15 March, 2019
EIC member Petrofac has been awarded a contract worth approximately US$1bn (£755m) with Groupment Isarene, the joint operating group set up by Sonatrach, Petroceltic and Enel, for the Ain Tsila development project in Algeria.
Located around 1,100km south-east of Algiers, the Ain Tsila field will produce gas, liquefied petroleum gas and condensate for the local Algerian market and for export.
Under the terms of the 42-month contract, the lump-sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) project scope of work includes commissioning, start-up and performance testing.
Petrofac’s other recent EPC activity in Algeria include work on Sonatrach’s Tinrhert field development project, along with the Alrar and Reggane projects that commenced production last year.
