Petrofac has been awarded a $115 million engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for developing and supporting oil extraction from the Qarn Alam generator project in Oman, Pipeline Oil & Gas Magazine reported.

“We are pleased to have secured this second project with PDO under the long-term framework agreement established last year,” Roberto Bertocco, Petrofac’s managing director of EPC, said.

The 36-month contract 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.

“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,” Bertocco added.

The contract marks the latest of Petrofac’s awards in Oman and the second to be secured under the 10-year framework agreement signed in 2017 with PDO. Under the terms of the agreement, all engineering, procurement, and project activities will be operated from Petrofac’s Muscat office.
