Petrofac has received a provision letter of award for a US$600 million engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a project in Algeria.
Algerian government-owned company Sonatrach, responsible for exploring the country’s hydrocarbon resource opportunities, awarded Petrofac the provisional EPC contract for its Tinhert Field Development Project.
The three-year contract comprises the delivery of an inlet separation and compression centre in Algerian industrial village Ohanet, a 400 km pipeline network connecting 36 wells, as well as commissioning, start-up and facility performance testing works.
“This award builds on Petrofac’s significant track record in Algeria where we have been working in support of the country’s oil and gas production for more than two decades,” said Petrofac Group Managing Director, Engineering and Construction ES Sathyanarayanan.
“We have continued to grow our presence in-country through a number of major EPC and engineering services contracts with Sonatrach, including the Alrar and Reggane projects that commenced production this year, and look forward to deploying our expertise to deliver this project with operational excellence and safe project execution at the core of our approach.”
Formal contract signing is expected to take place in September 2018.
