Petrofac and its partner Serikandi Oilfield and Services Sdn Bhd secured a multi-annual Engineering Design Services contract to support Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP) and Brunei LNG (BLNG) in Brunei, the British oilfield services provider said Thursday.
Petrofac and partner Serikandi will provide engineering across all phases of the asset life cycle for the entire portfolio of onshore and offshore assets for BSP and BLNG, a statement read.
All engineering and design work will be undertaken in Brunei, with the team located at offices in Kuala Belait.
Mani Rajapathy, managing director of Petrofac Engineering & Production Services (EPS) East, said: "We are extremely pleased to be back in Brunei after a number of years, partnering with Serikandi in the delivery of this work for key clients in this area.
"Our portfolio continues to expand in the Asia Pacific region and we look forward to delivering top class engineering design services in a safe and efficient manner to support these critical operations in Brunei."
Shaikh Khalid Bin Shaikh Ahmed, chairman and managing director of the Serikandi Group of Companies, said the Serikandi-Petrofac partnership brings together significant expertise and experience.
"We look forward to working collaboratively to deliver leading energy solutions to the Brunei oil and gas sector with our focus on safety and delivering in-country value at the forefront of our approach," he added.
According to the statement, BSP has been established in Brunei for almost 90 years, with activity primarily focused on exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas from onshore and offshore fields.
Founded in 1969, BLNG was the first LNG plant in the Western Pacific to pioneer large-scale liquefaction of natural gas, it said.
