Client: Petroleum Development Oman

Project value: US$900 million

Location: 350 km south west of Muscat

In 2015, Petrofac was awarded its second contract with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for the Yibal Khuff project, a field located approximately 350 km south west of Muscat.

Similar to the Rabab Harweel Integrated Project, Petrofac is providing engineering, procurement, construction management and commissioning support services on a reimbusable basis with incentives, which means our profit is linked to the achievement of specific milestones and a potential gain share on procurement.

Capacity

When complete, the Yibal Khuff field will deliver:           

  • 5 MM SCMD of associated gas
  • Around 10,000 BPD of oil

Development of the field will add to PDO’s future oil production, whilst the associated gas will be used for power generation and enhanced oil recovery developments.

Resourcing

The project is supported by around 540 Petrofac employees.

​For the first time in Petrofac’s history, the offsite and pipeline scope of the project is being executed from our Muscat engineering office.

 

Project update: June 2017

The project is 40% complete and is progressing well and on schedule with 38 out of 65 milestones achieved.

Major ordering has been completed, engineering is more than 70% complete and construction activities are about to start. A critical activity underway is the delivery of the materials to site and the creation of warehousing and storage facilities.

The project is introducing the following materials to site:

  • 660,000 dia inch of piping
  • 10,000 metric tonnes of structural steel
  • 70,000 cubic metres of concrete
  • 3,100 km of electrical and instrumentation cable
  • 1,800 metric tonnes of storage tanks

Project update: July 2017

More than 80 employees received a special 'Shukran' award from PDO for outstanding performance on the project

PDO's Abdullah Jabri, EP Contract Holder and Facilities Delivery Manager, praised the way in which the PDO and Petrofac teams were working together with full co-operation and dedication.

 

The philosophy of the engineering team on the project has been to work as an integrated team with PDO and solve the engineering challenges together; this has been a critical success factor.
