Kharg Onshore processing plants de-bottlenecking and FEED package preparation

The Kharg Island crude oil processing facilities are located within Iranian territorial waters of the Persian GulfThe facilities consist of crude oil / gas / water separation units, sweetening (Sulphur removal)units, RVP stabilization units, desalting units and associated utilities
Oil and gas are produced in the Kharg district by Aboozar and Foroozan offshore production complex and Dorood offshore & onshore wells
There are four existing onshore oil processing facilities including Aboozar, Foroozan, Dorood-1 and Dorood-2 which are considered as part of the project
Various options are investigated during the Conceptual Engineering phase, with regard to improving the future production efficiency and raising the product specification standards of the stabilized crude oil product from Kharg Island
Conceptual studies are carried out for different options to evaluate expected performance so that a decision could be made regarding which option would best meet the future production quality, recovery efficiency and HSE challenges
The complete Basic Engineering and EPC tender documents are prepared based on the selected option of the conceptual study
