Nov 01, 2004 01:00 AM

The upper part of the off shore rig (Sabratha) was installed.
“The rig regarded one of the main components of the mega strategic West of Great Jamahiriya Gas Project," a report said adding "through which 1,000 mm cf of natural gas and nearly 65 thousand barrel of crude oil and densities would be produced daily."

The installation process was attended by the chairman and members of the Board of the ENI international Gas company, Great Jamahiriya branch, a number of experts and technicians working in the project as well as a number of Libyan oil engineers.
Chairman of the Board of ENI, Eng. Foad Krekshi told that the upper part installed on the structure of Sabrata rig weighs 12,000 tons, it is 80 by 50 meters and 50 meters high, and consists of five floors. It was installed by a special forklift. The operation is considered the first of its kind in the world in lifting such weights.

"The work achieved today considered the main pillar of the second stage of the West of Great Jamahiriya Gas Project. Having the rig fixed earlier, the installation of this Korean manufactured component which provides for the treatment of gas, and condensates, is complementary to the previous installation.”
“The rig would be connected to 26 producing wells, through which liquids will be separated from gas, and be transported through Sea pipelines to the industrial complex in Mellitah, where the final treatment takes place and impurities will be removed. The production is to satisfy the local market, and export the surplus to the European market through the under the sea pipeline linking Great Jamahiriya with Italy,” he added.

"One of the objectives of the project was to provide an opportunity to develop other discoveries in the region, as the gas produced by the 20 km away al-Bouri oil field which production started in 1988 would be utilized by this new rig,” he explained. "The rig will be ready next June to receive and produce gas and condensates with a production capacity of 600 mm cf of pure gas and about 35,000 barrels of condensates, besides 400 mm cf of gas and 30,000 barrels of crude oil,” he added.
"The Sabrata off shore rig was installed at the beginning of this month 180 meters deep into the sea, at its location in Gas of the Sea of Peace field, 110 km north west of Tripoli to constitute the pillar of West of Great Jamahiriya Gas Project, viewed as further to the enormous great achievements realized to the Libyan people by the great al Fateh Revolution."
