Surface Engineering

We are the domestic leader in building capacity of onshore oil and gas fields. We have the capacity to build surface works to accommodate facilities with 20 Mt/a oil production capacity and 10 bcm/a gas production capacity. In addition, we have established technology packages of surface engineering in conventional oil and gas fields, in high water cut, low permeability, ultra heavy and high condensate content oil fields, and in high pressure, high sulfur content, and high yield gas fields. As well as, we have been contracted and accomplished surface works for a number of oil and gas fields in China, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Chad, UAE and Iraq etc.

We have standardized surface engineering design in oil and gas fields in the domestic market by rolling out standardized and modular design, and enhancing the engineering design, construction quality, material procurement, engineering supervision, and matching construction.

Halfaya Project

The development and construction of Hafaya was carried out in three phases. In June 2012, Phase I was completed and put into production with an annual output of 5 million tons; in August 2014, Phase II was put into operation with an annual capacity of 10 million tons; and on May 24, 2017, the construction of Phase III was officially commenced including the Central Processing Facility (CPF3) and supporting system and was put into operation on December 12, 2018, adding a crude oil processing capacity of 200,000 barrels per day.

Phase II compression project of Samandepe gas field

Starting on December 30, 2016, the project included the construction of one compression station, the renovation of two gas gathering stations and the construction of linking pipelines. With a total installed capacity of 43MW, the thirteen compressor units could increase feed gas by 9.2 million cubic meters per day. The Phase II compression project of Samandepe gas field of Block A in the Bagtyiarlyk Contract Areaof CNPC Amu Darya River Company became operational on October 29, 2018.
