The three-year contract to provide maintenance engineering, maintenance execution and support services was awarded to Petrofac Offshore Projects & Operations (OPO) and is worth US$95mn, the company said.

The win builds on a previous contract to carry out the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work on the first phase of the field’s processing facilities.

OPO will now provide maintenance services including the provision of a computerised maintenance information management system and related processes and procedures as well as associated support services in relation to the processing facilities, equipment and associated infrastructure.

Bill Dunnett, managing director of Petrofac OPO said, “We’ve been working in Iraq since 2010 and have steadily grown our footprint in the country. Today we’re working on four major developments in Iraq and we opened our country headquarters in Rumaila earlier this year. I’m delighted to be continuing our working relationship with Gazprom.”
