Project Overview


Background

In order to expand its onshore processing capacity, national oil giants Saudi Aramco is developing the offshore Berri field in the east coast of the Kingdom.


Scope of Work

Saudi Aramco is expanding its oil and gas production from the Berri offshore oilfield. Over time, they plan to add 250,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil from Berri, possibly by building drilling islands offshore in the Gulf, while also processing higher-pressure associated gas for sweetening in Khursaniyah. Low-pressure gas would then be sent to the Berri gas plant in Jubail, which will be expanded under a program to recover more natural gas liquids (NGL) and sulfur.


Finance

Saudi Aramco is financing the development of the Berri oil field.


Additional Notes

Berri is a giant oil field which originally had reserves in excess of 15 billion barrels. It has 11 oil-bearing reservoirs, the most significant of which are the Arab A, B, C and D reservoirs which produce Arabian light crude and the Hanifa, Hadriya and Upper Fadhili reservoirs, which produce Arabian extra light. A deeper reservoir, the Lower Fadhili, also contains Extra Light but has not been developed because of its low permeability.
