The agreements involve improving and sustaining gas production from Haradh and Hawiyah fields by reducing choke pressure at the wellhead.

Hawiyah Gas Plant (HGP) expansion project is expected to provide additional gas processing facilities to process 1,070mn scf per day of raw sweet gas, installing a pipeline network to allow free flowing 290mn scf per day from Haradh field to Hawiyah Gas Plant.

The contracts further involve construction of roads and carrying out earthworks in Haradh and Hawiyah, said Fahad Al-Helal, vice-president for project management at Saudi Aramco.

“We constantly work toward achieving Saudi Aramco’s goals and objectives in natural gas production to diversify the kingdom’s energy mix and to make cleaner energy resources available. Today’s contracts are in line with those goals and objectives,” he explained.

“The sites development project will leverage Haradh increment programme, which is considered a catalyst for growth through increasing total gas production by more than one billion scf per day. We are glad that a local pioneer company is involved in the execution of this major project,” added Al-Helal.

Saudi Aramco has also signed a number of agreements worth US$4.5bn in total with several oil and gas service contractors for oil and gas megaprojects, aiming to enhance the company’s energy sustainability, diversify economy, expand gas production and localise domestic content.
