Petrofac has won a US$1.2 billion lump-sum EPC contract from In Salah Gas, co-owned by Sonatrach, BP and Statoil, to develop the Garet el Befinat, Hasi Moumene, In Salah and Gour Mochmound fields in Algeria.

Petrofac will provide a new central production and gas gathering facility with the capacity to produce 16.8 MMcm/d, associated permanent camps and approximately 300-km of pipelines for gas collection from the infield wells and export to the existing Krechba facility. Completion is scheduled in 2014.

Petrofac also won a US$280 million contract from Malaysia’s Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd for development of the SEPAT offshore early production system on the country’s east coast. The contract covers engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of a mobile offshore production unit (MOPU) in 65 meters of water, a floating storage and offloading (FSO) facility for the early production of approximately 20,000 bopd, and all interconnecting subsea pipelines.

Local partners supporting Petrofac on this project are Kencana HL, which will add all the processing equipment to the MOPU, and BumiArmada /which will supply and install the FSO. The Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) work for the project was carried out in Petrofac’s specialist FEED office in Woking, UK.
