Upstream oil and gas

Petrofac has a 39 year track record of designing, building, managing and maintaining oil and gas infrastructure.

Our expertise spans a wide range of onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities. We have a particular speciality in processing upstream gas, especially sour gas: since 2008, more than half of our EPC projects have related to either gas processing or sulphur recovery. We also have a leading position in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS), where we provide a variety of services to offshore production platforms.

We expect oil and gas markets to remain robust. Global demand for gas is set to grow through the energy transition while our core MENA markets are among the most resilient in the world given they enjoy the lowest marginal costs of production. We also expect spending on essential operations and maintenance activity for oil and gas assets, particularly in the UKCS, to remain resilient.

Our services

Our integrated offering in upstream oil and gas spans all phases of the project lifecycle, from initial design through to greenfield and brownfield EPC, operation, maintenance and training. We have a leading well engineering and decommissioning offering to support clients with late life asset management.

We offer a wide variety of commercial models, including lump sum turnkey and EPCm, to tailor execution to client needs. We leverage digital technologies and value engineering to increase efficiency and support clients to reduce the emissions footprint of their assets.

As with all of our markets, we are technology agnostic, selecting the best technology and equipment for every project. We pride ourselves on local delivery and maximising the value of our projects for local economies.
