Jacobs to support BP in Khazzan gas project

Jacobs Engineering Group was awarded a contract by BP for process and infrastructure work on the greenfield Khazzan project in the Sultanate of Oman.

Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is to provide engineering, procurement and construction management services in relation to approximately USD 2B of gas gathering and water pipelines, wellhead production facilities and export pipelines for the development of the southern sector of Block 61. Jacobs’ scope of work also includes the detailed design and program management for the associated project infrastructure. The work utilises resources from multiple Jacobs offices located in the Middle East, U.K., India and the U.S., as well as the local workforce and suppliers. The project is expected to mobilise immediately.
Jacobs Group Vice President Conor Doyle stated, “We see tremendous opportunities to leverage our technical experience in tight gas projects with our infrastructure capability in the region, and are pleased to support this pioneering development.”

In December 2013, the Government of the Sultanate of Oman and BP announced a gas sales agreement and an amended production sharing agreement for the development of the Khazzan field, with BP as operator. The Khazzan project represents the first phase in the development of one of the Middle East region’s largest unconventional tight gas accumulations.
