Eni - through Snamprogetti, the engineering and main contracting arm - has been awarded a lump sum turnkey contract with Saudi Arabian Oil Co. (Saudi Aramco) worth about 140 million dollars following a competition with European, Japanese and US contractors.
The work will be carried out at Haradh, Saudi Arabia and will consist of a new GOSP (Gas Oil Separation Plant) for gas and oil separation, water injection, dehydration and salt removal from oil.
The new plant will provide additional production capacity for crude oil fields at Haradh, in the Eastern Province of the Kingdom.
The scope of work includes detailed design, material procurement, construction, precommissioning and commissioning assistance.
The project is due to be completed in 25 months.
Snamprogetti's presence in Saudi Arabia dates back to the 80s. Recently it concluded a turn key project for the design, procurement and construction of a 56" 204 km gas pipeline for Saudi Aramco.
