EMAS Chiyoda Subsea in collaboration with Larsen & Toubro Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) has won a contract from Saudi Aramco for the development of the second phase of the Hasbah Offshore Gas Field.
Under the $1.6bn contract, EMAS Chiyoda Subsea and LTHE will provide engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) services for the gas field development located off the coast of Saudi Arabia.
The project will help Saudi Aramco’s plans to supply an additional 2,500M standard cubic feet daily of clean natural gas through the Fadhili Gas Plant.
Under the contract, the consortium will be responsible for the construction of two streams of three wellhead platform topsides, one tie-in platform with flare platforms and bridges tied together by umbilicals and in-field pipelines.
It will also include interconnections of trunk lines to transport produced gas from the offshore gas field to the Fadhili Gas Plant. Simultaneously, fibre optic and other cables for power and communication networks will be installed.
The engineering and fabrication component of the project has commenced and the offshore execution phase is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2017. The project is set to be completed over a period of three and half years.
The joint venture also signed a six-year long-term agreement — with the option of extending it for another six years — with Saudi Aramco in June 2015 to execute offshore projects.
