Petrofac, leading a consortium with Genie Civil et Batiment (GCB), has a provisional award for an engineering, procurement and construction contract with state-owned oil company Sonatrach for the Tinrhert EPC2 development project in Algeria.

The contract is valued at approximately $300 million, with Petrofac’s share around $200 million.

Located in Alrar, around 1500 kilometres southeast of the capital Algiers, EPC2 will provide a new central processing facility with inlet separation and decarbonisation units.

The consortium’s workscope also includes tie-ins to the existing Alrar separation and boosting facilities, which Petrofac helped deliver in 2018, along with commissioning, start-up and performance testing.
