Burullus is a joint venture company and developer of Egypt’s first deepwater development in the Mediterranean Sea. In 1999, the original joint venture company, comprised of BG Egypt, Egyptian General Petroleum Company (EGPC) and Edison Gas (who subsequently sold its share to Petronas Carigali), chose INTECSEA to undertake a FEED study for the WDDM prospect. The field extends from water depths of ~300m to 1050m. The biggest challenges the project initially faced were the lack of deepwater development experience in the region and the lack of infrastructure required for such a development. Since those early days, INTECSEA has continually worked alongside Burullus Gas through nine phases of field development and expansion. The initial eight wells in the development have grown to a committed 60 wells today, with an additional nine wells expected as part of the next phase (Phase IXb). INTECSEA has been responsible for the conceptual design, Front End Engineering Design (FEED), construction assistance and technical assurance for all phases of the WDDM development to date, and is currently supplying a Technical Assurance support team to Burullus on the latest Phase IXa development and carrying out the Phase IXb Pre-FEED project in parallel.
