The UK's Petrofac has won a US $477 million (SYP24.5 billion) contract from Petro-Canada to build a gas treatment plant for the Ebla project in Syria.

The Ebla plant will be designed to produce 88 million ft3 of sales gas per day and 150 tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) per day.

Under the agreement, Petrofac will take a 10% stake in the Ebla production-sharing contract.

"This is another significant award in Syria for Petrofac which, taken together with the Jihar gas plant award, provides us with almost $1 billion of work in a country where we have successfully worked on a number of projects," said Maroun Semaan, chief executive, Petrofac Engineering and Construction.

The Ebla gas treatment plant will be located in the Ash Shaer field between Homs and Palmyra.

The initial contract, which will last just over two years, will include all associated facilities and infrastructure, including engineering, procurement and construction, commissioning and start-up assistance of the gas treatment plant, pipelines, gas gathering station flow lines and well sites.

The plant is expected to begin production in 2010.
