Petrofac wins $200m EPC contract from Kuwait Oil

Oil and gas service provider Petrofac has won a $200m (£123m) engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Kuwait Oil Company for a power distribution network in north Kuwait.

The project is expected to be completed in 24 months and will see Petrofac construct three new substation buildings, as well as laying approximately 900km of buried cable to connect the site’s substations to the distribution network.

When completed, the facilities will provide a more robust power supply to support the development of the onshore oil fields in north Kuwait.
