Jacobs Engineering Group has been selected by BP to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for the second phase of the Khazzan project in Oman.

Under the terms of the three-year contract, Jacobs will continue to deliver EPCM services in support of the project, including the ongoing expansion of the gas gathering system, well site facilities and export pipelines.

Khazzan is considered to be one of the biggest tight gas projects in the Middle East; the first phase is expected to develop approximately 7 trillion ft3 of gas, deliver plateau production of 1 billion ft3/d of gas and 25 000 bpd of gas condensate.

In September 2017, a significant milestone was reached when the first phase of the BP Khazzan project achieved first gas ahead of schedule. Jacobs delivered EPCM services for the process and infrastructure work during the first phase of this greenfield project.

“We are committed to continuing our relationship with BP through the next development phase of this world-scale gas project,” said Jacobs Petroleum and Chemicals President, Vinayak Pai. “Upon completion of the project, this field has the potential to produce gas for Oman for decades to come and simultaneously sets the stage for knowledge transfer and Omanisation.”
