KUWAIT CITY, Feb 21: According to reliable sources from the oil sector, Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) is planning to issue a change order worth $200 million for the construction of the Jurassic Production Facility (JPF3) in the West Rawdatain oil fields in order to develop the facility, add some modifications to the units, and make the most from its production of light fuel and natural gas, reports Al-Anba daily.
They explained that the Kuwaiti-based oil and gas contractor SETCO has been implementing the project for four years with a value of $377 million.
The scope of the work in the first phase of the project includes building a gas processing facility and another for oil treatment, with a capacity of 100-120 million standard cubic feet of gas per day and 40,000 barrels of oil per day in a row, at a rate of 200 tons per day of sulfur production. The first phase became fully operational at the end of March 2018.
It should be noted that the Early Production Facility project is being implemented by KOC for implementation, which is a leasing system that ends with ownership and is an alternative to the engineering, purchasing, construction and supply model.
The SETCO contract was one of the three contracts that formed the second phase of the natural gas production plan in Kuwait, while the other two contracts were won by the American company Schlumberger. The three contracts that formed the second phase of the non-associated gas production program in Kuwait required the production of about 120,000 barrels of wet oil per day, and more than 300 million cubic feet per day of sour gas from Rawdatain and Sabriya oil fields, the northeast of Rawdatian, and Umm Niqa fields in northern Kuwait.
The Jurassic reservoirs were discovered in the fields of northern Kuwait (Rawdatain, Sabriya, Dhabi, Umm Naqa and Bahrah), which necessitated the construction of four Jurassic facilities for the production of light oil and non-associated gas, which is the EPF-50 facility that was operational in 2008, and the JPF-Sabriya facility, which was commissioned at the end of 2017, as well as the facilities in west and east Rawdatain which were commissioned in 2018.
