Aramco completes Karan gas project
Khobar, September 20, 2012
Saudi Aramco has finished commissioning the remaining two gas processing lines of an expanded treatment plant for Karan, the kingdom's first non-associated gas field, two industry sources said.
Gas from the offshore field will be processed at the Khursaniyah plant through three new production lines, known as trains, each with a capacity of 600 million cubic feet per day (cfd).
In April, Saudi Aramco said it had brought online the first of the three new gas trains. It said then that the other two would be operational in the second quarter of the year, taking processing capacity to the target of 1.8 billion cfd.
Aramco did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment on the successful commissioning of the last two units.-Reuters
