Galfar Engineering & Contracting has announced that it has been awarded a $10m deal at the massive new Khazzan gas project being overseen by BP.

The contractor has said that its scope of work includes the construction and commissioning of 26km of 132kV overhead power lines from Petroleum Development Oman's substation to a new switchyard and control building on the site, which it will also build. The lines will be constructed from steel towers on concrete poles.

The Khazzan tight gas project will see around $16bn of investment into one of the biggest onshore gas fields in the world under a 30-year agreement with BP.

Last year, it awarded Jacobs Engineering Group a $2bn deal to deliver process and infrastructure works, and Petrofac a $1.2bn deal to build a central processing facility.
