Petrofac, a leading provider of services to the global energy industry, has been selected by Shell to undertake new Engineering and Procurement Services (EPS) scopes in Oman.
The first is a five-year EPS contract for Shell’s Block-10 Mabrouk Phase-2 Project, located in the Al Wusta Governate of Oman – around 400km from the capital, Muscat. The contract was awarded following a competitive tender and the scope includes well-pads for multiple wells, remote manifold stations and connecting pipeline, including water infrastructure for well development and a Field Operations Base.
Two further contracts, to provide residual engineering and procurement services to complete Phase-1B of the Block-10 development, were secured under Petrofac’s global Enterprise Framework Agreement with Shell.
Elie Lahoud, Chief Operating Officer of Petrofac’s Engineering & Construction business, said:
'Petrofac has been operating in Oman for over 30 years, delivering more than 15 major projects and US$3.7 billion of in-country value during that time. We are delighted to continue our support of the Sultanate’s energy industry and its Vision 2040 priorities.'
The three newly awarded contracts will be delivered in-country utilising Petrofac’s multi-discipline engineering and project execution office in Muscat. Petrofac has been supporting Oman’s energy industries since 1988 to design, build, operate, and maintain facilities, as well as developing local workforce competence and generating in-country value.
Shell Integrated Gas Oman BV, a subsidiary of Shell plc, along with its partners, OQ and Marsa Liquefied Natural Gas, signed a concession agreement to develop and produce natural gas from Block-10 in December 2021. Shell became operator of the field at the signing.
