The contract will be executed by the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) unit of Kentz for wellhead industrial control systems for 775 wells and run for the duration of three years through to 2016, the company added. 

According to Kentz, a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) network infrastructure will be installed to monitor wellheads from designated stations that will provide centralised real time and historical wellhead data directly into QP’s network. 

The scope of work also includes the prevention of external corrosion damage to the well casings in the Dukhan oilfield by installing a current cathodic protection system.

Tush Doshi, CEO of Kentz's EPC Business Unit, said, “Kentz was awarded its first project with QP in 1997 and since then has continued to execute numerous EPC projects, engineering and enhancing QP’s assets.

“The past year has seen a huge progression in our engineering offering as we implement our 2013 & Beyond strategy and we are confident of continued strong bidding in EPC.”
