KOC awards US$700 million gathering centre contract to Petrofac

gathering-centre-kocPetrofac has secured a US$700mn engineering, procurement and construction contract from Kuwait Oil Company’s (KOC) gathering centre 29 (GC29), located 70km north of Kuwait City

The project, which also includes pre-commissioning and commissioning of GC29 gathering centre, will be completed over three years, KOC said.

GC29 is one of three gathering centres being constructed to support KOC’s plans to increase and maintain oil production over the next five years. Each of the three gathering centres will be capable of producing around 100,000 bpd together with associated water and gas.

Subramanian Sarma, MD of Petrofac’s onshore engineering and construction business, said, “We have a long track record with KOC which extends over the last 14 years and the award of GC29 represents our 10th project in the country to date.

“With ongoing projects for both KOC and Kuwait National Petroleum Company and good visibility of the future pipeline, Kuwait is, and will continue to be, of strategic importance to Petrofac’s ambitions in the Middle East market.”
