Mubasher: Omani construction contractor Galfar Engineering & Contracting announced that it has been awarded a contract for a pipeline project by India-based Punj Lloyd.
The OMR 753,000 ($1.9 million) deal includes the construction of a 36.5 centimetres piping for the Fahud-Sohar pipeline’s natural gas liquid (NGL) component, according to the Omani firm’s statement to the Muscat Securities Market (MSM).
The Punj Lloyd-led project is scheduled to be completed in three months from the award letter’s date, 3 February.
The India-headquartered construction contracting firm has other significant projects in the Middle East, including the $57.75 million offshore contract from Saudi Al-Khafji Joint Operations as well as the Kuwait National Petroleum Co’s expansion of Ahmadi Depot.
The Fahud-Sohar pipeline is part of a contract won from Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Co (Orpic) and Oman Gas Co (OGC), Punj Lloyd said in its annual report for fiscal year 2017/2018.
As part of Orpic’s $6.4 billion Liwa Plastic Industries Complex, the Fahud-Sohar pipeline will travel from the new Fahud NGL plant to the steam cracker unit scheme in Sohar.
