Maire Tecnimont has secured an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract from Groupement Bir Seba for the execution of the BirSeba Phase II and Mouiat Outlad Messaoud Field Development Project in Algeria.

The contract, worth $400m, was secured by Maire Tecnimont’s subsidiary Tecnimont. The project will be implemented in the BirSeba and Mouiat Outlad Messaoud oil fields, located in the Touggourt area, about 130km northeast of Hassi Messaoud.

The scope of the contract includes full engineering, procurement and construction activities such as the expansion of existing oil central processing facility, by installing a new oil separation train to double the total capacity up to 40,000 barrels of oil per day.

It also includes installing two additional remote gathering stations and over 400km of pipelines connecting the new oil production wells, along with implementing gas lift and water injection facilities.

Maire Tecnimont Group CEO Pierroberto Folgiero said: “After our previous award with Sonatrach in 2018, this achievement lets us further consolidate our industrial footprint in the strategic Algerian market in the crucial oil & gas sector, having matured a solid experience of projects’ execution in other Middle Eastern and North African countries.

“We are really proud to strengthen a mutually beneficial relationship with such prominent clients, as sound evidence of our successful operations in the Country. This is the fifth major award for our Group in 2020 in spite of the ongoing Covid pandemic and is a further testament of our core business’ resilience.”

The contract awarded by Groupement Bir Seba includes Algerian government-owned Sonatrach, Petrovietnam Exploration Production Corporation, PTT Exploration & Production Algeria, a subsidiary of Thailand national oil company PTTEP.
