Total signs $400 mln contract with Globalstroy for Kharyaga phase three
MOSCOW. Feb 25 (Interfax) - France's Total has signed a contract worth $400 million with Globalstroy Engineering for phase three of the Kharyaga production-sharing project, Total said in a statement.
This is the Kharyaga project's biggest contract so far.
Phase three involves bringing new reserves on stream, sustaining daily output of 30,000 barrels a day (1.4 million tonnes of oil per year) and achieving 95% associated gas utilization.
Globalstroy-Engineering will design, procure, supply, build and commission installations for the modernization of the central production facility and will build a technological complex to treat associated gas.
The Kharyaga field's associated gas has high sulfur content and it is thought phase three of the project will also involve building a plant capable of separating this from the gas and producing 5,000 tonnes of granulated sulfur per year. The cost of this plant has been estimated at $200 million.
The contract with Globalstroy enters into effect on March 1, 2011, and will take 26.5 months to complete.
The Kharyaga production-sharing agreement was signed back in 1995.
Total is the project operator with 40%, Russia's Zarubezhneft has 20%, StatoilHydro - 30% and OJSC Nenets Oil Company - 10%.
