Early Production Facilities (EPF)

Early Production Facilities are designed, engineered, installed, commissioned, operated and maintained by SPETCO International for processing and testing sour crude and gas.

SPETCO International’s contribution to the development of hydrocarbon reserves in Kuwait - Early Production Facilities:

  • The theory of an Early Production Facility in Kuwait was conceived to facilitate KOC to produce from the New Jurassic Reservoir. These reservoirs were first discovered in 1996 but KOC was unable to put them into production as the facilities in North Kuwait were not designed for sour services.
  • This prompted SPETCO International to propose the concept of a modular Early Production Facility to KOC, which was accepted by KOC. As a result, the first pilot modular EPF in Kuwait was completed by SPETCO International in 2003.
