Petrofac was first established in Texas in 1981 and now supports the US onshore and offshore energy community, particularly in the Permian basin and the Gulf of Mexico.

We work across the asset life cycle, providing engineering, maintenance, management and operations support services for assets in upstream, midstream and downstream.

Petrofac’s US team is primarily focused on the delivery of engineering, project management, procurement and operation services, including operational readiness (for greenfield projects) and maintenance support (for brownfield projects and production operations). We provide specialist technical support to add further value.

Our training and competence solutions complement our wider activities, helping our clients to achieve operational competency across their organisation, assets and the regions they operate.

Technical excellence drives results

Our engineering capability spans concept and feasibility phases, through project execution and into construction, commissioning and start-up. We draw on Petrofac’s global engineering resources to drive absolute value for our clients. We are proud of our team’s reputation for challenging design processes and exploring all avenues for cost-saving strategies to reduce total installed costs. This means thinking differently, such as developing repeatable solutions, specifying alternative materials or integrating engineering phases to reduce schedules.

And we design with ease of construction in mind, reducing problems down the line. Our construction management guidelines govern how we deliver, ensuring our engineering output is robust and conforms to our high standards.

We have worked hard to become a trusted partner for our clients. We draw on our global track record to create scalable, repeatable and fit-for-purpose solutions and can offer support at any point during the project life cycle.

Global relationships and buying power

As a Tier 1 global contractor, we have existing and proven alliances with fabrication and construction contractors across the world. We leverage these relationships, our experience of major projects to optimise value throughout the projects we deliver.

Our annual procurement spend is around US$2 billion

Commercial flexibility

We are flexible too, supporting small reimbursable man-hour projects, discrete detailed design and procurement contracts through to minor and major modification projects. And we deliver through a range of service contracts, including Master Services Agreements (MSA), EPCM, Project Management Contractor (PMC) and owner’s engineer contracts.

Expanding our capability in the Permian

In 2019, we acquired W&W Energy Services to support our growth in the US onshore services market. W&W delivers Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul and Pipeline tie-in services in the Permian Basin. The combination of W&W’s footprint and strong local brand and Petrofac’s engineering, modifications and project delivery capability and experience will support us in delivering more for clients in the region.
