Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has bagged another order from Petroleum Development Oman LLC valued around Rs 1,302 crore. The new order involves Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) of the Saih Rawl Depletion Compression phase 2 (SRDC2) project. The company has won the order against stiff competition from nine international EPC bidders.
Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) is the leading exploration and production company in the Sultanate. It accounts for more than 70% of the country's crude oil production and nearly all of its natural-gas supply.
In 1999 the production from the Saih Rawl (SR) Gas Fields commenced. However due to declining reservoir pressure in Saih Rawl Main (SRM) Field, the Saih Rawl Main wells flowing tubing pressure will continuously decline until it reaches 35 barg in first quarter 2015. In order to continue to produce on-spec gas through the CPP in first quarter 2015, second stage depletion compressors (SRDC2) are required to be installed upstream of the SRDC1. L&T has been chosen to execute this part of the project.
The SRDC2 involves installation of 76 MW of gas compression capacity with 4 trains, and modification of the condensate handling system at CPP. This will enable the Saih Rawl Main field to produce maximum annual daily load (MADL) of 30 mmscmd gas.
L&T’s EPC expertise in this region has been earlier roped in for executing around 150 MUSD, Lekhwair Gas Field Development Project for PDO.
