KGOC lets gas-condensate export project to Technip

Kuwait Gulf Oil Co. awarded Technip a contract for engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of its Gas and Condensate Export System (GCES) project spread over onshore and offshore locations in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

GCES is designed to to deliver a combination of lean gas, condensate, and sour gas through a single 12-in. OD export pipeline from Al Khafji Joint Operations (KJO) facilities in Saudi Arabia to Kuwait Oil Co.’s (KOC) tie-in intermediate slug catcher, currently under construction near Al-Ahmadi, Kuwait, as KOC Project No EF/1718.

Total export pipeline length is 110 km, with 4 km onshore in Saudi Arabia, followed by 47 km offshore, and 59 km onshore in Kuwait.

Technip's operating center in Abu Dhabi will execute the project, scheduled to be completed by second-half 2014. DLB Comanche, which entered the Technip fleet with the acquisition of Global Industries, will complete offshore operations.

In addition to monetizing additional hydrocarbon resources, GCES will help KOC/KJO reach their goal of flaring no more than  1% of produced natural gas.

A Technip-National Petroleum Construction Co. joint venture last year won a contract for development of the Satah field in the Persian Gulf 200 km northwest of Abu Dhabi (OGJ Online, Sept. 13, 2011).
