Petrofac secures contract with Tatweer

Petrofac’s Offshore Projects and Operations business has been awarded a contract in Bahrain to supply a new gas dehydration facility – Petrofac’s first project in the Kingdom.

The signing of the new contract on 1 September will see the installation of a new 500 MMSCFD gas dehydration facility, which is the first of a series of planned gas capacity projects scheduled for the next three to five years. The project is a significant part of Tatweer Petroleum’s commitment to secure the delivery of natural gas needed to meet the growing demands of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
