Petrofac, the international oil & gas service provider, has been awarded a lump-sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) for a new power distribution network in North Kuwait.
The project was awarded following a competitive tender and will be completed in 24 months.
The contract, worth $200m, requires Petrofac to construct three new sub-station buildings and to lay down around 900 kilometres of buried cable to connect the site's sub-stations to the distribution network. When complete, the new facilities will provide a more robust power supply to support the development of the onshore oil fields in North Kuwait.
