Petrofac has been awarded a contract worth more than US$700 million by Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd. (Sakhalin Energy) for its onshore processing facility (OPF) on Sakhalin Island. The project comprises a lump-sum engineering, procurement and offshore fabrication component, as well as a reimbursable element for construction and site services.
The scope of work includes inlet separation and feed gas compression facilities, a new flare system, utilities, substations and associated buildings, a temporary beach landing facility, refurbishment of the existing camp, temporary site facilities for Sakhalin Energy and Petrofac, as well as brownfield tie-ins to the existing OPF. With early engineering work already underway, the project will support Sakhalin Energy in maintaining its sustainable LNG capacity.
Sunder Kalyanam, Group Managing Director for Petrofac’s Engineering & Construction Growth business said: “We have been executing projects in Russia since the 1990s and this marks our tenth in the country. Sakhalin Island is a very familiar location for Petrofac as our Sakhalin Technical Training Centre (STTC), established in 2008, has been helping meet increased local demand for competent personnel specialising in the oil and gas industry. From STTC we are able to supply a wide range of technical support services including front-end engineering and design, pre-commissioning and commissioning, operations and maintenance as well as technical manpower support. We look forward to working with Sakhalin Energy to deliver this strategically important project.”
