Petrofac in the Americas

United States

Petrofac came to life in Tyler, Texas in 1981, with a focus on the modular fabrication of petroleum facilities. Today in the US, we are a 500-strong team, supporting the onshore and offshore energy community, particularly in the Permian basin and the Gulf of Mexico.

We provide engineering, maintenance, management, operations and decommissioning support services across the life cycle of upstream, midstream, and downstream assets.

Our US team is primarily focused on the delivery of:

  • facility design and wells engineering
  • pipeline installation
  • field facility construction
  • field maintenance
  • project management
  • procurement
  • operational readiness (for greenfield projects)
  • offshore decommissioning and onshore site reclamation

We provide specialist consultancy and technical support to add further value.

Technical excellence drives results

Our engineering capability focuses on wells and decommissioning, with a team experience comprising more than 4,000 well P & A project, 600 facility removals and 500 pipeline abandonments. We draw on Petrofac’s global engineering resources to drive absolute value for our clients.

Strong delivery with a clear focus on safety, integrity and quality

We are proud of our delivery across all projects, including the ultra-fast EPC field development project in West Texas, delivered safely and in record time - only seven months from the first greenfield site meeting to full turnkey EPC and first oil.

From mature asset management to decommissioning

We support clients to extend the economic and operational life of assets and supporting facilities and wells decommissioning activities.

Through our flexible approach to the delivery of discrete or fully integrated services, we ensure:

  • Value creation - we fuse global expertise with efficient fit-for-purpose delivery models for safe, responsible and cost-effective execution.
  • Integrated execution - fully integrated support from field facility design, through operations into well and facility decommissioning means fewer interfaces and a more streamlined and seamless process.
  • Predictable delivery - decades of operational, field maintenance and decommissioning experience means you can be confident your asset is being managed successfully, right to the end.
