Foster Wheeler wins Saudi gas design contract
Khobar (Saudi Arabia), October 2, 2013
Europe-based engineering company Foster Wheeler won a contract to design and manage a new gas plant at the al-Fadhili oilfield for state oil giant Saudi Aramco, industry sources said.
The Fadhili plant, which is scheduled to be operational in 2018, will be able to deliver 520 million standard cubic feet per day of gas to the market.
Foster Wheeler declined to comment, and the sources did not give a value for the contract. The new plant will process gas from two fields, Khursaniyah and Hasbah.
Aramco already has oil and gas processing facilities in Khursaniyah, while Hasbah is one of two non-associated offshore gas fields that will feed gas to the country's Wasit project, which is currently under development.
The oil group has stepped up its search for gas to boost production and meet rising domestic fuel demand. It is now developing the Midyan gas field project in the Red Sea, which is expected to produce 75 million cubic feet of gas per day.
