Amec Foster Wheeler awarded consultancy contract by Sonatrach in Algeria

Summary

De-bottlenecking of the Hassi R’Mel gas field, one of the largest gas fields in the world

mec Foster Wheeler announces today the award of a contract by Sonatrach, the largest oil and gas company in Africa, to supply engineering services for the de-bottlenecking of the Hassi R’Mel gas field, located approximately 550 kilometres south of Algiers.

The value of the consultancy contract, to be delivered by experts in Amec Foster Wheeler’s Reading office, has not been announced.

The specialist consultancy work will support Sonatrach’s aim to operate the Hassi R’Mel gas field well into the future, enabling Algeria to remain a major exporter of gas. The engineering design services involve a major flow assurance exercise using Amec Foster Wheeler’s proprietary software to identify future bottlenecks in the gas field gathering network. In addition, the team will undertake detailed pipeline design, compression studies and the multi-disciplined specification of the additional infrastructure required to allow continued production.
