The France-based company will provide engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning assistance for this project.

The project will deliver a combination of lean gas, condensate and sour gas through a single 12" export pipeline from Al Khafji Joint Operations (KJO) facilities in Saudi Arabia to Kuwait Oil Company tie-in facility, namely the Intermediate Slug Catcher being built near Al-Ahmadi, Kuwait.

According to Technip, total export pipeline length is 110km, with 4km onshore in Saudi Arabia, followed by 47km offshore and 59km onshore in Kuwait.

The project will be executed by the company’s operating centre in Abu Dhabi and will be completed by the second semester of 2014.
