Engineering and construction group Kentz Corporation reported Wednesday that it has been awarded a major wellhead industrial control systems contract by Qatar Petroleum.
The $190-million contract is for the engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning for wellhead industrial control systems for approximately 775 wells across the Dukhan oilfield, Qatar. It will run for three years through to 2016 and will be executed by Kentz's Engineering, Procurement and Construction business unit.
The firm estimated that the peak workforce it will deploy to the contract will consist of 800 personnel.

"Kentz was awarded its first project with Qatar Petroleum in 1997 and since then has continued to execute numerous EPC projects, engineering and enhancing QP's assets. We take great pride in this significant award. The past year has seen a huge progression in our engineering offering as we implement our '2013 & Beyond' strategy and we are confident of continued strong bidding in EPC."
