UK Based Petrofac lands $200m power deal in Kuwait

New Power Stations

Ptrofac has been awarded a $200m engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build a new power distribution network in north Kuwait.

The UK-headquartered company will build three new substations and lay around 900km of buried cable to connect the stations. Once complete, the facilities will provide a more robust power supply to support the development of the onshore oil fields in North Kuwait.

It said that it won the contract via a competitive tender and that the work will take two years to complete.

Marwan Chedid, chief executive of Petrofac’s Engineering, Construction, Operations & Maintenance (ECOM) division, said: “Petrofac has a well-established local presence in Kuwait. This latest award is our eighth EPC project for KOC. It builds on a long history of working together successfully and we look forward to again proving our delivery capability to KOC through this contract.”
