British firm wins 36-month engineering, procurement and construction contract for Salalah LPG
British oilfield services company Petrofac said it has secured an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract worth nearly $600 million from Salalah LPG for a key liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) extraction project in southern Oman, according to a post on its website.
Salalah LPG is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Oman Oil Facilities Development Company (OOFDC).
According to the 36-month lump sum contract, Petrofac will construct the LPG unit and associated facilities, including tie-ins to existing pipeline infrastructure, together with LPG storage and jetty facilities at the Port of Salalah, the capital of the Sultanate’s southern Dhofar Province.
On the win, group chief operating officer Marwan Chedid said: “This contract is our eleventh in the sultanate and reinforces our commitment to Oman where we have been present since 1988.”
“This project will further support our commitment to increase in-country value. We will continue to maintain strong focus on this aspect of our delivery, particularly by engaging the local supply chain and recruiting local resources,” he added.
