The Barzan Gas Project will produce and process gas from Qatar’s North Field for use by power stations and industries in the country, ethane for the country’s petrochemicals industry and liquid hydrocarbons for sale into local and international markets.
The offshore side of the project will include an upgrade on an existing platform and an additional three offshore wellhead platforms, subsea pipelines extending up to 300km and subsea cables, extending 100km.
The fabrication of platform wellheads at Hyundai Heavy Industries’ (HHI) site at Ulsan, Korea, and laying of the pipelines at the project site in Qatar are currently underway. The offshore facilities are scheduled for completion by 2013.
