Cairn Oil & Gas, Vedanta Ltd., has let a contract to Petrofac for a new operations and maintenance contract to support Cairn’s Mangala processing terminal (MPT) in Rajasthan, northern India.
MPT, spread over 1.6 sq km, processes crude oil produced from Rajasthan block RJ-ON-90/1, which is spread over 3,111 sq km in the Barmer district. Cumulative production from the block is more than 500 million bbl. After processing, crude oil is transported to refineries through a continuously heated and insulated pipeline.
The 60-month contract is valued at about $60 million.
The award follows a Cairn’s selection of Petrofac earlier this year for integrated operations and maintenance services in support of upstream oil and gas infrastructure at Ravva oil and gas field in Andhra Pradesh. Petrofac also previously completed a lump-sum EPC contract, which Cairn awarded in April 2018 for its RDG field development project.
