Ramboll has been appointed by the North Oil Company (NOC) to carry out a pre-FEED study for three new wellhead platforms at the gigantic field Al-Shaheen, off the north-eastern coast of Qatar in the Arabian Gulf.

Al-Shaheen is the largest offshore oil field in Qatar, covering more than 40% of Qatar’s oil production. NOC recently awarded Ramboll a pre-FEED study for three new wellhead platforms that will secure production and possibly maximise the recovery potential.

Working on the most ambitious field development in Qatar

“Although this is not the first time Ramboll is involved on Al-Shaheen, we are extremely honoured to work on this ambitious field development once again” says Tommy Amstrup Laursen, Managing Director for Ramboll Oil & Gas in Middle East.

Ramboll has previously carried out detailed brownfield design on Al-Shaheen spending almost 3 million hours on what is known as one of the largest and most complex oil and gas projects undertaken.

“Qatar has one of the fastest growing economies in the world and Al-Shaheen significantly contributes to the country’s economy and energy security. Therefore we have prepared carefully and thoroughly to be part of this new initiative. I believe that our past experience along with a strong local presence and multidisciplinary approach put us in the position to win this award. It is a truly global project for us, bringing together colleagues from Middle East, Denmark, Norway, and India” Tommy Amstrup Laursen adds.

NOC is the new field developer from July 2017

Al-Shaheen is situated 80 km north of Doha, in the North Gas Field. It covers 2.214 square kilometres and it has an impressive offshore reservoir that currently produces approximately 300.000 barrels of oil per day.

Al-Shaheen has been developed by Maersk Oil since 1992. From July 2017 NOC, a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and Total, will be the new developer of Al-Shaheen for the next 25 years.
