Petrofac has announced that it has secured a contract to support the development of a flared gas recovery project in the Sultanate, citing Oman Observer.
It was one of three engineering contracts awarded to the company by clients in the Sultanate, as well as Libya, Petrofac clarified.
Petrofac said that it will support Flare to Value LLC (F2V) in Oman by producing a basic engineering package to recover gas that is currently flared at three onshore locations, adding that it will focus on the fast-track execution of constructable, operable, and standardized solutions that maximize modularization and minimize interruptions to ongoing operations.
Flared gas recovery and conversion to energy is a major initiative in the Sultanate, driven by a desire to capture waste gas volumes before they are flared, with the goal of generating electricity to power nearby oilfield operations.
It is worth mentioning that Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) is at the forefront of this initiative, as are a number of operators, who are also keen on reducing harmful gas emissions and their resulting impact on the environment.
