Manama: Tatweer Petroleum’s ongoing development of the Bahrain Oil Field took a significant step forward with the signing of a new contract with Petrofac to instal a new 500 million standard cubic feet per day gas dehydration facility.
As the initial phase in a series of planned gas capacity projects scheduled for the next three to five years, it marks the start of Tatweer Petroleum’s commitment to secure the delivery of natural gas needed to meet the growing demands of the kingdom.
“Installation of the new gas processing facility will be a significant milestone and is a critical piece of Bahrain’s future energy strategy,” said Tatweer Petroleum chief executive Andrew Kershaw.
“Signing this contract is the next big step forward for Tatweer Petroleum in the implementation of its long-term development plan for the Bahrain Oil Field and we are all very excited and proud to be able to move this ahead.”
“This award builds on our growing portfolio track record in the Middle East, where we’ve demonstrated our ability to safely deliver project performance and integrity,” said Petrofac offshore projects and operations deputy managing director Manivannan Rajapathy.
“We now look forward to working closely with Tatweer Petroleum and to playing a key role in the successful future supply of energy from the Bahrain Oil Field.”
