OOCEP extend technical services contract with Petrofac
Petrofac Oman E&C LLC (“Petrofac”) has been awarded a Technical Support Services contract by Oman Oil Company Exploration & Production LLC (“OOCEP”), under which Petrofac will provide, amongst other things, technical services, including support services, for the OOCEP’s Abu Bu Tabul (ABB) gas facility and Musandam Gas Plant (MGP) in Oman.
Petrofac has drawn upon its extensive operating track record, leading asset integrity process and toolkit to work with OOCEP to monitor and manage risks related to asset integrity and safety. OOCEP, working closely with Petrofac, has developed its own operating capability and systems to assume operational management of the facilities.
The extended collaboration follows a three-year contract during which Petrofac successfully delivered operations and maintenance (O&M) services at ABB and MGP for OOCEP. Within the new technical support services contract, Petrofac will deploy engineering and operations personnel across OOCEP’s asset portfolio.
Steve Webber, Senior Vice President, Engineering and Operations for EPS East said, “This is a great example of Petrofac working with national oil companies to deliver high standards for safety and for operating new facilities, as well as sharing industry best practice and working collaboratively. For the last three years, we’ve focused on improving the awareness of process safety and risk assessment amongst the facility’s operating personnel. We’re delighted to continue working with OOCEP as this will allow us to share invaluable knowledge and experience, which will be retained going forward with the award of the new technical services contract to Petrofac.
“With this new contract framework we have created a mechanism through which we can work together with OOCEP on the operational needs of its asset portfolio over the long-term.”
As discussed in the HPI Market Data 2019 report, published in November by Gas Processing & LNG’s sister publication, Hydrocarbon Processing, rising propane and ethane supplies in the US have been enabled by greater production of shale gas.

Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
