Petrofac is awarded EPC project by Kuwait Oil Company’s (KOC) manifold group trunkline (MGT) system in the north Kuwait.
The lump-sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) project, valued at approximately USD 780M, is integral to KOC’s plans to increase and maintain crude production over the next five years. Three new gathering centres (GCs) are already under construction with Petrofac executing the EPC contract for GC 29.
Due for completion towards the end of 2017, the MGT system will provide the feedstock to each of the GCs via three independent networks of intermediate manifolds and pipelines. Each of the three GCs will produce around 100,000 barrels of oil per day together with associated water and gas.
Marwan Chedid, chief executive of Petrofac’s Engineering, Construction, Operations and Maintenance division, said: “We have a long track record in Kuwait which extends over the last 15 years and the MGT award represents our twelfth project in the country. We look forward to working with KOC to deliver this project safely and on schedule.”
