CB&I (NYSE:CBI) today announced it has been awarded a contract by Groupement Isarene, a joint venture between Sonatrach, Petroceltic International plc and Enel Trade S.p.A, to provide front end engineering and design (FEED) services for the Ain Tsila gas field development located in onshore Algeria.

 

CB&I's project scope includes FEED development for a grassroots 420 million cubic feet per day gas plant facility, plus three associated pipelines and well collection. The gas plant facility will include a gas processing plant with water separation, condensate and liquefied petroleum gas recovery equipment, gas compression, export pumps and metering facilities.

 

"This contract allows CB&I to continue our legacy of delivering complex oil and gas projects in all areas of the globe, including Algeria," said Patrick K. Mullen, President of CB&I's Engineering, Construction and Maintenance operating group. "Our depth of resources and breadth of experience will create value for our customer and enable them to optimize production from this significant project."

Foster Wheeler AG (Nasdaq:FWLT) announced today that a subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group, in joint venture with Taknia Libya Engineering Company (Taknia), has been awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract by Nafusah Oil Operations B.V. Libyan Branch for an onshore oilfield development, known as the Area 47 Development Project in Libya. Area 47 (North Hamada Field) is located in the Hamada region, approximately 200 km south of Tripoli, in the Ghadames Basin.

 

The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed and will be included in the company’s second-quarter 2014 bookings.

 

The planned development will consist of approximately 34 producing wells, including eleven existing wells and approximately 23 new wells, flow-lines and a common gathering trunk-line to transport the well fluids to the central gas oil separation facility for primary treatment. After separation, the oil and gas produced will be exported through new pipelines that will be connected into existing pipelines carrying products to the Mellitah delivery terminal, in the northwest of Libya, on the Mediterranean Sea, for export. The planned design capacity of the gas oil separation facility is 50,000 barrels per day (BPD) of oil, 90 million standard cubic feet per day of gas and associated water (to be re-injected into the reservoirs).

 

“Foster Wheeler has been involved in the Area 47 Development Project for some time, having completed the conceptual study in 2012 and worked on the FEED definition in 2013,” said Roberto Penno, Chief Executive Officer, Foster Wheeler Global Engineering and Construction Group. “Area 47 is located in a relatively remote part of Libya, so the facilities are being designed on a modular basis in order to minimize on-site construction and installation activities, and to accommodate future expansion.”

 

“Taknia Libya Engineering Company looks forward to the joint execution of this FEED project with Foster Wheeler,” said Tayeb Said, Managing Director, Taknia Libya Engineering Company. “We hope this partnership will open the door for more co-operation between the two parties to execute more projects in the Libyan market and more significantly help enhance the technology transfer program that Taknia is implementing.”

 

“To achieve first oil production by the end of 2016, Nafusah is looking forward to have this FEED project completed on schedule or even before in order to start the second phase of the project as early as possible in 2015,” said Mohamed Jamaleddin, Chairman of the Operating Management Committee, Nafusah Oil Operations B.V. Libyan Branch. “We trust that the in-depth technical expertise of the Foster Wheeler and Taknia joint venture will ensure the successful and safe delivery of a high quality project for Nafusah.”

 

Nafusah Oil Operations was formed as a joint operating company by PT Medco Energi Internasional, through its subsidiary Medco International Ventures Limited (MedcoEnergi), of Indonesia, with its partners, the National Oil Corporation of Libya and the Libyan Investment Authority. Nafusah Oil Operating Company will act as the operator for the development and production phases of Area 47.
