LONDON -- Petrofac, an international service provider to the oil and gas industry, said it, Linde and GS Engineering & Construction Corporation have been engaged by KLPE to provide services to the development of its Integrated Petrochemicals Complex and Infrastructure project, in the Tengiz and Karabatan regions of Kazakhstan worth up to $3.58 billion in total.

The first part of the contract is worth $77 million, of which $21 million is Petrofac's share, and will involve the consortium undertaking engineering work on an open book estimate.

Petrofac will lead the consortium for the execution of the Integrated Petrochemicals Complex and Infrastructure, or IPCI, project.

Subject to satisfactory conclusion of the open book estimate, and successful contract conversion, it is contemplated that the IPCI project will move into a second phase, in excess of $3.5 billion, for a polyethylene plant comprising two streams each producing 400,000 tpa of product.

Eventual scope for the IPCI petrochemical project will include the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of a gas plant, ethane cracker, gas pipelines, polyethylene plants and associated utilities and offsites in the Tengiz and Karabatan areas.
