Technical service provider Petrofac and its partner Serikandi Oilfield and Services have jointly secured a multi-annual engineering design services contract to support Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP) and Brunei LNG (BLNG) in Brunei.
BSP has been working with primary focus on exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas from onshore and offshore fields, since it was established in Brunei 90 years ago.
BLNG was the first LNG plant in the Western Pacific to pioneer large scale liquefaction of natural gas.
Petrofac EPS East managing director Mani Rajapathy said: “We are extremely pleased to be back in Brunei after a number of years, partnering with Serikandi in the delivery of this work for key clients in this area.
“Our portfolio continues to expand in the Asia Pacific region and we look forward to delivering top class engineering design services in a safe and efficient manner to support these critical operations in Brunei.”
Under the contract, Petrofac along with its partner Serikandi will offer engineering across all phases of the asset lifecycle for the entire portfolio of onshore and offshore assets for BSP and BLNG.
Petrofac said that all the engineering and design works will be undertaken in Brunei, with the team located at offices in Kuala Belait.
Serikandi Group of Companies chairman and managing director Shaikh Khalid Bin Shaikh Ahmed said: “The Serikandi Petrofac partnership brings together significant expertise and experience. We look forward to working collaboratively to deliver leading energy solutions to the Brunei oil and gas sector with our focus on safety and delivering in-country value at the forefront of our approach.”
In August 2018, Petrofac had secured a contract from Iraqi national oil company Basra Oil (BOC) for expansion of the Central Processing Facility (CPF) in the Majnoon Field located in Southern Iraq for approximately $370m.
Under the contract, the company was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for two oil processing trains, with a processing capacity of 200kbopd.
