UK energy service firm Petrofac has clinched a £750 million deal to provide engineering, procurement and construction services for a project in Algeria.
The Ain Tsila project — operated by Groupement Isarene, a joint venture between Sonatrach, Petroceltic and Enel — will produce gas, LPG and condensate for the local Algerian market and for export.
Petrofac will be involved in commissioning, start-up and performance testing.
E. S. Sathyanarayanan, group managing director, engineering and construction at Petrofac, said: “I am delighted we have the opportunity to be working with the Groupement Isarene partners to deliver this strategically important project.
“This award builds on Petrofac’s significant track record in Algeria where we have been operating successfully for more than 20 years, with a strong record for project execution and the development of local capability.
“We are focused on delivering an effective, safe solution that meets our high standards and continues our commitment to the local energy sector.”
