Petrofac signs Tinrhert EPC2 contract and MOU to support Algeria’s training goals
Following provisional award in August 2022, Petrofac, leading a consortium with Genie Civil et Batiment (GCB), has today signed an engineering, procurement and construction contract with Sonatrach for the Tinrhert EPC2 Development Project. The contract, signed at an official ceremony in Algiers, 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, the project 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, 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 Algeria.
