Kentz (SNC-Lavalin Group) wins multi million dollar Qatar Pearl GTL four year EPCM contract

Posted on 12th December 2014

Kentz, a group member of the leading engineering and construction group SNC-Lavalin, has won a four-year multi-million-dollar call-off contract, with a possible two-year extension, from Qatar Shell for its Pearl Gas-To-Liquids (GTL) onshore and offshore facilities in Qatar.

Pearl-GTLAs a construction contractor for onshore and offshore Pearl GTL facilities, Kentz will manage the EPCM (engineering, procurement and construction management) work for all services related to plant changes, as well as minor, base and medium projects, said a statement from SNC-Lavlin.

This will include project management, engineering and specialist studies, procurement and logistics, construction and commissioning management, and the execution of construction works, it stated.

Located in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Pearl GTL is the world’s largest source of GTL products, capable of producing 140,000 barrels of GTL products each day. The plant also produces 120,000 barrels per day (bpd) of natural gas liquids and ethane. The new phase of the project will allow Qatar Shell to continue to enhance local development.

The project award follows the acquisition of Kentz by SNC-Lavalin a few months back. The acquisition of one of the world’s top oil and gas service providers has transformed SNC-Lavalin's capabilities in the sector, creating a group of approximately 20,000 high-calibre employees with end-to-end expertise for large and complex projects.

SNC-Lavalin and Kentz are now combining their industry leading capabilities for the direct benefit of clients. Commenting on the win, Christian Brown, the president (oil and gas) of SNC-Lavalin Group, said: “We are thrilled to have an opportunity to strengthen our excellent relationship with Qatar Shell, which began with our first contract for Pearl several years ago. This is a highly strategic contract for us since we will be providing complete EPCM services to our client as needed for at least four years,” he added.
