On 5th of December 2011 the Oman Oil Company Exploration & Production held a joint ceremony with its prime contractor Hyundai Engineering Co., LTD, in the Wilayat of Bukha , Governate of Musandam, on the occasion of laying the Foundation Stone for the construction of Musandam Gas Processing Plant.

The Musandam Gas Plant (MGP), an oil and gas processing plant, is to be installed on the west coast of the Musandam Province in the Sultanate of Oman. Currently Oman has two offshore producing fields adjacent to the Musandam peninsula. These two fields, Bukha and West Bukha, are operated by RAK Petroleum. The Bukha field has been producing since 1994 and West Bukha field since 2008. The production is currently commingled on Bukha platform and transported via subsea pipeline to the Khor Khawair Processing Plant in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE. West Bukha will supply the initial production for the MGP via a new subsea pipeline from the Bukha platform.

The ceremony was held under the auspices of H.E. Sayyed Khalifa bin Al Murdas bin Ahmed Al Busaidi, the Governor of Musandam, and attended by Mr. CHOE Jong-hyun Ambassador of the Republic of South Korea to the Sultanate and local dignitaries and senior company officials from OOCEP, Hyundai Engineering Company and its subcontractors.

Salim Al- Sibani, CEO of Oman Oil Company Exploration & Production, noted “This is a very significant project for Oman and the Musandam province. The Musandam Gas Plant is part of a major integrated development comprising West Bukha field development, offshore production pipeline, crude storage and export facilities. The gas will be used to feed a future power plant to provide reliable electricity for Musandam. Further, the project will act as the foundation for additional oil and gas developments in the Region”.

Expressing his satisfaction with the project Sang-Rok Sung Senior Executive Vice President of Hyundai Engineering Co., LTD, commented, “This is an important deal for Hyundai Engineering Co. LTD, as it returns to Musandam province with local supporting services and spreads reputation of HEC’s oil & gas project in Oman”.
