capacity.

The project also includes an intermediate injection platform on the trunklines in 25 m of water and pipelines for monoethylene glycol.
