Indian construction firm Punj Lloyd has secured $304m worth of oil and gas EPC contracts in Oman from Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic) and Oman Gas Company (OGC).
The Orpic contract calls for construction of a 14in-diameter 300km natural gas liquid (NGL) pipeline that forms part of the company’s $6.4bn Liwa Plastic Industries Complex (LPIC) and stretches from the New Fahud NGL plant to the steam cracker unit at Sohar.
Punj Lloyd’s scope of work in the OGC contract includes laying a 32in-diameter 301km gas pipeline parallel to the existing 32in-diameter Fahud-Sohar pipeline to supply gas for North Power station. It also covers construction of block valve and pigging stations.
Both projects are due for completion within 38 and 35 months, respectively.
Punj Lloyd Pipeline & Tankage president and CEO Atul Jain said: “We feel proud as we were selected due to the strength of our technical and financial bids. Also Punj Lloyd was the only Indian contractor in Oman to be awarded a sizable contract of the LPIC mega complex. Our past experience of delivering strategic projects in Oman and our prowess in pipelines globally, both stood testament to our capabilities.”
