Saudi Aramco project to lift Khurais flow

Saudi Aramco has let a contract to Foster Wheeler AG units for front-end engineering design (FEED) of a 300,000-b/d expansion of production capacity at the Khurais complex of oil fields, 150 km southeast of Riyadh. Current capacity is 1.2 million b/d of Arabian Light crude from Khurais, Abu Jifan, and Mazalij fields, which began production in 2009.

The project aims to increase capacity at the Khurais Central Processing Facilities and enhance production from Jifan and Mazalij through installation of a satellite gas-oil separation plant.

Khurais facilities now can handle 70,000 b/d of condensate and 320 MM scfd of natural gas produced in association with oil.

In addition to FEED work, subsidiaries of Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering & Construction Group will handle equipment and material specifications, development of a cost estimate, and procurement assistance for long-lead items. The FEED is to be complete during second-quarter 2014.
