Petrofac has been awarded a contract worth around $115mn for the development of the Qarn Alam Co-Generation Project, located 350 kilometres southwest of Muscat, Oman.
This is the latest in a series of awards for Petrofac in Oman and the second to be secured under a landmark 10-year framework agreement with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), signed in 2017 to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) support services for PDO’s major oil and gas projects.
The 36-month project scope includes installation and commissioning support for a gas turbine generator package with one heat recovery steam generator at the power plant which was built to support oil extraction in Oman’s central region. Engineering, procurement and project management activities will be undertaken from Petrofac’s Muscat office.
“We are pleased to have secured this second project with PDO under the long-term framework agreement established last year," said Roberto Bertocco, managing director of EPCm for Petrofac. “Petrofac has been working in Oman for more than 30 years. Local delivery remains key and we will continue to invest in Omani content to drive maximum in-country value. This is particularly important as we continue to grow our office in Muscat through the delivery of major projects in the Sultanate.”
