The contract specifies that LTHE will deliver EPCC for a 6-million cu m/day plant at Hassi Ba Hamou and Reg Mouaded field, a 4-million cu m/day plant at Hassi Tidjerane field, and a 4-million cu m/day plant at Tinerkouk field, Larsen & Toubro said.

Each of the central processing plant modules, which will be fabricated in-house to achieve standardization across the fields, will be equipped with separation, compression system, mercury removal, gas dehydration, and hydrocarbon dewpoint control capabilities.

Larsen & Toubro valued the lump-sum turkey EPCC contract, which also covers off-site installations and utilities for the plants, at more than 70 billion rupees.

Further details regarding the central processing sites—including timeframes for their commissioning—were not disclosed.
