PDO to expand Barik gas facilities

16 November 2002

Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) received on 13 November expressions of interest from several contractors for the project to expand gas collection facilities at the Barik gas field in central Oman. Contractors that are understood to have responded to PDO's inquiry include India's Dodsal and Al-Hassan Engineering, Bahwan Engineering Company, The Oman Construction Company (TOCO) and Galfar Engineering & Construction, all local.

The scope of work for the main engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) package, which is estimated to be worth RO 3.9 million ($10 million), entails the installation of a gas gathering station capable of handling 4,000 cubic metres a day (cm/d) of oil and condensate and 3 million cm/d of gas. The project will also entail the construction of interconnecting gas pipelines and electrical works. Additional equipment includes multi-phase flow valves, gas injection manifolds and flare stacks. The total capital expenditure for the project is about RO 9.75 million ($25 million).

PDO has completed the detailed engineering for the project in-house. Tenders are due out in the first quarter of 2003. Oman produces about 35 million cm/d of gas at present, of which 10 million cm/d is produced from the adjacent Yibal reservoir.
