Petrofac has also been awarded a major contract in Iraq to provide general construction management services to BP Iraq NV (BP) on the Rumaila field near Basra.
Petrofac will provide management and personnel to manage brownfield modifications to assist BP – and its partners in the Rumaila Operations Organisation (ROO), China National Petroleum Company (CNPC) and South Oil Company (SOC) – in executing its strategy to rapidly and safely increase production from what is one of the world’s largest fields.
The contract, which runs for three years, with an option for further extension of two years, has a potential value of up to $500 million.
Petrofac will provide the overall management and co-ordination of multiple construction projects, including construction management and supervision of work undertaken by third party contractors on the field, 32 km from the Kuwaiti border.
Mani Rajapathy, Senior Vice President, MENA/CIS, said:
“The award builds on an established track record for Petrofac in Iraq, in particular at Rumaila, dating back to 2011. We look forward to sharing in the continued success of the regeneration of Rumaila.”
