Bahrain’s leading oil and gas solutions company Tatweer Petroleum has awarded a new multi-million-dollar contract to the UK-based energy services firm Petrofac in order to support their gas distribution network project in the kingdom.

According to the company statement, the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Commissioning (EPCC) scope of work includes high-pressure gas pipelines and fiber optic cabling.

The underground pipelines will run through sections onshore and offshore below the seabed in support of gas supply to the kingdom and it will be constructed for full interchangeability.

“Through our engineering and project execution capability, Petrofac has been supporting Tatweer Petroleum to deliver a number of key upstream gas projects in the Kingdom of Bahrain. We again look forward to applying our skills and expertise to safely deliver this critical infrastructure, which underpins the supply of energy to Bahrain.”

Petrofac is a significant multinational energy services provider with a varied client base that includes several of the world’s largest energy corporations. The company designs, builds, manages, and maintains oil, gas, refining, petrochemicals, and renewable energy infrastructure.

Petrofac has been present in Bahrain since 2015, following the winning of an EPCC contract by Tatweer Petroleum to supply a new gas dehydration facility. The project was successfully completed in 2018, and additional scope of work was then secured by Petrofac for the engineering, procurement, and construction of several gas wells, to be connected to the facility.

Tatweer Petroleum granted Petrofac a new multi-million-dollar EPCC contract in June 2020 for an upstream gas project that comprises well hook-ups, associated pipelines, and tie-ins for numerous additional gas wells that the company is planning to drill as part of its gas delivery strategy in Bahrain Field.
