Petrofac, a leading global provider of oilfield services, has secured a new multi-million-dollar engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) services contract from Tatweer Petroleum to support their gas distribution network project in Bahrain.
The EPCC scope of work includes high pressure gas pipelines and fibre optic cabling, said the statement from Petrofac. The underground pipelines will run through sections onshore and offshore below the seabed in support of gas supply to the Kingdom and will be designed for full interchangeability, it added.
A major player in the region’s energy sector, Petrofac has been present in Bahrain since 2015, following the award of an EPCC contract to supply a new gas dehydration facility by Tatweer Petroleum. The project was successfully completed in 2018, and additional scope of work was then secured by Petrofac for the engineering, procurement, and construction of several gas wells, to be connected to the facility.
In June last year, Petrofac was awarded a new multi-million dollar EPCC contract by Tatweer Petroleum for an upstream gas project that includes well hook-ups, associated pipelines, and tie-ins for several new gas wells that the company is planning to drill as part of its gas delivery strategy in the Bahrain Field
