Petrofac has been awarded a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) modification contract by South Korea Gas Corp.’s (KOGAS) unit for its Nasiriya Gas Treatment Plant in southern Iraq.
The London-headquartered oilfield services firm said its scope of work includes the modification and application of an existing field design to meet the needs of the Nasiriya GTP, and an estimation for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) costs in line with the revised design requirements.
Kogas won a milti-billion contract in 2011 to develop the Akkas gas field in western Iraq. It has operatorship and a 75 per cent interest in the field with Iraq’s National Oil Company holding the rest. Kogas plans to produce about 400,000 Mcf/day for more than 13 years from Akkas.
“KOGAS is a new client for us in a core market and we look forward to further developing our relationship through the successful delivery of this scope,” said Steve Webber, senior vice president, Engineering & Production Services East at Petrofac.
“Throughout the project, we will provide a robust FEED package for the execution of the Nasiriya GTP in alignment with KOGAS’ expectations, to ensure that it can maximise the total value of the field.”
