Petrofac and its consortium partner Genie Civil et Batiment (GCB) have secured a provisional award for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the Tinrhert Development Project in Algeria.

The contract is valued at approximately $300m and has been awarded by state-owned oil company Sonatrach for EPC2 of the Tinrhert Field Development Project.

The EPC2 involves a new central processing facility (CPF) featuring inlet separation and decarbonisation units.

Petrofac secured the contract for EPC1 of the Tinhert field in 2018. The EPC1 covered the delivery of a new inlet separation and compression centre and extending the existing Ohanet CPF.

Under the latest contract, Petrofac will also be responsible for tie ins to the existing Alrar separation and boosting facilities, in addition to commissioning, start-up, and performance testing.

The development is expected to boost natural gas production at the field while reducing CO₂ from the gas reserves, within specifications for the global market.

Petrofac engineering and construction division chief operating officer Elie Lahoud said: “The Petrofac and GCB consortium is testament to our focus on local delivery, through investment in local supply chains and work forces.

“We are very pleased to have been notified of this provisional award by Sonatrach, which reflects their confidence in our ability to drive in-country value, whilst safely delivering strategically significant energy infrastructure.”

Tinrhert Development Project is an expansion project associated with the Sonatrach-operated Tinrhert Project.

Last month, Tullow Oil selected Petrofac to provide operations services for the Jubilee Development project in Ghana.

Petrofac was contracted for operations, maintenance, and technical support services for Tullow Oil’s Kwame Nkrumah (KNK) floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.
