The Khursaniyah Project Team Start building after it cut 20 months of preliminary work to eight months and began pouring concrete on Sept. 12. The Khursaniyah Program consists of facilities to produce and treat 500,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil, 450,000 bpd of injection water, 1 billion standard cubic feet per day of gas and 300,000 bpd of NGL.

The project also includes utilities, treatment facilities and cogeneration units. It encompasses more than 140 oil and water wells; more than 500 kilometers of major gas, oil and water pipelines to and from the plants; more than 250 km of flow lines; 300 km of 13.8-kilovolt electric power lines; cathodic protection systems; and temporary and permanent communication systems for voice and data transmissions.

In March, the project team cut through the project proposal phase, going from the design-basis scoping paper, which covers the general specifications and production requirements of a project, and contract award straight to design activities. That effectively cut 12 months out of the process, compared to the fastest similar Saudi Aramco project.

"Meeting this milestone is essential to accomplishing the Khursaniyah Program objective of having the facilities on stream by December 2007," said Ghalib A. Al-Alwan, Khursaniyah Projects Department manager.

Three concrete batch plants are being set up at the job site, in anticipation of an ambitious construction schedule. But in the meantime, concrete is coming from Jubail mixed with ice to keep the temperature at 30 degrees C.

Industrial Support Facilities - made up of workshops, administration offices, transportation yards and everything required for operations and maintenance - will be built as part of the Khursaniyah Program.

The area being developed is about 6.5 km by 7.0 km. Eight construction contractors and six engineering services contractors are at work on the program.
