Bids were submitted on 4 February to Saudi Aramco for the two main packages, worth a total of about $1,500 million, on the Shaybah oil field expansion project. The scheme is aimed at increasing the field’s output by at least 250,000 barrels a day (b/d) to about 800,000 b/d of extra Light Arabian crude (MEED 23:12:05). Bidders for the larger of the two packages, worth an estimated $1,000 million, include: a US/South Korean team of Foster Wheeler and Hyundai Engineering & Construction Company; the US’ Bechtel; and Italy’s Snamprogetti. The central processing facilities (CPF) package calls for the construction of a grassroots gas/oil separation plant (GOSP), gas gathering, compression and reinjection facilities, besides wet crude and produced water handling facilities, in-field pipelines, non-electric utility and process automation control systems.
