PDO (Petroleum Development Oman) have decided to upgrade their existing Lekwair production station (LPS) to increase the bulk handling capacity from 85 000 m3/d to 115 000 m3/d. Another goal of the upgrade is to increase produced water treatment and injection capacity from 53 000 m3/d to 69 000 m3/d.
Tebodin & Partner in Oman has been awarded, by PDO, to carry out the following scope of work: Front end engineering design (FEED) and detailed design, the preparation of specifications and drawings, the design review, Hazop (hazard and operability study), instrumented protective function (IFP), SAFOP (safety and operability study), and safety studies as applicable for this project.
To upgrade the facility, it must conform to the defined requirements, a variety of equipment need to be installed, such as a production separator with its associated piping, a skim tank with a new inlet header and associated oil reclaim system, and several pumps. Furthermore, a new chemical building will be erected, causing a relocation of the existing one, to create more space for the new injection pumps.
It will take Tebodin & Partner 11 months, 65 204 man hours, to execute all tasks as included in the contract.
