Petrofac said it was awarded a US$265 million contract by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for the development of the third phase of Marmul field in southern Oman.
Marmul field is a chemical enhanced oil recovery (EOR) project that uses polymer for heavy crude recovery.
The Petrofac contract for Marmul Polymer Phase 3 (MPP3) involves engineering, procurement and construction support for the extension of off-plot and on-plot production facilities associated with around 500 producing and 75 injector wells, the British engineering company said in a statement.
It said this was the first award to be secured under a 10-year Framework Agreement with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) signed in 2017, which enables Petrofac to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EP+Cm) support services for PDO’s major oil and gas projects.
Said Al-Maktoomi, Frame Agreement Contract Holder at PDO, said: “MPP3 is a key project for PDO. Upon completion it will significantly expand our Enhanced Oil Recovery programme for heavy crude. Petrofac has already demonstrated its effectiveness as a partner to PDO and our teams will continue to work with shared goals and true collaboration as we move forward.”
The award of the MPP3 project builds on Petrofac’s existing track record of EP+Cm support contract delivery for the Rabab Harweel Integrated Project and Yibal Khuff Project on behalf of PDO
Roberto Bertocco, managing director, EPCm for Petrofac said: “Our priorities are to mobilise our teams quickly and to ensure MPP3 is delivered with a focus on technical quality, on time and within budget. We have returned significant value to PDO through our previous project execution and we intend to take the same approach to delivery with MPP3.”
