Belayim Petroleum Company (PETROBEL), a joint venture between The Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and Eni S.P.A (Eni) is undertaking the development of a gas field at Zohr, Egypt.

The project involves the development of a gas field with a capacity of 850 billion standard cubic meters of gas per day and will be developed in phases.

The project includes the construction of gas production processing plant with the capacity of 2,700 million cubic feet of gas per day, gas gathering facilities, a gas treatment plant, a central processing facility, a gas pipeline, storage facilities, compressor stations, access roads and power related facilities, and the drilling of 20 wells.

The project will involve the construction and installation of an offshore control and production platform, which will further be connected to an onshore processing plant by means of subsea pipelines.

The first phase includes the drilling of six wells while the second phase includes the drilling of remaining 16 wells.

Frames Process Systems B.V has been awarded the contract to design and supply eight sour gas filter coalescers and eight shell and tube heat exchangers to be installed for the on shore processing plant.

One Subsea has been appointed for the front end engineering design (FEED) study of the project.

Saipem S.P.A, Enppi and Petrojet have been appointed as the contractors for the project.

On April 22, 2016, Salzgitter Mannesmann International, a subsidiary of Salzgitter Group; EUROPIPE; and Mülheim an der Ruhr, a joint venture of the Salzgitter Group and AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke were awarded a contract to supply approximately 227km-long and 660mm diameter pipelines for the project.

On June 6, 2016, Aker Solutions was awarded US$122 million contract for the supply of 180 km of steel tube umbilicals that will connect the project to an offshore control platform.

On June 20, 2016, One Subsea was awarded US$170 million contract for the provision of engineering, procurement and construction services for the project. One Subsea supply the subsea production systems for the first stage. The scope of the contract also includes six horizontal SpoolTree subsea trees, intervention and workover control systems, landing string, tie-in, high-integrity pressure protection system, topside and subsea controls and distribution, water detection and salinity monitoring provided by the AquaWatcher water analysis sensor, and installation and commissioning services.

In October 2016, completed drilling operations in the sixth well.

On October 24, 2016, Dresser-Rand a subsidiary of Siemens Power awarded the contract for the three SGT-400 industrial gas turbines, including associated electrical generators and the contract is expected to be completed by January 2017.

Petrojet completed the manufacturing of offshore platform for the project.

In June 2017, UTEC subsidiary of Acteon secured the contract from Saipem. The scope of this contract includes surface positioning onboard the Saipem operated barges, Bautino and Castoro 10, and associated Anchor Handling Vehicles (AHVs), trench monitoring services and as-trenched surveys utilizing UTEC’s Teledyne Gavia AUVs in water depths ranging from 2.5m to 20m. The contract is expected to be completed by November 2017.

In July 2017, PETROBEL awarded US$900 million engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to Saipem and oil and gas company. The scope of work includes the installation of a 30-inch diameter gas export pipeline, an 8-inch diameter service pipeline, and umbilicals. It also includes EPCI work for the field development in deep water (up to 1,700m) of four wells. Construction works are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.

Construction activities on the onshore gas treatment plant and drilling of wells are underway with the completion of the first phase scheduled by the fourth quarter of 2017.
