Petrofac Wins Major EPC Project in Algeria

Oilfield services firm Petrofac reported Wednesday that a partnership it is leading has won a $650-million contract with Sonatrach to extend the life of the Alrar gas field in southeast Algeria.

The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract is for the development of new separation and booster compression facilities at the Alrar field, which has been in operation since 1987. The 32-month contract is being carried out with Italian contractor Bonatti.

Subramanian Sarma, managing director of Petrofac's Onshore Engineering & Construction business, commented in a company statement:

"We are delighted to be partnering with Bonatti in order to deliver this project for Sonatrach at the Alrar field.  This development builds on Petrofac's long history of successful execution in Algeria where we have been operating successfully for more than 15 years.

"Petrofac has a rigorous approach to project execution and we are focused on delivering an effective, safe solution for Sonatrach that meets our high standards."
