Middle East & Africa: Production
Saudi Arabia plans to boost its non-associated gas production even further by expanding the capacities of the Hawiyah and Haradh processing plants.
The plan is in line with the kingdom’s aim of reducing its reliance on associated gas. The expansion projects are estimated to cost around $4 billion, and bidding for the development contracts is likely to start in March. The two projects are part of Ghawar – the world’s largest conventional onshore oilfield. Most of the gas from the field is associated with oil production, but the field also produces non-associated gas.
