Estimated to be worth about$100 million, the contract calls for the supply and installation for each phase of a wellhead platform, an intermediate bridge support, two flare platforms and two bridges with a total capacity of about 4,800 tonnes. The facilities will take 22 months to complete. The UK office of France’s Doris Engineering is Sadra’s engineering subcontractor and is responsible for preparing the detailed designs.

The client on the scheme is a partnership of Agip, part of Italy’s Eni,and Virgin Islands-registered Petropars.

Two consortia, both led by South Korean firms, are bidding for the contract to build onshore gas treatment facilities for the scheme. They are Daelim Engineers & Construction Company, with the local Industrial Development & Renovation Organisation; and Hyundai Engineering & Construction Company, with an unidentified local firm.

The onshore facilities will be located at Bandar Assaluyeh and will have a capacity to treat 56 million cubic metres a day of gas, together with an associated production of 80,000 barrels a day of condensate. In addition, the plants will treat more than 1 million tonnes a year of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and a similar amount of ethane, to be used as feedstock for petrochemicals (MEED 21:12:01).
