    Projects

    Projects is one of the sectors of the engineering department that is paid a great attention because it supports all other departments to achieve its requirements and goals easily and according to the global standards and specially API standards and in time although the time provided to it is limited and critical. 

    Why we start any project?
     
    There are many points that could lead to start a project

    1. The company's expansion, by starting up a new rig.
    2. The company's equipment upgrading, by installing a new equipment.
    3. Modification done to simplify and assist the operation of the rig and make it comply with the global standards, especially API standard.
    4. Problems facing operation or maintenance crew due to breakdowns

    Project planning
    Engineering department does believe that project planning is the key to succeed any project; projects can run on time and interact effectively with both operators and suppliers. Everyone involved understands what is wanted and emerging problems are foreseen (and dealt with) long before they cause damage.

    Projects done

    1. New rigs & Refurbishing old rigs.
    2. Top Drive & new equipment installation.
    3. Equipment overhaul.
    4. In progress projects.

    Tharwa Petroleum Co. A real Egyption Fortune

    Being characterized as the first Egyptian company to carry out upstream activities in the Egyptian market as well as offering petroleum services, Tharwa has kept its outstanding record of achievements since its inauguration in 2004. With the target of competing in the international arena, Atef Abd El Sadek, Tharwa’s Chairman and Managing Director shares its 2007 future plans with Egypt Oil and Gas Newspaper and shed light on its story of success.

    Tharwa was established as a joint stock company on February 2004, it is the first Egyptian Petroleum Company to excite upstream operations with two main goals; E & P and Petroleum Services. The company’s mission is to explore, develop and produce oil and gas domestically within Egypt, regionally and all over the international arena. The company was established at an appropriate time when oil prices were hitting great hikes and Egypt was seeking to increase its oil revenues.

    Tharwa
    's establishment falls within the framework of a comprehensive ministry program to raise revenues from foreign currencies. Could you briefly describe the activities of your company to our readers? which do not have resources locally to execute their work plans and commitment in Exploration activities in Egypt, but also to those companies having aggressive plans. Also, Tharwa has achieved a sizeable profit for the second fiscal year. Concerning, our upcoming future plans; we have dedicated the year 2007 as the year of the first production from our Western Desert Concessions and 2008 as the year of our first production from Mediterranean Sea Concession “Thekah”.

We already take the step to mark out all the bid rounds in Africa and Asia, and have evaluated our chances in order to be ready in the appropriate time. long and not easy. Studies on technical aspects, economics, feasibility and legislation should be prearranged carefully.
