Gallaf 3 is an integrated jacket and topside development project located in the Al‐Shaheen field. It is QATAR’s largest oil field. The scope of Gallaf 3 is to develop a new offshore oil field and integrate it into the existing Al‐Shaheen facilities.

Thirty‐three platforms, including five production hubs, are installed in the Al‐Shaheen field. These are spread over nine different areas across the field.

In June 2021, PTSC M&C landed a contract from North Oil Company for Package 5 of the Gallaf development. The Package 5 work scope involves the “detailed design, procurement, construction, pre-commissioning, commissioning, loadout, sea-fastening, transportation and installation, hook-up and offshore commissioning” of the offshore facilities. This EPCI package includes two wellhead platforms with a total weight up to 19,000 tonnes, PTSC earlier said.

In Dec 2021, PTSC M&C continue landed a contract from North Oil Company for Package 6 of the Gallaf development. This package includes  New GE Central Process Platform Jacket and associated piles, topsides, bridge, and offshore integration works with existing host platforms.

PetroVietnam Technical Services Corporation Mechanical & Construction (PTSC M&C) will carry out all the works at Vung Tau city’s PTSC Mechanical & Construction yard and at the Al Shaheen field situated offshore in Qatar.
