Saudi Aramco continue expansion in the Marjan field

The Marjan Field Expansion will process 2.5 billion ft3 of gas per day.

The project aims to expand the field and increase its crude oil production capacity by 300 000 bpd, reaching a total of 800 000 bpd after the facility expansion.

Sarens transported the heavy equipment from the supplier's facility in Rabiq, Western Saudi Arabia, to Marjan's facility in Safanya, North-eastern Saudi Arabia, and then carrying out the assembly of parts for the new platform modules.

Saudi Aramco has already begun expansion work on the Marjan oil field, which already has the capacity to produce up to 500 000 b/d of crude oil from existing infrastructure, to compensate for the reduction in oil capacity at other nearby fields.

The Marjan oil field is owned by the Saudi Arabian state-owned oil and gas company Saudi Aramco, which has relied on Abdullah Nass and Partners (ANPC) with Sarens Consultancy, to transport the necessary materials to the site and then place them in their final location, completing the facility's expansion work.

Saudi Aramco's extensive offshore and onshore operations are expected to maintain production in the Gulf area for the next decade, as hundreds of new wells will need to be drilled to support other operations in nearby oil fields. The project aims to expand the field and increase its crude oil production capacity by 300 000 barrels per day, as well as produce 360 000 bpd of ethane and NGLs by processing an additional 2.5 billion ft3 per day of gas produced from the field. Therefore, the production capacity of the Marjan field is expected to reach 800 000 bpd after the expansion of the facilities.

The placement of each of the pieces of the different modules was carried out with heavy lifting equipment. In this case, two CC2400-1 (Crawler Cranes with a capacity of up to 400 tons) and two Mobile Cranes with a capacity of 300 and 100 t were used. Since the Marjan oil and gas field is located in the Arabian Gulf, off the Eastern coast of Saudi Arabia, after the assembly of the different modules, the project will require the appropriate machinery to load them to the gas processing facility, where they will be finally placed.
