Kentz Corporation Limited (LSE: KENZ) has been awarded a Framework Agreement to provide services in executing Plant Change Requests by Qatar Shell GTL Limited.
Under the Framework Agreement, Kentz will provide engineering design, construction supervision and procurement services for plant changes and projects at Pearl Gas to Liquids (GTL) plant at Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar, as well as to its offshore platforms, harbor tank farms, offloading jetties and connecting infrastructure.
The duration of the contract is for three years with a two year extension option. The services will be executed in the Kentz Doha office using existing multidiscipline engineering teams, project management and project services resources.
Pearl GTL is the largest GTL project in the world and is being jointly developed by Qatar Petroleum (QP) and Shell. At peak production the facility will produce 140,000 bbl/d of high quality GTL fuels and products and 120,000 boe/d of natural gas liquids and ethane from two trains.
This latest award follows Kentz's successful completion of a number of multi-million contracts over the past five years on the Pearl GTL Project. These contracts have encompassed all three of Kentz's Global Business Units; Specialist Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC), Construction, and Technical Support Services.
Hugh O'Donnell, the chief executive of Kentz, commented: "Having been involved in this world scale project from initial site works through to current commissioning activities, we are delighted to continue working with Shell in the operational and maintenance phase of the project with brown field engineering services over the coming years."
Kentz is currently working with Shell on projects in Qatar as well as elsewhere in the Middle East, Russia and Europe.
