Construction is nearing 90 percent completion on the Karan field, Saudi Arabia's first nonassociated gas field in the Arabian Gulf, 160 kilometers north of the our Dhahran headquarters. Nonassociated gas fields do not have an associated oil column, and therefore, can be accessed without producing oil. The Karan field is being developed to meet the Kingdom's increasing demand for sales gas, industrial feedstock, water desalination and electric power generation. The field was discovered by Saudi Aramco in 2006 when the Karan-6 well drilled into deeper formations, finding gas in the Khuff carbonate reservoirs laid down from 200 to 299 million years ago in the Permian and Triassic periods. The Karan field is designed to produce 1.8 billion scfd of raw dry gas.
