SNC-Lavalin awarded five-year commissioning framework agreement for Omani oil and gas industry

SNC-Lavalin’s subsidiary Kentz Overseas Co. has been awarded a five-year commissioning support services framework agreement by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO).

Under the agreement, extending from 2017 to 2022, the company will provide a variety of systems completions, commissioning, and start-up service activities on a portfolio of oil and gas “megaprojects” within Oman, such as the Rabab Harweel Integrated Project and the Yibal Khuff Project.

SNC-Lavalin’s specialists will be fully integrated within PDO’s commissioning and start-up management team.

Services will include full systems completions, commissioning and start-up management, planning, consultancy, supervision, execution and administration of various oil and gas and related facilities.

Under this contract, SNC-Lavalin will also implement custom technical training programmes that will help train and develop local Omanis to perform completions, commissioning, and start-up activities independently, utilising specialised local vendor support where possible to maximise PDO’s in-country value strategy that aims to secure sustainable technical and commercial benefits for the Sultanate.

“We are pleased to support PDO on these integrated schemes that are key to sustaining our client’s  long-term output,” said Martin Adler, president of oil and gas operations at SNC-Lavalin.

“The agreement is our first with PDO and expands our footprint in the region. It also builds on our strong reputation for improving certainty of project delivery and ensuring successful start-up for our clients.”
