Kentz said Wednesday that it has been awarded a contract award in Alaska, for the Point Thomson gas cycling and condensate production plant, its largest US contract to date.
Whilst a comparatively small award for the company, Kentz said its involvement in the early phases of the Point Thomson project has been extremely positive. Kentz didn't disclose the potential value of the contract.
In addition, the company says the award in Alaska could form a foundation for Kentz to expand into the region and build on the group's Arctic engineering and construction expertise.
The award, through Kentz USA, will be running for the next three years under the company's technical support services (TSS) business unit.
Working with local partner Jago Contracting Management, Kentz will undertake commissioning work in Arctic conditions. The project scope will include the mobilization of engineering employees into California and Washington as well as sending personnel into Korea for the fabrication requirement.
Kentz personnel will then follow the project to Alaska to participate in commissioning activities on site.
