The project, which is estimated to be worth $200 million-250 million, will centre on the supply and installation of gas injection compressors, treatment units, separators, four 20-kilometre pipelines and related facilities at the onshore Arzana site. The scheme will involve the reinjection of 10 million cubic feet a day of associated gas to maintain reservoir pressure at the offshore field. At present, Satah has production capacity of about 25,000 barrels a day.

An award is approaching for the post of project manager on Satah. Three companies submitted commercial and technical bids in early March. The bidders are the UK’s Mott MacDonald, Parsons E&Cand VECO.
