KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 9): UK oil service provider Petrofac has been awarded a new contract worth around RM399 million by Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas).
The engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) scope of work will encompass the delivery of the new Bintulu Additional Gas Sales Facilities 2 (BAGSF-2) plant located onshore in Tanjung Kidurong, Bintulu, Sarawak, Petrofac said in a statement on Monday (Nov 8).
According to Petrofac on Monday, the greenfield development includes a process and utilities unit, effluent treatment unit, metering skid, fire water tank, pumps, flare system and main substation building.
In addition to the 390 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) capacity of the new facility, the project will also involve brownfield modifications and tie in within the existing Petronas plant, also located in Bintulu.
“We have been working closely with Petronas since 2004, using our broad services capability and expertise to support the development of Malaysia’s energy infrastructure. The contract will be delivered by the Petrofac group’s local subsidiary, Petrofac Engineering Services (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, with engineering support from Petrofac RNZ and local supply chain and subcontractors, further underpinning our commitment to local delivery,” said Petrofac chief operating officer Nick Shorten.
Malaysia is Petrofac’s operational centre in the Asia-Pacific region. It combines the company’s engineering, operations, well engineering, subsurface, asset management, decommissioning and training capabilities to support local and Asian markets.
