Dubai-based Drake & Scull International has announced that it has been awarded a AED226 million ($61.5 million) engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the construction of a water injection network installation project at the Zubair oil field in Basra, Iraq.

The contract has been awarded by ENI Iraq, a subsidiary of the Italian oil and gas multinational firm ENI, the company said in a statement.

Under the terms of the agreement, Drake and Scull Oil & Gas (DSOG) will oversee the EPC of a gas supply pipeline system to a power plant in addition to water injection systems consisting of flow lines, trunk lines, manifolds stations and wellheads hook-up work to enhance oil recovery.

Mobilisation activity on the project has commenced with a scheduled completion of early 2018, the statement added.

Wael Allan, chief operating officer of Drake & Scull International, said: “Drake & Scull Oil and Gas continues to achieve substantial progress and has gained a noticeable foothold in the oil and gas infrastructure construction sector in the MENA region in short period. The contract award has also raised DSI’s total project wins to AED570 million in very challenging circumstances.”
