Petrofac’s engineering, procurement, construction management, and commissioning (EPCC) contract for Rabab Harweel Integrated Project (RHIP), has reached its completion in Southern Oman, with support services worth around $1.25 billion, according to a press release.
The EPCC project was carried out on behalf of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) in the Harweel cluster of fields. The new development encompasses gathering systems, sour gas processing facilities, injection systems, and all the associated flowlines and pipelines. This was the company’s first PDO project where a new commercial contract model was introduced. This new contract strategy meant the project was delivered on a reimbursable basis, where incentives were linked to the achievement of specific milestones and a shared benefit on procurement savings.
Speaking on the project completion, Khalid Abdul Kadar, Project Manager, said, “Achieving this milestone marks the successful completion of a six-year project journey. RHIP has also helped us to build on our existing long term partnership with PDO, which is now continued through Yibal Khuff and our other PDO Framework projects. This success is down to all the people involved and a One Team approach, particularly as we have had to overcome the recent Covid-19 related oil and gas industry challenges.”
