Petrofac wins US$1bn EPC project in Algeria

onshore operations 750wPetrofac, a UK energy service company, has been awarded a contract worth US$1bn for engineering, procurement and construction services related to the Ain Tsila development project in Algeria

The Ain Tsila project, operated by Groupement Isarene, a joint venture between Sonatrach, Petroceltic and Enel, will produce gas, LPG and condensate for the Algerian local market and for export.

The project is located around 1,100 km south-east of Algiers.

Under the terms of the 42-month contract, the work scope of the lump-sum EPC project includes commissioning, start-up and performance testing.

E S Sathyanarayanan, group managing director, engineering and construction, commented, “I am delighted we have the opportunity to be working with the Groupement Isarene partners to deliver this strategically important project.

“This award builds on Petrofac’s significant track record in Algeria where we have been operating successfully for more than 20 years, with a strong record for project execution and the development of local capability. We are focused on delivering an effective, safe solution that meets our high standards and continues our commitment to the local energy sector,” he added.

Petrofac’s EPC activities in Algeria include Sonatrach’s Tinrhert field development project, along with the Alrar and Reggane projects that started production last year.
