UAE-based energy services contractor Lamprell has secured an engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning contract (EPIC) from Sharjah National Oil Corporation (SNOC) for the Mahani gas and condensate field in Sharjah.

The company didn't disclose the value of the contract but said the "medium-sized" EPIC contract was awarded to its site services business and is scheduled for completion by early 2021.

Lamprell defines a medium-sized contract as between $6 million and $50 million.

The scope of work is specific to the Mahani Extended Well Test project and includes hook-up and installation at the well, existing systems upgrade, associated tie-ins and a new 25 km export pipeline, the statement said.

The discovery of the onshore Mahani field was announced by SNOC and its partner Eni at the end of January 2020.

In March, Reuters reported that startup of production at Mahani would be delayed by up to two months due to the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

SNOC had told Zawya in March that it has put on hold its floating Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) storage terminal at Hamriyah Port while it completes the evaluation of the size of the Mahani field.
