ADMA-OPCO Awards Gas Injection Project to Kellogg Brown & Root

ADMA-OPCO has awarded Kellogg Brown & Root the gas injection project to expand the output of Zakum oil field. Gas will be moved from Umm Shaif field to the Zakum West Complex for injection.

ADMA-OPCO said, "It is one of the largest offshore operations in the history of the company." A 200 MMcfd compressor would be installed at the gas injection platform. "The operation is challenging and the compressor itself is one of a kind, due to its huge capacity," said Ayman al Makawi, project manager. He said gas from Umm Shaif would be compressed and delivered to an existing wellhead tower for injection. The estimated completion time for the project is 2004.
