HOUSTON, Dec. 27
-- State-owned Turkmengas has begun the $3.4 million second phase of its South Yoloten project, according to international oil and gas service company Petrofac, London. Petrofac will perform the engineering, procurement, and commissioning on the project. The work follows successful completion of the first phase.

When complete, South Yoloten field, which lies about 250 miles southeast of the Turkmen capital of Ashgabat, will export 20 billion cu m/year. Under the 32-month second phase of the lump-sum contract, Petrofac will provide a 10 bcm/year gas processing plant along with infrastructure and pipelines for the entire 20-bcm/year development.

Feed gas from the field contains up to 6% hydrogen sulfide, said the Petrofac announcement, and development will include gas treatment and sulfur handling, along with well pad, gathering, infrastructure and utilities, condensate processing, storage, and export.
