Jacobs Engineering Group said it was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract by BP for the Phase 2 of the Khazzan Project in Oman.

Under the terms of the three-year contract, Jacobs said it will provide EPCM services in support of the project, including the ongoing expansion of the gas gathering system, wellsite facilities and export pipelines, it said in a statement.

”We are committed to continuing our relationship with BP through the next development phase of this world-scale gas project,” said Jacobs petroleum and chemicals president Vinayak Pai. “Upon completion of the project, this field has the potential to produce gas for Oman for decades to come and simultaneously sets the stage for knowledge transfer and Omanisation.”

Khazzan is considered to be one of the biggest tight gas projects in the Middle East and Phase 1 is expected to develop approximately seven trillion standard cubic feet of gas, deliver plateau production of one billion standard cubic feet of gas per day and 25,000 barrels of gas condensate per day.

In September 2017, a significant milestone was reached when Phase 1 of the BP Khazzan Project achieved first gas ahead of schedule. Jacobs delivered EPCM services for the process and infrastructure work during the first phase of this green-field project, through its global integrated delivery model, utilising knowledge from a diverse group of employees, as well as local construction suppliers.
