Four in for Mukhaizna

28 November 2004
A shortlist of four companies is understood to have been passed to the Tender Board by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO)for the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract on the Mukhaizna thermal injection project. A full tender is due to be issued in the first quarter of 2005.

The four prequalifiers are Colt Engineering, MEG Worleyand SNC Lavalin, all of Canada, and the US' Jacobs Engineering. The estimated $1,500 million-2,000 million Mukhaizna project involves drilling about 1,500 wells and construction of 60-100 steam plants, with the aim of boosting production to 60,000-80,000 barrels a day (b/d) by 2010, from about 15,000 b/d (MEED 15:10:04).

Mukhaizna is one of several enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects under way by PDO. Technical bids are due by 7 February for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract on the Harweel phase 2 miscible gas injection project, for which four companies are prequalified (MEED 12:11:04).

Bids have been invited by 1 December for the provision of drilling services on the project, involving the drilling of up to 30 wells over two years.
