Oil & Gas Refining

Tempa Rossa Oil & Gas Treatment Plant

Country: Italy

Client: Total E&P Italia S.p.A. (Gruppo Total)

Company in charge: Tecnimont - KT Kinetics Technology

The contract, awarded to Tecnimont, foresees the main part of the development plan of the Tempa Rossa oil field in Basilicata.

The contract includes the process units and utilities of the oil center, where 50,000 barrels per day (BOPD) of crude oil is processed and stabilized, in addition to the associated water and gas treatment, the LPG storage center, the surface installations on the wellheads, the connections of the flowlines and pipelines with the Snam Rete Gas network, and the pipeline of the Taranto Refinery.

The project location, in the Gorgoglione mining area, is located in the heart of a region of rich natural landscapes, that holds an archaeological heritage of singular value. Therefore, designing and building an Oil & Gas plant in this environment is a challenge, both in terms of operations safety and environmental protection. Since the beginning of the Tempa Rossa project, Maire Tecnimont has established several initiatives to transfer value to local communities:

  • Vocational training courses for Quantity Surveyors, in collaboration with the Assoil School
  • collaboration project with the comprehensive "16 August 1860" technical school of Corleto Perticara
  • professional development path for local workers

Recent international energy surveys have cited Tempa Rossa as one of the 280 projects that will change the global energy scenario.
