Petrofac has been involved in executing more than 10 projects in Qatar which has resulted in a longstanding association with National Oil Company Qatar Petroleum and its venture companies.

The most recent project to be undertaken in the country is the gas sweetening facilities project for Qatar Petroleum, which is worth more than US$600 million. The team successfully managed a number of challenges, not least having two live operating plants to work on simultaneously, but which are both located a substantial distance apart.

Some highlights from the project include:

  • Successful training programme in project management and engineering domains for 17 engineers from Qatar Petroleum
  • 344,375 hours of personnel specific training
  • 4,691 personnel recorded at peak construction
  • 5 million man-hours worked without a lost time incident
