Petrofac Awarded Water Injection Project with Kuwait Oil Company
Petrofac, the international oil & gas facilities service provider, announces that it has been awarded a KD123 million (approximately US$430 million) contract by Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) for the engineering, procurement and construction of effluent water and central sea water injection facilities.
The project involves the installation of a new central injection pumping facility and modifications to three of the existing gathering centres and seawater treatment plant. When completed, both effluent water and sea water will be fed into a central injection pumping facility and injected into the wells with the objective of increasing the oil recovery capacity in the Raudhatain and Sabriyah fields.
The competitively tendered project is scheduled to commence shortly and estimated for completion within 36 months.
Commenting on the award, Maroun Semaan, Petrofac’s group chief operating officer said: “We are delighted to have secured two contracts with KOC in two weeks. KOC is an important customer for Petrofac, and the water injection project announced today, together with the pipeline contract awarded at the end of July, enables us to extend our operations in Kuwait and further consolidates our competitive position in the Middle East.”
