These contracts include a $1.2 billion contract in Oman’s Khazzan gas field, a $1.7 billion gain as part of a consortium delivering $3.7 billion of work on the Kuwait Clean Fuels Project, added to a $970 million gas-treatment facility in Algeria. Moreover, Petrofac has agreed to capacity enhancements at the Upper Zakum field in Abu Dhabi.

The Company had reported a revenue and net profit drop during the first half of 2014 to $2.5 billion and $136 million, respectively, compared to $2.8 billion $243 million, respectively, during the same period in 2013.
