ExxonMobil Corp. has let a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract to Kentz, part of SNC-Lavalin Group, for an oil processing facility that will increase production at West Qurna-1 field in Iraq.

With its regional partner, Kentz is providing detailed design engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction, commissioning, and start-up of the facility, which will be capable of producing an average of 100,000 stb/d of crude.

Located in the province of Al Basra, the facility will be designed to process full well stream fluids from the production wellhead area and separate them into associated gas, untreated produced water, and stable product crude for export.

The project will be executed out of Kentz’ Abu Dhabi engineering hub, with support from its Dubai operations, and is expected to be completed in 26 months.
