The new facilities at Zirku Island process well fluid production from SARB field development and in addition, process partially de-gassed crude oil received from the Umm Lulu offshore field development.
The SARB Full Field Development Project includes an untapped oil field that would produce prospectively 100,000 barrels per day, during peak production years. Plans called for drilling 51 producer wells, 19 water injector wells, 13 gas injector wells, and three gas producer wells, for a total of 86 wells.
Umm Lulu field production will peak at 120,000 barrels per day. The well fluids produced from the Umm Lulu field go through first stage de-gassing and water separation prior to being pumped to the Zirku plant for further processing, storage, and export.
