Saudi Aramco has invited developers to submit bids for a planned public-private partnership (PPP) water project at Zuluf in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia.
Developers have until 31 October to submit proposals for the project. The project is planned to have an initial capacity of 185,000 cubic metres a day (cm/d).
The water treatment plant will reinject treated water into the Zuluf field.
According to sources close to the project, the Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) has been appointed as financial adviser, with White & Case and ILF Consulting Engineers appointed as legal and technical consultants respectively.
The water treatment plant will treat water from the Zuluf oil field, before reinjecting the water back into the oil field.
Saudi Aramco is also planning to develop a reverse osmosis (RO) desalination plant and independent sewage treatment plant (ISTP) at the Zuluf oil fields.
In 2020, a consortium of Japan’s Marubeni Corporation was awarded a contract from Saudi Aramco to develop a steam and power plant and desalination plant at the oil major’s Marjan oil and gas field.
