Penspen, Dar Al Handasah win Kuwait pipeline deal
As per the $10m contract, the JV will manage the engineering, procurement and construction of the new gas and condensate pipeline of Kuwait Gulf Oil
Penspen and its joint venture with Lebanese project design and consultancy group Dar Al Handasah has been awarded a major project management contract by Kuwait Gulf Oil Company.
The companies are both members of the Dar Group, a multinational network of consulting firms covering a spectrum of specialised design and consultancy services headquartered in Beirut, Lebanon.
As per the $10m contract, the JV will manage the engineering, procurement and construction of the new gas and condensate pipeline of Kuwait Gulf Oil.
The pipeline runs both offshore and onshore from Khafji in Saudi Arabia to the final destination of Mina Al Ahmadi in Kuwait.
Penspen-Dar Al Handasah JV is already providing feed and project management services for this pipeline since March 2010.
The project is now at an advanced stage and will be completed under this new contract, which is set to run for 18 months, said a top official.
"We have had a really good relationship with KGOC since we started on the FEED and we look forward to being involved right through to commissioning," said Chris Williams, Penspen’s EVP for project performance.
