Project Current Status

Qatargas has awarded a contract worth approximately $4.5 billion to Saipem for the North Field Production Sustainability Offshore Compression Project – EPC 2. The contract scope encompasses the engineering, procurement, fabrication and installation of two offshore natural gas compression complexes aimed at sustaining the production of the North Field, including two of the largest fixed steel jacket compression platforms ever built, flare platforms, interconnecting bridges, living quarters and interface modules. (October 2022)

Project History
  • Qatargas has issued the EPCI tender for the $1bn second package, which entails installation of pipeline infrastructure at the North Field. The bid submission date is 30 September, 2020. (July 2020)
  • Saipem has secured a letter of intent from Qatargas for the contractual package for offshore export pipelines and related onshore works of the North Field Production Sustainability Pipelines Project. The scope of work on the package involves installation of five segments of subsea pipelines of 32 inches and 38 inches. (March 2021)
  • QP has issued a Letter of Award to Saipem of Italy for a new contract worth over $1 billion for the NFPS project. The additional contract (“EPCL” package) entails the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation (EPCI) of offshore export trunklines and related onshore tie-in works and is part of the development of the North Field production plateau, which also includes the EPCI of offshore facilities (“EPCO” package) previously awarded to Saipem. The scope of work for this award (EPCL package) includes three export trunklines starting from their respective offshore platforms to the Qatargas North and South Plants in Ras Laffan Industrial City for a total length of almost 300 km, as well as associated onshore tie-in works and brownfield activities on existing onshore and offshore facilities. Pipelaying operations will be executed by the DE HE and Saipem Endeavour vessels. Saipem will enhance the overall project execution, comprising both EPCO and EPCL scope of work, by combining relevant planned schedules and project management and will start activities immediately. (April 2021)
  • Qatargas has awarded a contract to Saipem of Italy for additional scope of work worth $350 million within the North Field Production Sustainability Offshore Project (EPCO package). The additional scope of work of the two options is related to rerouting of the hydrocarbons from existing wellhead platform through the new facilities, due to existing pipeline being decommissioned. The activities to be carried out comprise the construction of two additional riser platforms, two additional connecting bridges with existing wellhead platforms, two corrosion resistant carbon steel cladded intra-field pipelines with a length of 13 km overall and decommissioning of existing pipeline. Works associated with the exercise of the options will be fully integrated with the project activities of two contract awards announced earlier this year, the North Field Production Sustainability Offshore and the North Field Production Sustainability Pipeline, which are both part of the strategic development of the North Field production plateau. (April 2021)
  • Qatargas has invited bids for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract of the gas pipeline package. Last date to submit bids is 30 March, 2022. The contract scope includes the EPCI of fuel gas pipelines and fibre optic cable networks. It comprises two 32-inch carbon steel trunk lines from onshore to a key offshore facility with interconnecting lines, totaling up to 190 kilometres. The work also involves an onshore fuel gas tie-in from QatarEnergy’s gas grid and the hook-up of associated facilities. (February 2022)

Project Scope

QatarEnergy has undertaken the North Field Production Sustainability (NFPS) project to sustain long-term gas production from the North Field, the mammoth gas resource in the Gulf’s waters that it shares with Iran.

 

The NFPS megaproject has been divided into two packages.

 

The package 2 scope entails installation of pipeline infrastructure at the North Field. The scope of work on the package involves installation of five segments of subsea pipelines of 32 inches and 38 inches.

 

The operator is pressing ahead with the NFPS project in parallel with its $20bn-plus North Field Expansion (NFE) megaproject, which aims to raise liquefied natural gas (LNG) production from the asset from 77.5 million tonnes per year (tpy) at present to 126 million tpy, in two phases, by 2028.

Project Structure:
The project is being managed and operated by Qatargas, who has been entrusted to execute this mega-project on behalf of QatarEnergy, formerly Qatar Petroleum (QP).
