Algeria In 2018, we commissioned the Alrar gas plant and the Reggane North Development plant. We also started work on a 36-month, US$500 million contract as part of the Tinrhert Field Development Project, which covers engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, start-up, and performance testing.
Iraq We announced several new contract wins and extensions in 2018, with a combined value of more than US$110 million, for construction management, engineering, commissioning and start-up services. We were also awarded a US$370 million contract by Basra Oil Company for expansion of the Central Processing Facility at the Majnoon Field in the South of the country.
Kuwait In 2018, we began the handover of the Clean Fuels Project for Kuwait National Petroleum Corporation, which has been instrumental in demonstrating and extending our downstream credentials. We also entered the pre-commissioning of the Lower Fars heavy oil development programme and the GC29 gathering centre and trunkline project, both of which are for Kuwait Oil Company.
Malaysia We have made significant progress on the US$500 million Refinery and Petrochemicals Integrated Development (RAPID) engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning project. An important dimension of this project is our local delivery model – we chose to work exclusively with locally-based subcontractors, helping them to source, recruit and train a high proportion of Malaysian workers.
Oman We’ve been active in Oman since 1988. In 2018, in partnership with Takatuf, we inaugurated our state-of-the-art technical training centre capable of training up to 350 students. We also won two awards under our 10-year Framework Agreement with Petroleum Development Oman for the provision of EPCm support services for major oil and gas projects: a US$265 million contract for the Marmul Polymer Phase 3 (MPP3) project, and a US$115 million contract for the development of the Qarn Alam Co-Generation project.
Saudi Arabia We are currently working on two major projects in Saudi Arabia, both of which are nearing completion: the Jazan North and South tank farms and Fadhili sulphur recovery plant. We also have a tailored training platform for Saudi employees, which has provided skills training for over 220 Saudi employees.
UK We have multiple operations in the North Sea, and have developed an innovative Service Operator model, which we provide to the Anasuria Operating Company, focused on driving shared value. In 2018, we secured several awards and extensions, including with Siccar Point Energy, Chevron and ENI.
