Petrofac Awarded Contract for Khazzan Phase 2 in Oman
Petrofac has been awarded a lump-sum contract worth approximately $800 million by BP for the Phase 2 central processing facility (CPF) at the Khazzan Phase 2 (Ghazeer) gas development in the Sultanate of Oman. This follows the $1.4-billion Phase 1 CPF Khazzan project, awarded to Petrofac in February 2014, which celebrated first gas on Sept. 22 this year.
The project comprises the addition of a third gas train with a capacity for nominally handling 500 MMscfd, which will help drive increased total production capacity from the CPF to 1,500 MMscfd. The Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) scope of work also includes liquid and compression trains and associated infrastructure, as well as brownfield work associated with connecting the Phase 1 and 2 facilities.
BP Oman is lead partner in the Khazzan project with a 60% interest. Oman Oil Company Exploration & Production holds 40%.
