The scope of works on the contract covers: central production processing facilities, including eight treating trains due for commissioning between late 2007 and the first half of 2009, water de-oiling facilities with a water treatment plant and a power plant; satellite production processing facilities, two of firm scope and two of optional scope; an oil tank farm; and associated works. Import and export pipelines to serve the field development will be tendered separately. Each of the first four trains will have capacity of 18,750 barrels a day.

Canada-based WorleyParsons MEGis carrying out the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract. The estimated $2,000 million Mukhaizna project calls for the use of thermal injection techniques to raise production from the field to 150,000 barrels a day (b/d) from 10,000 b/d by 2011.
