The contract valued at around USD 846m (KWD 239.7m)

Located in north Kuwait, the oil gathering facilities will receive crude from the Raudhatain fields.

The gathering centre is designed for a multi-stage process that will separate 100,000 barrels a day of crude oil, 240,000 barrels a day of water and 62.5 million square cubic feet a day of associated gas to meet the quality requirements of downstream operations.

The contract valued at around USD 846m (KWD 239.7m).

The scope of L&T’s contract includes project management, detailed engineering, procurement, supply, construction, testing, mechanical completion, pre-commissioning, commissioning assistance including performance testing.

The new facilities will support KOC’s long term strategy for the development of the North Kuwait fields to increase oil production to one million barrels of oil a day by 2015/2016.

The contract was won by L&T against stiff competition from European and Korean EPC majors. It represents a significant step forward in L&T’s strategic growth plan in the international hydrocarbon sector.

L&T’s track record in Kuwait includes critical sections of oil refineries at Shuaiba and Mina Abdullah, an aviation fuel depot and supply of 22 reactors that were part of the country’s ‘Clean Fuel Programme’.
