Petrofac wins $1.2bn BP deal in Oman
Company to complete biggest upstream project in Oman by 2017
Petrofac has been awarded a $1.2bn contract by BP to build a new central processing facility at the Khazzan gas project in Oman.
The engineering, procurement and construction contract will see it build a plant with two process trains which each have a capacity of 525 mn m3 of gas per day, plus a condensate processing system, power generating plant, water treatment system and other infrastructure. It is set to complete by 2017.
Subramanian Sarma, managing director of Petrofac's onshore engineering & construction business, said: "Petrofac has executed a large number of projects for BP across many aspects of our business and we are delighted to be supporting them on this pioneering project at Khazzan, the largest new upstream project in Oman.
" We have a very strong record for project execution in Oman with this project representing Petrofac's eighth EPC contract in the Sultanate and follows the recent award of the $2.1bn Sohar refinery improvement project in November."
He added that it would work to recruit Omanis and use local supply chains in the building of its facility.
