Larsen & Toubro Completes $803m KOC Project
L&T Completes $803m KOC Project
Larsen & Toubro has completed work on Kuwait Oil Company’s (KOC) Gathering Centre 30. The company was awarded the $803m contract for the project by the state-owned upstream operator in July 2014.

Interestingly, two other Gathering Centre contracts viz. GC-29 and GC-31 which were awarded to Dodsal and Petrofac respectively, around at the same time as L&T remain under execution.

The three gathering centre projects are part of KOC’s long-term strategy to develop the North Kuwait (NK) fields and increase crude production. To increase crude capacity, water will be injected into the reservoirs to enhance oil production. These gathering centres are intended to deal with the increased oil and associated water production.

Each gathering centre is expected to handle up to 100,000 b/d of oil, 240,000 barrels of water a day and 240 million cubic feet a day (cf/d) of associated gas.

KOC originally expected the three projects to all be competed in December 2018, but only L&T could meet its deadline and deliver GC-30 as per its expectations.
