Bids in for Bu Hasa upgrade

10 February 2003
Five companies submitted the first set of technical bids by 4 February for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract covering the Bu Hasa production upgrade facilities and reservoirs development project in Abu Dhabi. The second set of technical bids are due to be returned by 18 March (MEED 13:12:02; 25:10:02).

The bidders are Paris-based Technip-Coflexip with the local National Petroleum Construction Company, JGC Corporation of Japan, US-based Fluor Daniel, and Snamprogettiand Saipem,both of Italy.

The project is estimated to cost $300 million-350 million and is effectively an expanded version of the surface upgrade and gas reinjection schemes (MEED 18:10:02).

The scope of works on the 32-month contract includes the construction of a new degasification plant with nameplate capacity of 730,000 barrels a day (b/d) and the replacement of the existing two-phase gas separators, each of 50,000 b/d, with four new three-phase separators, each of 120,000 b/d.

The project will also entail the installation of facilities for the reinjection of 95 million cubic feet a day and 120,000 b/d of water into the G, F and D reservoirs. It will tackle a rising water cut and falling reservoir pressure.

The US' Parsons International is acting as project management consultant for the scheme. The client is Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (Adco).
