Mott MacDonald has been appointed by BGR Energy Systems to carry out detailed engineering and procurement support for the Akas and Al-Mansuria gas fields which are being developed by the State Company for Oil Projects.
The project is being developed to meet the growing demand for gas within Iraq. The gas produced from the two gas fields will be exported to major industrial and commercial users in Iraq.
The design capacity of both gas processing facilities is 110 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of product gas. Each gas processing facility will include a gas gathering station, gas and condensate separation, a gas sweetening and regeneration unit and a gas dehydration and regeneration unit.
Mott MacDonald, the global engineering, management and development consultancy has been appointed to carry out detailed design and engineering for the gas fields which will involve process, civil, piping, electrical and instrumentation engineering. The services also include HAZOPs and technical procurement support, including technical bid evaluation and vendor submission reviews.
Mott MacDonald’s project director, Basavaraj Angadi said, “Mott MacDonald has been providing a diverse range of management consulting, engineering and project management services to the oil and gas sector for over 40 years. We offer the full spectrum of technical expertise.”
Detailed engineering for both fields is expected to be completed towards the middle of 2011.
