Veco will carry out engineering work on the project, which is aimed at providing more crude and gas handling capacity. Its work will be overseen by Engineers India (EIL), which recently won the scheme’s project management consultancy contract (MEED 12:10:07).

The additional capacity is needed because of increased onshore oil production, the rising sulphur content of existing gas output, and the Shah, Asab and Sahil full-field development. The project is split into four elements and the cost is estimated at $800 million-1,000 million (MEED 6:7:07).
