Qatar Shell Ltd. has let a contract to WorleyParsons Ltd. to provide long-term engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) services for its Pearl gas-to-liquids (GTL) onshore and offshore installations in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar.

To be executed by Worley Parsons Qatar with support from the firm’s global delivery center in India, the 5-year contract will involve delivery of EPCM services primarily for a portfolio of brownfield projects at Pearl GTL operations, WorleyParsons said.
