  • WDDM development expands power and hydraulic systems

    M. Farouk and M. Gaber

    The West Delta Deep Marine (WDDM) concession in the deep water offshore Egypt’s Nile Delta contains three main development areas: Scarab/Saffron, Simian/Sienna and Sapphire Fields, each with up to eight Phase I wells in 400-1,200 m water depth. Wells at each field are connected to a Subsea Distribution Assembly (SDA) for control, and to subsea manifolds for gas collection. Each field’s export lines move gas production to the subsea PipeLine End Manifold (PLEM). From the PLEM, two main export lines carry gas to the onshore terminal. Phase IV development is an expansion to both Scarab/Saffron and Simian Fields. There are seven wells to be tied in with the existing Scarab/Saffron Fields that produce via two manifolds and infield pipelines into existing 24-in. and 36-in. offshore pipelines. One well is to be tied into Simian Field. This article describes the challenge Burullus Gas faced to accommodate an additional seven wells into the existing system.
