Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) has awarded Petrofac two contracts worth approximately $300m. The first is a direct engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for PDO’s Marmul Main Production Station (MMPS) – Gas Compression project, while the second is a project delivery contract.
According to a statement, the scope of work for the first, lump-sum turnkey contract spans 30-months and includes EPC, commissioning, start-up and initial operational support. The project is located in Marmul in the South of Oman and 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, project delivery contract is 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 the provision of reimbursable engineering services, integrated project support and management services, and has an option to extend for three years, the statement explained.
“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,” said Elie Lahoud, COO – Engineering & Construction at Petrofac.
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, development of front-end engineering design (FEED) and detailed design, the statement noted.
