Amec Foster Wheeler said it has been awarded a contract by Sonatrach of Algeria to supply engineering services for the de-bottlenecking of the Hassi R’Mel gas field, located approximately 550 kilometres south of Algiers.
The specialist consultancy work will support Sonatrach’s aim to operate the Hassi R’Mel gas field well into the future, the company said in a statement.
The engineering design services involve a major flow assurance exercise using Amec Foster Wheeler’s 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.
The value of the consultancy contract has not been revealed by the company.
