UAE-linked Petrofac gets major North Sea oil contract

Company has operational centres in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah



Oilfield services company Petrofac, which has significant operations in the UAE, has secured a new contract for oilfield development off the UK coast.

As reported by Emirates News Agency (WAM), under the terms of the agreement, Petrofac will provide facilities and well support to Jersey Oil & Gas (JOG) in the Greater Buchan Area of the North Sea, off the east coast of the United Kingdom.

Petrofac has seven operational centres worldwide, including in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. The company won a contract last month to provide managed maintenance services for the Haliba field, operated by Abu Dhabi’s Al Dhafra Petroleum.
