Stone & Webster, part of the US' Shaw Group, has been appointed project management consultant for the offshore Umm Shaif gas reinjection project (MEED 6:7:01).
The estimated $1,200 million project calls for the reinjection of some 600 million cubic feet a day of gas into the Umm Shaif reservoir to maintain oil production.
The Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco) project has been divided into two parts. The first, expected to cost $800 million, involves the installation of a new supercomplex some four kilometres from the existing facilities at Umm Shaif. It will include compression, processing and accommodation platforms.
The remaining $400 million will be spent on drilling new wells and associated works (MEED 28:9:01).
A contract award is also expected soon for the front-end engineering and design (FEED) package on the project. The frontrunners for the contract are France's Technip and Worley of Australia (MEED 21:12:01).
