Jalila field off Dubai due second platform

State-owned Dubai Petroleum Establishment has let a contract to Technip for a second platform in the development of Jalila oil field, a 2010 discovery made in the sidetrack of a reentered 1986 dry hole offshore Dubai (OGJ Online, Apr. 9, 2010).

Technip will provide engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of a platform with a 900-ton deck and 500-ton jacket. The contract also covers 13 new risers on existing platforms and installation of 110 km of pipelines with diameters of 6-24 in.

The field, details about which haven’t been reported by the Dubai government, lies 90 km offshore, east of small Rashid oil field, in water as deep as 60 m.

A joint venture of Global Industries Ltd., which became a Technip subsidiary in 2011, and Lamprell of Dubai handled design, construction, and installation of the first platform, a basic unmanned wellhead unit. The earlier project involved installation of a 27 km, 6-in. gas lift pipeline and a 27-km, 12-in oil production pipeline to an existing offshore processing facility.
