Petrofac has signed a three year deal with Gazprom Neft Middle East.
The agreement covers engineering services on a call-off basis for the Garmian field in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.
Steve Webber, senior vice president, Petrofac Engineering & Production Services, East said: “We are delighted Gazprom Neft has selected Petrofac as one of its key suppliers in support of the Garmian field CPF upgrade project.
“We have been working with this key client in Iraq for more than three years and hope to take this opportunity to build on our relationship through the demonstration of Petrofac’s fit-for-purpose and value-driven engineering solutions in the Kurdistan region.”
Gazprom Neft has been Operator of the Garmian field since early 2016. Through the provision of engineering services Petrofac aims to support the planned brownfield works to debottleneck and expand the Central Processing Facility (CPF).
First oil at the Garmian block was achieved in 2011, with commercial production commencing in 2015. As at 1 March 2016 total production at the field had reached 2.7 million tonnes.
Gazprom Neft is currently involved in four projects in the Republic of Iraq, three of which are located in the Kurdistan Region.
Gazprom Neft Middle East has interests in the Garmian, Halabja and Shakal blocks, holding an 80-percent interest in the Halabja and Shakal fields.
