Petrofac wins services contract for Gazprom’s Kurdish oil field

EBR Staff Writer Published 11 October 2017

Petrofac has bagged a three-year master services agreement (MSA) from Gazprom Neft Middle East for the Garmian oil field in Iraq’s Kurdistan region.

The London-headquartered oilfield services provider will provide engineering services on a call-off basis to the field for which the Russian gas giant Gazprom’s subsidiary assumed operatorship in March 2016.

Petrofac stated that the MSA was won the deal after a competitive tendering process. It also said that the contract expands its footprint in Iraq further. The company has been involved in engineering, operations, maintenance and training services since seven years in Iraq.

Petrofac will support the planned brownfield works to debottleneck and expand the Central Processing Facility (CPF) through the provision of engineering services.

Petrofac engineering & production services east senior vice president Steve Webber 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.”

The previous operator of the Garmian block was WesternZagros Resources which transferred its role to the Gazprom subsidiary as part of a production sharing contract inked in 2012.

First oil at the Garmian field was drawn in 2011 and four years later, commercial production began. The total production at the Kurdish oil field as of 1 March 2016 had reached 2.7 million tonnes.
