Saudi Aramco receives applications for contracts to increase gas production capacity
The contracts are part of a $ 4 billion scheme to increase gas production in the country for domestic consumption.

Domestic demand in Saudi Arabia is growing, mainly because of the growth of industrial sectors, which the country wants to develop further.

Last week, Asian and European companies applied for expansion of the gas plant Hawiyah. Aramco plans to expand the processing capacity in Hawiyah by 1.3 billion standard cubic feet per day. At present, it processes 2.5 billion barrels of gas.

Companies that have applied: South Korean Hyundai Development Co Engineering & Construction (HDEC), engineering and construction company GS, Spanish Tecnicas Reunidas, Italian Saipem, Chinese Shandong Electric Power Construction Corp (SEPCO), Indian company Larsen and Toubro (L & T) Taiwanese CTCI and British Petrofac.

Saudi Aramco is implementing a two-stage plan to expand its gas main system, built in the mid-1970s to collect and process associated gas from oil wells for domestic industry.

It is planned to complete the first stage of capacity expansion of the system by the end of this year by installing facilities, including booster compressor stations.

The second phase of the expansion of MGS will bring capacity to 12.5 billion standard cubic feet per day in 2019.
