Petrofac Awarded Kauther Gas Field Depletion-compression Project

Petrofac Petrofac has been awarded a contract worth more than US$350 million for the Kauther gas-field depletion-compression project. The contract was awarded on behalf of the Government of Oman by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), which has been developing the Sultanate's gas fields on behalf of the Government since 1978.

Petrofac will undertake the engineering, procurement and construction of the gas compression system, and associated facilities at the Kauther gas plant, in addition to undertaking the commissioning and six months of initial operations.

The project follows the successful completion of the Kauther gas plant in 2007, which Petrofac built on an EPC basis for PDO, including commissioning and operations. In early 2008, Petrofac was asked to carry out the front end engineering and design (FEED) for the gas depletion-compression project and then invited to submit a commercial proposal for the EPC on a negotiated basis.
