PDO lets contract for Saih Nihayda plant in Oman

By OGJ editors

Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) has let a $100 million contract to ABB of Zurich for a condensate processing plant in Oman. The Saih Nihayda condensate stabilization plant will be built near the Saih Nihayda gas plant in the northern part of the PDO concession area and will have the capacity to process 4,500 standard cu m/day (about 28,000 b/d) of condensate. The plant will back up the existing central processing plant to “ensure continued gas production for PDO’s domestic and export customers,” PDO said.

PDO said the project is central to its goal of sustaining gas flows from its main gas production in the north. The plant is to be completed by yearend 2014.

ABB will be responsible for engineering, procurement, and construction of the stabilization plant, including project management, training, testing, and on-site support for operation, and maintenance after start-up. In addition, ABB will supply power equipment such as low and medium-voltage switchgear, power transformers, an electrical control system, as well as continuous emission-monitoring systems, and other analytical instrumentation.
