he main article should focus on the Khazzan gas project in Oman and the technical challenge of unlocking tight gas and mobilizing a major project
I work for BP in the Middle East, and I have been assigned to write an article on the biggest BP project in the Middle East – which is Khazzan. The government has just signed the agreement with BP allowing for full field development and the mobilizing of this project. Therefore, the main article should focus on the Khazzan gas project in Oman and the technical challenges of unlocking tight gas and mobilizing a major project, whilst doing it safely. With a strong angle in it on human resource devleopment – and building an Omani national workforce. I have spent a full week in Oman, with two full days on the field in the middle of the desert, and I have in that time conducted almost 18 interviews. I am going to upload all the interviews that I’ve done as well as a press release about the agreement that has been signed very recently. Feel free to branch out and do a little more research on your own (especially in terms of Oman and the economic factor of this project), but the material in these interviews is crucial. Use a few quotes if needed as well. I have created a simple outline of my idea on how the article should flow:
Intro on Oman (the country, economy, etc.)
Intro on the project Khazzan
Signing the agreement and what this means to Oman and Omanis and BP
The Extended Well Test (EWT) facility being decommissioned now
Technicalities of the project (horizontal fracturing/drilling)
Quotes from people
Workforce – Omani Nationals – Challenger programme
Conclude with how this is a multi-decade project and the future of Oman
I am going to upload all the interviews as well as two similar articles on Oman that were published in the same magazine. DO NOT PLAGIARIZE or USE LINES FROM THE ARTICLES! Simply use them as an idea on the writing style of the article and more information on Oman if needed, you can be creative in how you write it.
Please let me know if you need any more information. It is quite a straightforward article, 2500 words – No need for a bibliography at the end – about the project in Oman called Khazzan and BP and how it all ties together and what it brings to the Oman economy and the Omani people etc. I’ve been given this assignment very suddenly at work and my wedding is in 2 weeks so I’ve had no time to wrap my head around anything and need this by Sunday! Thank you so much.
