KUALA LUMPUR (May 22): Petrofac Facilities Management Asia Pacific Sdn Bhd (Petrofac) has been awarded a US$220 million (RM686.4 million) contract by Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd for the refurbishment of the Bekok-C platform, located in Block PM9 in the south-eastern part of the Malay basin.
In a statement on its website, Petofac said the project would be executed on an engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) alliance basis.
It said Bekok-C was a manned platform serving as a gas processing and compression hub exporting gas from the Guntong, Tiong and Bekok fields of Block PM9 in addition to production of crude oil and gas from its own wells.
"Under the terms of the refurbishment project Petrofac will provide EPCIC services to the platform with the overall project expected to be completed in around 15 months," it said.
Petrofac's engineering, construction, operations and maintenance (ECOM) division chief executive Marwan Chedid said the refurbishing the Bekok-C platform added to the portfolio of important projects that the company was delivering for Petronas Carigali in Malaysia.
"This project also represents a considerable step forward for Petrofac as we develop our leading EPC capability offshore through our Offshore Project & Operations business.
"We have been working closely with Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd since 2004 and will continue to use the full extent of our broad services capability to support their development of Malaysia's oil and gas industry," said Chedid.
