Petrofac, the international oil & gas facilities service provider, has been awarded an additional lump sum EPC scope by Khalda Petroleum Co. (KPC) to build its fourth gas processing train at Salam area in Egypt’s Western Desert. This second consecutive train, awarded to Petrofac by KPC during November, increases the Khalda contract from USD 200 million to a total of USD 375 million. KPC is the joint venture company between Apache Corp. and Egyptian General Petroleum Corp. The project, scheduled for completion by the end of 2008, will also be using the services and expertise of local construction and fabrication company Petrojet. The project scope covers the execution of project management, detailed design, procurement, construction, pre-commissioning, commissioning, start-up, performance testing and initial operations. KPC will be adding this fourth gas processing train to its existing and recently awarded similar gas facilities in the Salam area, to process gas produced from its new discoveries.
