June 8, 2016

Frames recently completed the fabrication of 3 LP Wet Crude Separators. The separators will be installed at the new Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) facility Gathering Centre 30, which is located in the north of Kuwait.

In December 2014 Frames was awarded by L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering Ltd. for the supply of the 3 separators. The vessels were fabricated by the Kuwaiti fabricator Heavy Engineering Industries & Shipbuilding Co. The fabrication of the separation internals was done by Frames.

KOC Gathering Centres
Gathering Centre 30 is one of the three new facilities of KOC. The new facilities (GC 29/30/31) will support KOC’s long term strategy for the development of the North Kuwait fields to increase oil production from 700,000 to 1,000,000 BOPD with the next five years. The Gathering Centre facilities will receive crude from Kuwait’s second largest oil field, the Raudhatain which can yield 350,000 – 400,000 BOPD.
Frames will also supply 3 LP Wet Crude Separators for Gathering Centre 31, that was awarded to Frames by Dodsal Engineering and Construction Pte. Ltd.
