Developers have submitted expressions of interest for planned power and steam project

State oil company Saudi Aramco has received expressions of interest (EOI) for a planned cogeneration independent steam and power project (ISPP) at its Marjan oilfield development.

The oil company received EOIs from developers on 11 February for the cogeneration project, which is planned to have a power plant with a capacity of 700-900MW and steam turbines and heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) for steam production.

According to information ascertained from MEED Projects and sources close to the project, Germany’s Fichtner Consulting Engineers has been appointed as consultant for the project.

MEED recently reported that Aramco was planning to tender four major packages in September this year for the multibillion-dollar project to develop the Marjan field.

One package is for the construction of nine jackets for oil platforms, with the second package covering eight jackets for gas platforms. The third package is expected to cover four tie-in platforms (TPs), and the fourth package will include the construction of an estimated $4-5bn gas oil separation plant (GOSP).
