Petrofac’s Offshore Projects & Operations business unit has been awarded two major reimbursable contracts in the the Middle East and UKCS

Petrofac has been awarded a contract in Iraq to provide general construction management services to BP Iraq NV (BP) on the Rumaila field near Basra in the south of the country.

“The award builds on an established track record for Petrofac in Iraq, in particular at Rumaila, dating back to 2011,” said Mani Rajapathy, senior vice president, MENA/CIS. “We look forward to sharing in the continued success of the regeneration of Rumaila.”

Petrofac will provide management and personnel to manage brownfield modifications to assist BP – and its partners in the Rumaila Operations Organisation, China National Petroleum Company (CNPC) and South Oil Company – 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 USD 500 mm.

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 kilometres from the Kuwaiti border.

Petrofac has also been awarded a major in the Central North Sea, where Petrofac has been selected to provide engineering and construction support worth up to USD 120 mm for Chevron’s three operated assets – the Captain, Alba, and Erskine platforms.

The contract - awarded under a competitive tender - is for up to three years, plus two one year options. Petrofac will create more than 70 onshore and offshore positions in order to execute and deliver the services.

“We’re delighted to have been selected to support Chevron North Sea Limited with our operationally focused scalable engineering delivery model,” said Walter Thain, senior vice president Europe.

“We share with Chevron an absolute commitment to safe and cost-effective delivery, ultimately enhancing value.”
