Article by Staff Writer

THE Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) has awarded a US$1.3bn lump-sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a sour gathering centre to Petrofac.

The centre, GC 32, will be the first sour gathering centre for the Burgan field. It will process around 120,000 bbl/d oil from the the Arifjan, Marat, Minagish Oolite and Burgan Wara high hydrogen sulphide fields, along with associated water, gas and condensate. The work for GC 32 includes greenfield development to connect to existing brownfield infrastructure.

“Kuwait is one of our core markets in the Middle East and we have been executing projects in the country since the early 1980s. We are proud to continue our association with KOC and look forward to working closely with them to deliver the project,” said Petrofac Group chief operating officer Marwan Chedid.

Petrofac says that it will begin work in the near future, with completion of the centre due in mid 2020.
