Petrofac to build Egyptian gas train

04 August 2008
Egypt's Khalda Petroleum Company has awarded the UK’s Petrofac a design, engineering and procurement contract to build a fifth gas processing train at its natural gas plant at Salam in the Western desert.

Petrofac will provide front-end engineering, design and procurement services, which it expects to be extended into a full lump-sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) deal by the end of November.

The new train, expected online by the end of 2010, will expand the plant's capacity by 100 million cubic feet a day (cf/d) of gas to 810 million cf/d and 31,000 barrels-a-day (b/d) of condensate.

Khalda is a 50:50 joint venture of Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and Apache Egypt (MEED 18:8:06).

Petrofac is currently involved in the development of three separate trains for the project, which will add 300 cf/d of gas processing capacity for Khalda.
