, a leading global provider of engineering and project management services to the energy industry, has secured a £1.8 million ($2.4 million) detailed engineering project contract from Galfar Engineering & Contracting Emirates for a major oil field project on the south-east border of Abu Dhabi.
The Haliba oil field, also known as the Area 1 onshore oil field, was brought on stream in July last year. It is owned and operated by Al Dhafra

Being developed in two phases, the Haliba onshore field is expected to reach up to 60,000 bpd production capacity by 2023.
Penspen said the EPC award will see the company undertake well tie-in work at the main Haliba oil field and peripheral prospects.

"Our MEA team has a stellar reputation of delivering work to the highest standard, and we are pleased that Penspen can play its part in providing EPC services to the Haliba oil field," he added.
