Block 61 - Khazzan and Makarem Gas Fields DevelopmentTight Gas - Execution
|Location||Center West of Oman - Oman|
|The first phase of development of Khazzan gas field was officially inaugurated. The Phase One development started gas production in September 2017, ten years after the signing of BPs production sharing contract with Oman and almost four years after the development was approved.|
|Scope||Block 61 covers 2,800 square kilometers in the Al-Dahirah Governorate, at center west of Oman, tight natural gas fields have originally discovered in 1993 but have remained undeveloped due to the complexity of their 'tight gas' reservoirs.
The two fields could potentially yield reserves of 100-120 trillion cu.ft of gas from previous estimation of 30-40 trillion cu.ft of gas. All wells will be connected to the nearby Saih Rawl gas plant. The two fields contain a mix of sour and sweet gas in four tight reservoirs: Barik, Miqrat, Amri and Buah.
BP is planning the development of Khazzan and Makarem project with:
400 wells to be deployed in clusters
Hydro fracturing equipment
Water treatment and water disposal facilities
500 kilometers gathering system of flowlines
Gas central processing facility (CPF)
100 kilometers export pipeline
Offsite and Utilities
The BP Khazzan central processing facility should have a capacity of: 1 billion cubic feet per day (cf/d) of natural gas and 25,000 barrels per day (b/d) of condensate.
