EXCLUSIVE: Saudi Aramco seeks contractors for Berri processing plant

02 October 2018
The package is part of Aramco’s larger $1.7bn Berri field development

Saudi Aramco has issued expressions of interest (EOI) to contractors for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) works for expanding the existing gas-oil separation plant’s (GOSP) processing capacity as part of its Berri field development megaproject.

“Aramco has only recently solicited interest from contractors for this job,” a source told MEED.

The main contract for the Berri GOSP expansion package is estimated to be worth $1.7bn.

Invitation to bid for the contract is expected to issued by the client later in October.

The main scope of work on this package of the Berri megaproject is increasing the capacity of the existing GOSP, and installing units for recovery of natural gas liquids (NGL) and sulphur.

Canada’s SNC-Lavalin has done the front-end engineering and design (feed) works on the project.

The objective of the project is to expand the Berri GOSP in Jubail to enable it to recover more NGL and sulphur from low-pressure gas.

The project comprises the GOSP at the existing Abu Ali gas plant, as well as additional facilities at the Khursaniyah gas plant that will process 40 million barrels a day of hydrocarbon condensates, all associated with the mega Berri Crude Increment programme.
