MONTREAL, March 7, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - SNC-Lavalin (TSX: SNC) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidary Kentz Overseas Company WLL has been awarded a five-year commissioning support services framework agreement by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO). Under the agreement, the company will provide a variety of systems completions, commissioning and start-up service activities on a portfolio of oil and gas megaprojects within Oman, such as the Rabab Harweel Integrated Project and the Yibal Khuff Project.
The framework agreement extends from 2017 to 2022. SNC-Lavalin's specialists will be fully integrated within PDO's commissioning and start-up management team. Services will include full systems completions, commissioning and start-up management, planning, consultancy, supervision, execution and administration of various oil and gas and related facilities.
