Bul Hanine field off Qatar due redevelopment

Qatar Petroleum will drill 150 wells through 2028 in an $11-billion redevelopment of offshore Bul Hanine oil field.

On production since 1972, the field lies about 120 km off the country’s east coast.

Without specifying rates, QP said the project will double the field’s production. The US Energy Information Administration, citing data from Middle East Economic Survey, reports recent Bul Hanine output at about 45,000 b/d.

QP said the project includes new central production facilities offshore and a new gas liquids processing facility at Mesaieed.

Drilling will occur from existing and modified wellhead jackets and from 14 new wellhead jackets.

The new offshore complex, which will process all production streams, will have production, compression, utility, and accommodation platforms with topsides weights of 4,000-14,000 tonnes.

After the redevelopment, oil will continue to move by pipeline to Halul Island for export. A new 150-km pipeline will carry about 900 MMcfd of sour rich gas to Mesaieed. After treatment, lean sweet gas will move back offshore by a new pipeline for compression and injection.
