BP PLC let a contract to Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. for process and infrastructure work on the Khazzan gas project in Oman.
Jacobs will provide engineering, procurement and construction management services for $2 billion of gas gathering and water pipelines, wellhead production facilities, and export pipelines for development of the southern sector of Block 61 (OGJ Online, June 20, 2011).
Jacobs’ work also includes detailed design and program management for associated project infrastructure.
Oman and BP in December 2013 announced a gas sales agreement and an amended production-sharing agreement for development of the Khazzan field, with BP as operator.
The Khazzan project represents the first phase in development of one of the Middle East region’s largest unconventional tight gas accumulations.
