Petrofac has signed a contract worth of $600 million with Salalah LPG SFZCO (SLPG), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oman Oil Facilities Development Company LLC (OOFDC), to undertake the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of its Salalah LPG extraction project in the southern part of Oman.
Under the terms of the 36-month lump sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract, which will be triggered when Salalah LPG issues to Petrofac the notice to proceed (NTP), Petrofac’s scope of work will include construction of the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) unit and associated facilities, including tie-ins to existing pipeline infrastructure, together with LPG storage and jetty facilities at the Port of Salalah.
“This contract is our eleventh in the Sultanate and reinforces our commitment to Oman where we have been present since 1988,” said Marwan Chedid, Petrofac Group chief operating officer.
“This project will further support our commitment to increase in-country value. We will continue to maintain strong focus on this aspect of our delivery, particularly by engaging the local supply chain and recruiting local resources. We are very much looking forward to growing and strengthening our team working alongside Oman Oil Facilities Development to deliver this project.”
