Saudi Aramco and Foster Wheeler Sunday signed the onshore project management consultancy and the front-end engineering and design contracts for the 900,000 barrel-per-day Manifa Arabian Heavy crude oil field development.

Front-end engineering is expected to begin early November, with completion expected in the third quarter of 2007.

"Providing the world with a reliable supply of energy is one of Saudi Aramco's core objectives, and the Manifa project's 900,000 barrels per day of production capacity is an important part of that," said Mohammad A. Al-Juwair, Saudi Aramco's acting executive director of Project Management.

"Saudi Aramco is committed to the timely completion of this massive project," he added, "and we are confident that working with Foster Wheeler will help us meet our ambitious timeline."

In addition to the crude oil, the project will process 120 million standard cubic feet per day of associated gas.

Manifa project component highlights:

  • Central processing facility
    • Primary gas-oil separation plant (GOSP)
    • Utility and water supply plants
  • Water injection facility (1.74 million bpd)
  • Offshore platforms (jackets, platforms, electric submersible pumps)
  • Offshore crude/water injection (trunk lines, flow lines, electrical cables)
  • Downstream pipelines (to Khursaniyah Gas Plant and Ras Tanura/Ju'aymah terminals)
  • Gas facilities upgrade at Khursaniyah Gas Plant (to accommodate additional gas flow from Manifa)
  • Causeway (to link shallow-water offshore platforms)
