Second Gazprom Award for Petrofac in Iraq
Petrofac has been awarded a second contract by Gazprom Neft Badra B.V. on the Badra Oil Field, situated 160km southeast of Baghdad City in the Republic of Iraq. Worth US$95 million over three years, the contract was awarded to Petrofac’s Offshore Projects & Operations (OPO) business to provide maintenance engineering, maintenance execution and support services.
The win builds on a previous contract to carry out the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work on the first phase of the field’s processing facilities. OPO will now provide maintenance services including the provision of a computerised maintenance information management system and related processes and procedures, maintenance execution and associated support services in relation to the processing facilities, equipment and associated infrastructure.
Bill Dunnett, Managing Director, Petrofac OPO said: “Iraq is a key geography for us and this award reflects our ability to provide quality maintenance and engineering services on technically and logistically challenging projects in the region. We’ve been working in Iraq since 2010 and have steadily grown our footprint in the country. Today we’re working on four major developments in Iraq and we opened our country headquarters in Rumaila, earlier this year. Following our work on the first phase of the project this award is also an excellent example of Petrofac’s ability to provide a lifecycle service to our customers and I’m delighted to be continuing our working relationship with Gazprom.”
