Client: OQ LPG (SFZ) LLC

Project Value: US$600 million

Location: Oman

In 2017, Petrofac secured a contract with Salalah LPG SFZCO LLC (SLPG), a wholly owned subsidiary of Oman Oil Facilities Development Company LLC (OOFDC), to undertake the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of its Salalah LPG extraction project in the southern part of Oman.

Under the terms of the 36-month lump sum EPC contract, the scope consists of construction of the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) unit and associated facilities, including tie-ins to existing pipeline infrastructure, together with LPG storage and jetty facilities at the Port of Salalah.

Elie Lahoud, Group Managing Director, Engineering & Construction, commented:

Being our eleventh contract in the Sultanate, this project reinforces our commitment to Oman where we have been present since 1988 and will further support our commitment to increase in-country value.

We will continue to maintain strong focus on this aspect of our delivery, particularly by engaging the local supply chain and recruiting local resources. We are very much looking forward to growing and strengthening our team working alongside OOFDC to deliver this project.

Impressive milestones have been accomplished throughout the project cycle, including the safe installation of huge dome roofs on two LPG tanks using nothing but air, something that was not done at Petrofac before.
