In order to to meet Saudi Arabia‘s growing demand for gas, state-owned Saudi Aramco developed the das Karan Gasfeld in Khursaniyah.
The project is divided into an offshore and onshore package and comprises the construction of three main facilities: gas processing facility at the Manifa facility, platforms and power generation units, and subsea pipeline. The Karan Field produces 50 million m³ gas/day. For this project Dillinger delivered approximately 3,800 t to different customers. A vessel which was fabricated for this project from Dillinger plates is a so-called slug catcher. Slugcatcher is the name of a unit in the gas refinery or petroleum industry in which slugs at the outlet of pipelines are separeted.
