Qatar Petroleum (QP) announced plans to invest over 40 billion Qatari Riyals (QAR) in the re-development of the existing Bul Hanine offshore oil field located about 120 kilometers to the east of the Qatari coastline.

The project, which is currently at the pre-FEED stage, is one of the largest to be managed and executed by QP. It is designed to prolong the field’s life by countering its production decline and doubling its current oil production rate.

Commenting on the redevelopment plans, H.E. Dr. Mohammed bin Saleh Al-Sada, Minister of Energy and Industry and Chairman of QP, said: “This important project is part of a development and production strategy based on maximum recovery of reserves through the longest possible plateau of sustainable production levels. It will help boost Qatar’s oil production capacity and reinforce its position as a reliable energy provider.”

H.E. Dr. Al-Sada expressed pride in what has been achieved so far in the development of Qatar’s oil & gas fields and assets. He said “Qatar Petroleum’s excellent track record in managing and executing mega projects over the years and the experience it has accumulated throughout will pave the way for the successful execution of this important and strategic project.”

His Excellency pointed out that “the Bul Hanine redevelopment constitutes another step in the utilization of Qatar’s hydrocarbon wealth and is consequently a key element in the implementation of the Qatar National Vision as launched and guided by His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, the Emir of the State of Qatar.”

“In addition to sustaining economic growth and providing financial stability, this re-development is also an important step towards building the capabilities of local resources by providing a unique experience opportunity for Qatari engineers,” H.E. Dr. Al-Sada concluded. 

QP is implementing a redevelopment program for its oil fields, which were originally developed with older technology, in order to ensure steady production levels. Major reservoir and field-wide studies have been undertaken – including seismic surveys – in order to re-assess the reserves and the long-term production prospects for each field. This has been carried out using Improved Oil Recovery Techniques and Full Field Redevelopment Plans, as well as the latest cutting-edge technology and powerful computer modeling and processing.
