Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) announces the successful completion of the first phase of the Mabrouk field development project. On March 30th, oil began flowing through new facilities built at the field, barely 23 months after work started in May 2007.

“This is a major achievement in which a new oilfield was developed in record time, on budget and with an excellent safety record,” Managing Director John Malcolm said. “When fully completed, the Mabrouk field facilities will make a significant contribution to sustaining Oman’s oil and gas production over the coming years.”

The field development plan currently being implemented by PDO involves the construction of a major new production station and associated gathering system, the first phase of which has just been completed. Over the coming years, a total of 76 new wells will be drilled at the field.

The new facility can process 63,000 barrels per day of gross liquids (oil and water) and 2.5
million standard cubic metres a day of gas.

The second phase of the Mabrouk project involves the installation of powerful gas compressors capable of sending natural gas produced at the field to the Saih Rawl gas processing plant where it will enter the Government Gas System. Phase II is scheduled for completion in early 2010.

“The project was successfully fast-tracked by leveraging existing service contracts with Galfar and STS/Mott MacDonald, which enabled accelerated completion in a heated engineering market” North Oil Director, Saif Al-Hinai said.
