North Caspian Operating Company (NCOC) has awarded a contract, worth $135m, to Petrofac’s Engineering & Production Services (EPS) division in a joint venture with a Kazakhstan company Isker for new water treating facilities in Kazakhstan.

Under the contract, the joint venture will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and pre-commissioning and commissioning (EPCC) of an inlet stream screening to remove debris, feedwater tanks with oil skimmer and pumps.

The work for the 30-month project also includes a clarifier system along with flocculation, coagulation and oil skimmer, treated wastewater storage and pumps, sludge treatment and relative utilities.

Petrofac EPS East managing director Mani Rajapathy said: “Our portfolio continues to expand with this award, which demonstrates continued progress in our stated EPS strategy to grow the business through relatively small EPC contracts.

“This is a further award for Petrofac in Kazakhstan following our project management services contract with KPO and represents another important milestone as we focus on continued growth in-country and delivering EPC projects whilst working with local companies.”

Petrofac said that the award of the project is in line with its EPS’s strategy to secure small greenfield and brownfield EPC projects, using its capabilities, footprint and infrastructure.

NCOC is the operator of the North Caspian Project, which is claimed to be the first major offshore oil and gas development in Kazakhstan. It covers four fields that include Kashagan, Kairan, Aktoty, and Kashagan South West.

In February 2020, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has awarded two engineering and construction contracts, worth $1.65bn, TO Petrofac for the Dalma Gas Development Project located about 190km northwest of Abu Dhabi, UAE.
