LONDON -- Saudi Aramco has awarded Petrofac an engineering procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the Karan utilities and co-generation package.

The project forms part of the Karan gas development program that will expand the Khursaniyah gas plant northwest of Jubail in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, to accommodate around 1.8 bcf/d of high pressure sour gas from the offshore Karan field.

In addition, Petrofac will also upgrade the plant's process controls, electrical systems, and support facilities.
