HOUSTON, Sept. 30 -- BGR Energy Systems Ltd., Andhra Pradesh, India, has awarded Mott MacDonald Group Ltd., Croydon, UK, a contract for detailed engineering and procurement of two 110-MMcfd gas plants for Akas and Al-Mansuria gas fields in Iraq. The announcement did not cite a value for the contract nor did Mott MacDonald disclose it.

Iraq’s State Co. for Oil Projects is developing the fields in response to growing gas demand within Iraq. SCOP is an autonomous unit within Iraq National Oil Co. that is responsible for design and engineering of upstream and downstream projects.

Gas produced from the two fields will be sold to “major industrial and commercial users” in Iraq, according to the announcement from Mott MacDonald.

Each gas processing plant will include gathering, gas and condensate separation, gas sweetening and regeneration, and gas dehydration and glycol regeneration. Mott MacDonald declined to disclose how much condensate the plants may produce, how it will be disposed of, or the projected start-up date for either plant.

Mott MacDonald expects to complete engineering for both fields by mid-2011.
