Steel Gratings for Upper Zakum 750 Islands Surface Facilities Project
1. Details of the UZ750 Project at Upper Zakum.
The UZ750 project involves the construction of four production artificial islands comprising of a central complex which will house the processing facilities, and the north, south and west satellite platforms.
The first phase of the project involves the development of the offshore facilities. It includes the laying of 240 km of subsea pipelines, 128 km of subsea composite and fibre-optic cables and installing 30,000t of offshore structures such as jackets, riser platforms, flare towers and bridges, and approximately 3,000t of islands modules and bridges. The first phase is scheduled for completion in 2015.
The second phase involves the development of the facilities on the four artificial islands including wellhead control, manifolds, crude oil process facilities, water injection and gas lift, booster gas compression facilities, oil export pumps, power generation and ancillary utilities, and modification of the existing facilities. Up to 22 production modules comprising of a wellhead control and oil processing unit will be constructed as part of the second phase.
The project also involves the construction of accommodation facilities for 2,150 people, supporting buildings, and permanent utilities including recreational areas, a mosque, and operations and drilling offices.
