Petrofac wins $800m BP Khazzan Phase 2 contract

British oilfield services firm Petrofac has announced that it been awarded a lump-sum contract worth approximately $800 million by energy major BP for the Phase 2 central processing facility (CPF) at the Khazzan Phase 2 (Ghazeer) gas development in the Sultanate of Oman.  This follows the $1.4 billion Phase 1 CPF Khazzan project, awarded to Petrofac in February 2014, which celebrated first gas on September 22 this year. 

The project comprises the addition of a third gas train with a capacity for nominally handling 500 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (mmscfd), which will help drive increased total production capacity from the CPF to 1,500 mmscfd.  The Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) scope of work also includes liquid and compression trains and associated infrastructure, as well as brownfield work associated with connecting the Phase 1 and 2 facilities.
