Saudi Arabia plans to increase the production capacity of the Central Processing Facilities (CPF) at the Khurais field by 300,000 barrels of oil per day from its current capacity of 1,200,000 barrels/day. In addition, new satellite Gas Oil Separation Plants (GOSP) shall boost the productivity of the nearby Mazalij and Abu Jifan fields...
Riyadh/Saudi Arabia – The field's operators, Saudi Aramco, entrusted Swiss engineering experts Foster Wheeler with the front-end engineering design (FEED), quipment and material specifications, development of a cost estimate, and procurement assistance for long-lead items. The FEED is expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2014. Foster Wheeler had already done the original Khurais CPF FEED in 2005/2006, as well as engineering, procurement and construction, with a joint venture partner, for an onsite gas plant.
“Foster Wheeler has enjoyed a very successful long-term relationship with Saudi Aramco, and we are delighted to continue to play a role in Saudi Aramco’s strategic investments,” said Umberto della Sala, President and Chief Operating Officer of Foster Wheeler AG. “This award reflects the confidence of Saudi Aramco in our FEED capability and project execution expertise, proven on previous major Saudi Aramco oil and gas developments, including Haradh, Qatif, Manifa, Karan and the original Khurais developments.”
