Canada's SNC-Lavalin has announced the award of a contract to Kentz, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, by ExxonMobil, for a new oil processing facility to increase production at its West Qurna 1 oil field in Iraq.
Kentz, with its regional partner, is providing the front-end engineering design (FEED), detailed design engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction, commissioning and start-up of the new facility, capable of producing an annual average of 100,000 stock tank barrels of crude oil per day.
The facility, located in the province of Al Basra, will be designed to process full well stream fluids from the production wellhead area and separate them into associated gas, untreated produced water, and stable product crude for export.
The project will be executed out of the company's Abu Dhabi engineering hub, with support from its Dubai operations and is expected to be completed in 26 months. This project is critical for the West Qurna 1 overall development plan and this contract highlights key advantages that the integration brings to the company's overall capability to service key clients.
Christian Brown (pictured), President, Oil and Gas, SNC-Lavalin, said:
"We are delighted to continue our relationship with ExxonMobil, a client we've provided services to for many years.
"The combined expertise and resources in our Oil & Gas business allows us to offer an even a broader range of high-quality services, and in the Middle East we have a strong team of over 8,000 people in the region that can deliver for clients."
