Petrofac consortium awarded EPC project in Algeria
Petrofac, leading a consortium with Genie Civil et Batiment (GCB), has received notification of a provisional award for an engineering, procurement and construction contract with Sonatrach for the Tinrhert EPC2 Development Project in Algeria. The contract is valued at approximately US$300 million, with Petrofac’s share around US$200 million.
Located in Alrar, around 1,500 kilometres southeast of Algiers, EPC2 will provide a new Central Processing Facility (CPF) with inlet separation and decarbonisation units. The scope of work also includes tie ins to the existing Alrar Separation and Boosting Facilities, which Petrofac originally helped deliver in 2018, along with commissioning, start-up and performance testing. When completed, the development will boost natural gas production and remove CO2 from the field’s gas reserves, within specifications for the global market, enabling further economic growth in-country.
