Petrofac’s Engineering & Production Services division has secured a one-year contract extension worth around US$80 million with a key client in Iraq.
The facility which Petrofac will continue to manage, is one of the largest in the Gulf and handles around 55 percent of Iraq’s crude oil exports.
Steve Webber, SVP Operations EPS East, commented: “This contract extension strengthens our long-term client partnership. Since the start of our involvement in 2012, we have supported this facility to export over 4 billion barrels of oil. Our teams in Iraq have an impeccable safety record and the use of innovative solutions have been at the heart of our delivery model. We look forward to supporting our client to maintain the best-in-class operation of this important national asset.”
Petrofac has been involved in a range of greenfield and brownfield projects in the country worth more than US$1 billion, with on-going skills and competency development of the local workforce a key priority.
