Petrofac has been awarded an engineering and procurement contract by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) to provide services for its Yibal Khuff project, a field located approximately 350 km south west of Muscat in the Sultanate of Oman.
Under the terms of the four and a half year contract Petrofac will be providing reimbursable detailed engineering, and construction and commissioning management support services and procurement on an incentivised pass-through basis. This will extend throughout construction and during start-up of the integrated oil and sour gas facility.
The total contract value is expected to be around US$ 900 million with around one-quarter of the revenues relating to professional services (engineering, construction and commissioning management).
Development of the field will add to PDO's future oil production whilst the associated gas will be utilised for power generation and enhanced oil recovery developments.
