Qatar Petroleum (QP) has awarded the operation and maintenance contract for the Common Seawater Facility (CSF) in Ras Laffan Industrial City to SPIE Oil & Gas Services.
The five-year deal will see SPIE provide manpower, hand tools, vehicles, and other support services for the operation and maintenance of all existing and future equipment at the CSF.
This is the second time that SPIE’s contract has been renewed at the facility. Under the terms of the latest deal, QP will continue to carry out materials management, engineering, and maintenance planning, and will provide senior maintenance staff for the CSF.
Commenting on the deal, Yves Compañy, managing director of SPIE Oil & Gas Services, said: “The renewal of this contract for the second time is an acknowledgement of SPIE’s expertise and excellent performance on this job over the past 10 years.
“It demonstrates the high level of confidence Qatar Petroleum has in our operation and maintenance services,” he added.
Located 80km north of Doha, the Ras Laffan CSF supplies cooling water, desalinated water, potable water, and firefighting water for Qatar’s capital city. The facility’s capacity current stands at 1.166-million cubic metres per hour.
SPIE will provide services related to mechanical, electrical, welding, control systems, instrumentation, field operations, scaffoldings, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
The contract will be carried out by 127 SPIE employees, including coordinators, engineers, inspectors, and technicians.
The renewed CSF contract came into effect on 1 April, 2016.
