Oman Oil Fields Open for Business

The Sultanate of Oman's main oil producer, Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) has launched a bidding tender for a contract to provide engineering and procurement services to expand the Al Noor and Sakhiya oil fields. Bids must be submitted by Feb. 9, and the contract will be awarded by Jul. 31.

The Al Noor project's scope will include the installation of an additional gas dehydration train and gas injection compression facilities at the existing production station.

Work at the Sakhiya field will include the installation of a high-pressure mini flood project, consisting of the injection of toxic natural gas into the field to boost oil output.

Partially owned by Royal Dutch Shell, PDO will commence production enhancement activities at the two fields on Aug. 7.
