Technip wins KGOC contract for gas project


Technip was awarded a contract by Kuwait Gulf Oil Company (KGOC) for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning assistance of their Gas and Condensate Export System project.

The project is spread over onshore and offshore locations in two countries, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

Single 12" export pipeline

The objective of the project is to deliver a combination of lean gas, condensate and sour gas through a single 12" export pipeline from Al Khafji Joint Operations (KJO) facilities in Saudi Arabia to Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) tie-in facility, namely the Intermediate Slug Catcher being constructed under KOC Project No EF/1718 near Al-Ahmadi, Kuwait.

Primary targets

The facilities will also assist KOC / KJO in achieving one of their primary targets of 1 per cent flaring by reducing the gas flared and additionally monetize valuable hydrocarbon resources.

Total export pipeline length is 110km, with 4km onshore in Saudi Arabia, followed by 47km offshore and 59km onshore in Kuwait.

Completion in 2014

Technip's operating center in Abu Dhabi will execute the project, which is scheduled to be completed by the second semester of 2014. Offshore installation will use the Comanche, one of the vessels which entered the Technip fleet with the acquisition of Global Industries.
