SMEC Oil & Gas was engaged by Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) for three years to provide design, engineering and construction supervision services on a call-out basis for natural gas and Liquefied Petroleum Gas processing facilities in Pakistan.
Due to its satisfactory performance on multiple assignments, the subsidiary of SMEC, a member of the Surbana Jurong Group, has received an extension on the contract. In the three years, it had undertaken modification and development works at PPL’s current and future operating fields, including studies to improve existing systems; Basic Design/FEED, detailed design, engineering design reviews and associated activities and site supervision services.
Upon expiry of the framework agreement, PPL has extended the Call-out Agreement further for a year with an overall increase of 15% to the existing value of the recently active Gambat South GPF-III Project contract. The services for project under execution comprise design review and construction supervision. The project is scheduled for completion in November 2018.
The Federal Board of Revenue in the Government of Pakistan has recently awarded SMEC, member of the Surbana Jurong Group, the project to provide construction supervision and consultancy services on the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation Regional Improving Border Services (CAREC-RIBS) initiative. SMEC won the tender, together with its subsidiary Engineering General Consultants (EGC), in association with two other local firms, namely Al-Kasib Group of Engineering Services and Rehman Habib Consultants.
The Asia Development Bank (ADB) funded project includes the improvement of civil infrastructure, the procurement and installation of border crossing ITC equipment, as well as security systems at the borders of Pakistan. Slated to last for a duration of about five years, this project is a strategic win for SMEC, making its foray into a Border Management Project in Pakistan.
