Umm Shaif FEED goes to Worley

26 July 2002

Worley of Australia has been awarded the contract to carry out the front-end engineering and design (FEED) package for the offshore Umm Shaif gas reinjection project in Abu Dhabi emirate (MEED 6:7:01).

The FEED package will take about 12 months to complete. The estimated $1,200 million project calls for the reinjection of some 600 million cubic feet a day into the Umm Shaif reservoir to maintain oil production.

The Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco) project has been dividedinto two parts. The first, expected to cost $800 million, involves the installation of a new super-complex 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).

Stone & Webster, part of the US' Shaw Group, is acting as project manager for the proposed scheme (MEED 22:2:02).
