SNC LAVALIN TO DRILL TAZERBO WATERWELLS IN LIBYA.
SNC-Lavalin's scope of work will include engineering in the form of a review of technical data, surveys and design of new wells, procurement, as well as construction of new wells.
Great Man-Made River Project
The project objective is to supply 2 million m3/day of water from the Sarir and Tazerbo well fields. This project is for conveying the vast underground water resources beneath the southeastern desert of Libya northward to the coastal belt through huge buried prestressed concrete cylinder pipes of 4000mm diameter and represents one of the first steps in the master plan of Libya's "Green Revolution". Water from Phase I will be pumped from 126 wells at the Sarir Wellfield and 120 wells at the Tazerbo Wellfield. The wellfields are at a higher elevation than their destinations along the coast and therefore the initial flow during Phase I will be by gravity. The bulk of the water will be distributed for irrigation of various agricultural sites. Turnouts located along the Ajdabiya to Sirt and Ajdabiya to Benghazi lines will supply municipalities with water for industrial and domestic consumption.
The SNC-Lavalin Group is a Canadian company listed on the Montr al and Toronto stock exchanges with operations in engineering-construction and manufacturing. The company has some 5,000 employees, offices in 26 countries abroad and current projects in 90 countries.
