Haradh Keeps on Growing with GOSP-3

Source: 1/14/2004, Location: Middle East

HARADH, January 14, 2004 -- The wheels are in motion to build, at the south end of Ghawar field, a gas oil separation plant (GOSP) that would yield 300,000 barrels of Arabian Light crude oil and 143 million standard cubic feet per day (scfd) of associated gas.

The Haradh Increment 3 Project comes on the heels of the Haradh 2 project and is already setting records.

The project proposal, designed by a U.K. company working with the Saudi Aramco Project Team, was completed in a record 13 weeks, compared to the average six months on previous company projects.

The team already has used engineering and improvement innovations, resulting in substantial cost savings without compromising the quality of the bid package.

Haradh GOSP-3 is 105 miles (170 km) south of al-Hasa and 4.3 miles (7 km) east of the town of Haradh. Upon completion, it will be the 33rd GOSP in the Southern Area and the final phase of the three-part Haradh Oil Field development.

The GOSP, to be operational by the second quarter of 2006, will transport produced oil and gas through 104 miles (167 km) of new pipelines to be connected to the existing 'Uthmaniyah-Abqaiq pipeline network.

The GOSP will be supported by water-injection facilities that are to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2005. That support will come by expanding the water injection facilities at the existing Haradh GOSP-2, the Hawiyah Water Injection Pump Stations and by construction of 92 miles (148 km) of seawater supply and injection pipelines. The pipelines and administrative support buildings, to be erected on site, will be constructed by a Saudi engineering firm.

Faysal H. Al-Khaldi, executive director of Southern Area Oil Operations, said: "Teamwork is the key word in this project. We have picked proven team players and empowered them to go and do the work. This means we are confident in their ability to do the work, and we will let them resolve whatever problems they encounter."

Then he added, "They have shown, by their accomplishments so far, that they are up to the job. Many of them have a lot of experience from Haradh 2, and they are putting all that to work."

He also expects Haradh 3 to provide a lot of opportunities for craftsmen, engineers and others who will take part in the project. "Haradh 2 was a great success story, but Haradh 3 will surpass even that," he said.
