Lamprell has won a contract from Sharjah National Oil Corp. (SNOC) to carry out work on the Mahani field.
The service company said it had been chosen to carry out the engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning (EPIC) contract on the gas and condensate field. It did not provide an exact figure for the value of the work, describing it as medium sized, which it defines as between $6 million and $50 million.
Lamprell’s site services business will carry out the work on the Mahani extended well test project. The contract covers hook up and installation at the well, upgrading of existing systems, associated tie-ins and a new 25 km export pipeline.
“SNOC is an important client for us and through delivering to consistently high and competitive standards, we are very proud of the track record we’ve developed with them. Mahani is a strategic gas discovery,” said Lamprell’s CEO Christopher McDonald.
“We are looking forward to being associated with it, delivering this project safely and on time.”
Eni announced the Mahani discovery in late January. The Mahani-1 well found a thick gas-bearing limestone reservoir in the Lower Cretaceous Thamama. It flowed at up to 50 million cubic feet (1.4 million cubic metres) per day of lean gas and associated condensate.
Eni and SNOC each have a 50% stake in Concession Area B. At the time, the Italian company said it had already begun studies on fast tracking the development of the resources while also evaluating the discovery.
Lamprell did have three yards in the United Arab Emirates but two of them are being shuttered, including one in Sharjah. In April, the company said the Sharjah facility would be closed once work on the Moray East offshore wind farm had been completed.
The company expects to go ahead with the yard closure as planned.
