The new planned gas separation plant is part of Aramco's scheme to develop unconventional gas resources at South Ghawar area.

Project Scope
The scope of the project involves a grassroots gas separation plant that will cover gathering well fluid from wells spread across the Mazalij and Mihwaz fields using a system of new pipelines. Also, the trunk lines will be routed to the new gas separation plant, to be located in the center of the development area, where the well fluid shall be separated into three components: gas, condensate, and produced water and the raw gas and condensate shall be processed and transmitted to the Haradh gas plant. In addition, the produced water shall be sent through a pipeline to disposal wells located in areas adjacent to the gas separation plant Associated facilities and the objective of the facility will be met by executing multiple contract packages. Further, the project will include a TEG dehydration package is a liquid desiccant technology for the removal of both water and CO2 from natural gas, thus preventing corrosion problems in downstream processes and equipment. Linxon’s scope of work in this project includes reinforcement of the existing substations to install 380 kV and 230 kV GIS breakers, hybrid GIS and reactors.

Project Status
As of August 2023, Arabian Stream for Electrical Contracting (ASEC) is testing and commissioning the control, protection, MCCs, and switchgear systems at the new 230/13.8 kV GIS substation of the South Ghawar gas separation plant.

Project Finance
