Italy's Techint Engineering and Construction has won a $387.8 million contract to build housing for workers at the Zubair oil field, reports Fox Business.
Techint will build a village for workers and a regional office for operating partners in the field, the Iraqi council of ministers said, adding that work in the project would take 30 months to finish.
It isn't known which other companies competed with Techint to win the project.
In September, the cabinet approved a $358.8 million contract with Italy’s SICIM and Dubai-based Drake and Scull to lay pipelines at the Zubair field.
