Petrofac has announced they will lead a partnership with Italian lump-sum contractor Bonatti to execute a 32-month Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for Sonatrach to extend the life of the Alrar gas field in south east Algeria.

The contract value is more than US$650 million.

The scope of work encompasses engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning services for the development of new separation and booster compression facilities at the Alrar field.

The field has been in operation since 1987.

Subramanian Sarma, Managing Director of Petrofac’s Onshore Engineering & Construction business, said,  “We are delighted to be partnering with Bonatti in order to deliver this project for Sonatrach at the Alrar field. This development builds on Petrofac’s long history of successful execution in Algeria where we have been operating successfully for more than 15 years.  Petrofac has a rigorous approach to project execution and we are focused on delivering an effective, safe solution for Sonatrach that meets our high standards.”

Petrofac’s ongoing EPC activities in Algeria include the southern fields development project for In Salah Gas (ISG), an association between Sonatrach, BP and Statoil and the El Merk central processing facility which will be operated by Sonatrach and Anadarko on behalf of the El Merk partners.
