Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Co. (ADMA-OPCO) has let two contracts for its development of Satah Al-Razboot (SARB) oil field about 120 km offshore Abu Dhabi’s northwestern coast (OGJ Online, May 3, 2011).
ADMA-OPCO is developing the field with two artificial islands, SARB-1 and SARB-2, which are under construction and will have 42-44 wells each. Production of 100,000 b/d will flow about 7 km to processing facilities on Zirku Island, which handles production from Upper Zakum and Satah fields operated by Zakum Development Co.
One of the new contracts, worth $1.89 billion, went to Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. for onshore engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC). The other contract, worth $515.4 million, is for offshore EPC and went to Petrofac International.
Hyundai’s onshore work will include processing, storage, and export facilities on Zirku Island and wellhead facilities on the artificial islands.
The main offshore work by Petrofac will include about 200 km of subsea pipelines, 55 km of subsea cables, a single-point mooring crude loading facility, four offshore flares, two riser platforms, and drilling utilities on the artificial islands.
Work is to be completed in 2017.
