Petrofac secures $600M contract for Oman gas project
Jan 11, 2017 – Petrofac, a provider of oilfield services, has secured a contract worth nearly $600M to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services on the Salalah LPG extraction project in Oman.
The contract has been awarded by Salalah LPG SFZCO (SLPG), a wholly owned subsidiary of Oman Oil Facilities Development Company (OOFDC).
The scope of the 36-month contract will include the construction of the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) unit and associated facilities, including the tie-ins to existing pipeline infrastructure, together with LPG storage and jetty facilities at the Port of Salalah.
Petrofac’s chief operating officer Marwan Chedid said: “This contract is our eleventh in the Sultanate and reinforces our commitment to Oman where we have been present since 1988.
“This project will further support our commitment to increase in-country value. We will continue to maintain strong focus on this aspect of our delivery, particularly by engaging the local supply chain and recruiting local resources. We are very much looking forward to growing and strengthening our team working alongside OOFDC to deliver this project.”
The EPC contract will be triggered when SLPG issues a Notice To Proceed (NTP) to Petrofac.
