Elsewedy Electric KSA received a contract for 1.5 billion SAR to deliver Low Voltage (LV) and Medium Voltage (MV) cables for the Berri Gas Plant Expansion. As part of Saudi Aramco’s Berri Oilfield Augmentation Project, the project entails the building and installation of 20 kilometers of offshore pipelines and 70 kilometers of onshore pipelines.
The Berri gas plant first began operation in 1977 and later added Sulphur recovery trains and new storage tanks to maintain large quantities of gas production by 2004.
With the new expansion, Saudi Aramco has plans to outspread the water injection system of the Berri oilfield and double the capacity to produce 250,000 barrels of the Arabian Light Crude while aiming to reach a maximum sustained crude production capacity at 12 million barrels of oil a day in 2023. The outstanding effort to expand the Berri Gas Plant is one that Elsewedy Electric KSA is proud to be a part of. To ensure optimal performance, the LV and MV cables have been rigorously tested and manufactured to meet the highest industry standards.
The program is said to greatly improve Saudi Aramco’s ability to produce oil and process gas, enhancing both its position as the top integrated energy supplier while meeting the long-term demand for petroleum.
