A consortium made up of Sonatrach and its two partners PTTEP and PVEP on Monday signed an Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) contract for the completion of a second oil treatment train (CPF) at the Bir Sebaa field, 40 km from Hassi Messaoud, with Italian company Maire Tecnimont.

This project, whose contract was awarded in March 2018 following a call for tenders, constitutes the 2nd phase of development of the Bir Sebaa field which will allow the processing of an additional production of 20,000 barrels / day of oil in order to increase the production of these fields up to 40,000 barrels / day, according to a press release issued by the company.

Under this EPC contract, Maire Tecnimont will provide detailed engineering studies, the supply of equipment and materials, construction as well as commissioning tests.

The project involves the construction of an oil treatment train, associated gas compression unit, gas lift unit, water injection unit for maintaining pressure, a third turbo-generator (18 MW), as well as the connection of 33 wells, 19 of which are oil producers and the remaining 14 water injectors.
