Petrofac, a leading provider of oilfield services to the international oil and gas industry, has been awarded two contracts, together worth around $300 million through Petroleum Development Oman (PDO).
The first is a direct engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for PDO’s Marmul Main Production Station (MMPS) – Gas Compression project. The scope of work for the 30-month, lump-sum turnkey contract includes engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, start-up and initial operational support.
Located at Marmul in the South of Oman, approximately 800 km from Muscat, new facility aims to eliminate permanent flaring and manage associated gas. The work includes gas recovery and booster compressors, gas sweetening, dehydration and other units, utility systems and modification of existing facilities.
The second is a project delivery contract with Petrofac’s partner and main PDO contract holder, Arabian Industries Projects, for selected PDO concession areas in the north of Oman. The scope of this seven-year contract is for provision of reimbursable engineering services, integrated project support and management services, and has an option to extend for three years.
In line with the main objectives of the integrated project services part of this contract, Petrofac will ensure the effective management, control, execution and documentation of changes and additions to production facilities through specific technical studies related to concept development, front-end engineering design (FEED) and detailed design.
Elie Lahoud, Chief Operating Officer – Engineering & Construction, said: “Petrofac has a significant track record in Oman and PDO are a longstanding client. We look forward to building on our strong relationship through these latest contract awards. Both will be delivered by our teams in the sultanate, with the focus on safety, maximising local and sustainable delivery, and generating In-Country Value.”
Petrofac has been serving Oman’s energy industries for more than 30 years and during this time has established a multi discipline engineering and project execution office in Muscat, invested $30 million in a state-of-the-art technical training centre with its partner Takatuf Petrofac Oman (TPO), developed a highly capable workforce, with over 30 per cent Omanisation in the sultanate.
