Head of Offshore Oil Facilities
Presently leading team of 10 engineers overseeing QP EPSA / DPSA Operators (Maersk Oil, Total, Oxy & QPD) producing 500,000 BOPD. Additionally I am managing various major offshore oil field projects, currently at planning and implementation stages of the development. Projects range from couple hundred million dollars to six billion dollars in value.
After conducting Techno-Economical analysis I approved a field development plan (FDP) of three new offshore oil fields projects operated by ARCO/Anadarko (20,000 BOPD), Maersk Oil (300,000 BOPD), and Total Elf (100,000 BOPD).
In 2001, I evaluated and approved a proposal of FDP worth $2 Billion from Maersk Oil for the development of Al Shaheen oil field, which at present producing 350,000 BOPD and 200 mmscfd of high-pressure associated gas. During development I proposed a de-centralizing gas compression plan, which saved over $150 million of CAPEX and made compressed gas available for gas lift, which in turn eliminated the need of high operating cost electric submersible pumps.
Responsible for process and facilities engineering of Oil Field Development Department’s Projects using Hysys and Pipesys Softwares.
Developed a Project Economics Evaluation Model in MS Excel used for economic analysis.Previous to my current designation I was overseeing the North Field (world's largest offshore gas field) projects for production, transportation, processing and liquefaction to LNG. During development of the field I innovated a new concept of transporting total wellhead fluid to onshore reducing CAPEX and OPEX. Now all the projects in North Field are utilizing the concept I developed.
I am a board member of the Al Shaheen Tender Committee Board, which handles $6 Billion of equipment and EPC contracts.
Task force member of an ExxonMobil/QP team leading a gas to liquid - GTL project study. Project was canceled when project costs reached $18 billion.
