Riyadh – State-run Saudi Aramco on Wednesday has awarded a contract for establishing a permanent communications system in Haradh field to Networks & System Integration S.A. Co. Ltd. (NESIC Saudi Arabia).
This project is considered part of Aramco's programme to develop gas laboratories as gas compression development aims at enhancing improvement of gas production in Haradh and Hawiyah fields, the world's largest oil producer said in a statement.
The deal entails establishing permanent communications infrastructure and services, engineering, and procurement, including SCADA-RTU Systems and backbone connection, the state-owned crude producer noted, giving no further details on the contract's value.
“Expanding natural gas production and supply is central to key Saudi Aramco objectives, including diversifying the Kingdom’s energy mix and reducing dependence on oil for domestic needs such as power generation with a clean energy source,” Saudi Aramco's vice president of project management Fahad Al-Helal said.
The agreement will contribute to raising Haradh field's total gas production by more than one billion standard cubic feet per day, Helal added.
