L&T Hydrocarbon bags Rs. 5,076-cr contract from Kuwait Oil Co.
L&T Hydrocarbon, a wholly-owned subsidiary of L&T, has secured a contract valued at $846 million (Rs. 5,076 cr) from Kuwait Oil Company (KOC).
L&T Hydrocarbon will execute a complete engineer-procure-construct contract for a gathering centre for KOC.
KOC is a subsidiary of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) and is fully owned by the State of Kuwait.
Located in north Kuwait, the oil gathering facilities will receive crude from the Raudhatain fields. The centre is designed for a multi-stage process that will separate 100,000 BOPD (barrels of oil per day) of crude oil, 240,000 BWPD (barrels of water per day) of water and 62.5 MMSCFD (million standard cubic feet of gas per day) of associated gas to meet the quality requirements of downstream operations, the company said.
L&T's contract includes project management, detailed engineering, procurement, supply, construction and pre-commissioning.
The new facilities will support KOC’s long-term strategy for the development of the North Kuwait fields to increase oil production to one MMBOPD by 2015-2016.
L&T said it was a breakthrough for its hydrocarbon subsidiary as the order was won against competition from European and Korean majors.
L&T's track record in Kuwait includes critical sections of oil refineries at Shuaiba and Mina Abdullah, an aviation fuel depot and supply of 22 reactors that were part of the country's 'clean fuel programme'.
