Jacobs Engineering Group said it has been awarded a three-year contract by energy giant BP to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for Phase Two of the Khazzan Project in Oman.
As per the deal, Jacobs will continue to deliver EPCM services in support of the project, including the ongoing expansion of the gas gathering system, wellsite facilities and export pipelines, said the company in a statement.
In September last year, a significant milestone was reached when Phase One of the BP Khazzan Project achieved first gas ahead of schedule.
Jacobs had delivered the EPCM services for the process and infrastructure work during the first phase of this greenfield project as well, through its global integrated delivery model, utilizing knowledge from a diverse group of employees, as well as local construction suppliers, it stated.
Jacobs (Petroleum and Chemicals) president Vinayak Pai said: “We are committed to continuing our relationship with BP through the next development phase of this world-scale gas project.”
“Upon completion of the project, this field has the potential to produce gas for Oman for decades to come and simultaneously sets the stage for knowledge transfer and Omanisation,” stated Pai.
Khazzan is considered to be one of the biggest tight gas projects in the Middle East and Phase One is expected to develop approximately seven trillion standard cubic feet of gas, deliver plateau production of one billion standard cubic feet of gas per day and 25,000 barrels of gas condensate per day, he added
