A. GENERAL

1. SCOPE

1.1 Background

RWE Dea Egypt has discovered seven natural gas reserves in the Disouq Concession within
the onshore Nile Delta, starting in 2008, as shown on the concession map below. Further
exploration in the concession is ongoing. RWE Dea Egypt is the operator of the Concession
with EGAS as a partner.

The objective of this project is to carry out front end engineering design (FEED) services and
prepare a scope of work for Engineering, Installation and Construction tenders (procurement will
be undertaken by RWE Dea) to finally install a natural gas trunk line system to be gathered, led
to a central gas treatment plant where the gas shall be treated to achieve sales gas quality and
send to the gas pipeline infrastructure at the boundaries of the Disouq Concession.
The selected development comprises a central gas treatment site near NSG-1x, where the gas
is collected, treated by means of Low Temperature Separation utilizing the Joule Thomson
effect, and compressed for export. Treated gas is exported via a 16 export pipeline directly into
the GASCO NTS pipeline.
The well fluids from the directly routed wells and the trunk line are fed to a common inlet
separator at the central plant. All gases and liquids will be separated and processed on the
central treatment site into sales gas, stabilized condensate, and free production water.
Treatment of gas is carried out in two trains, while treatment of condensate is in a single train.
Three trains of sales gas compression are installed. During FEED investigation shall clarify, if
the installation of front end booster compressors is more advantageous compared to this
concept.
Fuel gas for the gas engine drives is taken from the suction of the sales gas compressors.

protected during treatment and shall be checked after heat treatment and/or
fabrication for freedom from warpage, distortion, oxidation and unbroken
serrations.

9.2.4 (New) In case heat treatment of tube sheets is required, final tube-hole sizing
shall be attained by reaming after heat treatment.

9.2.5 (New) Headers that require heat treatment to enhance corrosion resistance or
mechanical properties shall receive these heat treatments when called for in the
REQUISITION or material specification, or when these are a requirement of the
material manufacturer.

9.2.6 (New) SUPPLIER shall notify BUYER of any header of such configuration that
high stresses may be developed in welds because of restraint. BUYER's
