L&T wins US$846 million EPC contract for gathering centre by KOC

KOC-GCL&T Hydrocarbon, wholly-owned subsidiary of India’s L&T, has won US$846mn engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract from Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) for its gathering centre

Located in north of Kuwait, the oil gathering facilities will receive crude from the Raudhatain fields. The gathering centre is designed for a multi-stage process that will separate 100,000 bpd of crude oil, 240,000 barrels of water per day and 1.77mn standard cu m per day of associated gas to meet the quality requirements of downstream operations.

The scope of L&T’s contract includes project management, detailed engineering, procurement, supply, construction, testing, mechanical completion, pre-commissioning, commissioning assistance including performance testing.

According to the state-owned company, the new facilities will support KOC’s long-term strategy for the development of the North Kuwait fields to increase oil production to one million bpd by 2015-2016.

According to the Indian firm, the contract was won against stiff competition from European and Korean EPC majors.

L&T’s track record in Kuwait includes critical sections of oil refineries at Shuaiba and Mina Abdullah, an aviation fuel depot and supply of 22 reactors that were part of the country’s ‘Clean Fuel Programme’.
