PDO awards Petrofac with RHIP E&P contract in Oman

Oman facility-michealjesusday flickrPetrofac has announced that Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) has awarded it a four-and-a-half year engineering and procurement (E&P) contract for the Rabab Harweel Integrated Project (RHIP)

The project is located in the Harweel oilfields located in Oman’s southern region, the UK oilfield services firm said.

Petrofac’s contract, estimated at more than US$1bn, will include construction and commissioning management supports services, with the firm providing full support to PDO during the construction and start-up phases of the integrated oil and sour gas facility, the company added.

Craig Muir, engineering and consulting services managing director of Petrofac, said, “We have a strong track record in Oman with PDO as well as direct engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) experience on the previous Harweel development. This award also underpins Petrofac’s strategy to enhance service capability in the Middle East.”

According to Petrofac, the RHIP facility will include sour gas processing facilities and associated gathering and injection systems, as well as export pipelines. It will handle the production of oil and gas from the Harweel oil reservoirs via miscible gas injection and the production of gas with condensate from the Rabab reservoir through partial recycling of sour gas.

The facility is reportedly designed to deliver peak export of 4.9mn cubic metres per day of sweet gas and 9,700 cubic metres per day of condensate, in addition to around 16mn cubic metres per day of sour gas.
