SNC-Lavalin (TSX: SNC) is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Globalstroy-Engineering as the prime sub-contractor to perform detailed engineering and procurement for Phase III Package 4 of the Kharyaga project. SNC-Lavalin will also provide project management support and commissioning services.

The Kharyaga oil field lies 60 km north of the Polar Circle, in the Nenets Autonomous Territory, in Russia’s oil-rich Timan-Pechora province. Phase III involves developing additional reserves, sustaining a daily output of 30,000 barrels a day, achieving 95% associated gas utilization and eliminating flaring.

There are several challenges to overcome at this site including the harsh environment, the fluid characteristics (H2S, paraffin), the remoteness of the site’s existing infrastructure and the need to maintain simultaneous operations (SIMOPS), which require the adoption of sophisticated technical solutions.

The work, which will be executed over a 23-month period, has already begun and will be executed in SNC-Lavalin’s London, UK and Moscow offices with extensive support from its partially-owned Russian design institute OAO Vnipineft in Moscow.

“We are delighted with this award“, said Jean Beaudoin, Executive Vice-President, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. “We have been active in Russia and the former Soviet Union for many years, and have great confidence in this market. We are particularly pleased that we can benefit from Vnipineft’s knowledge and experience on this challenging project.”

SNC-Lavalin is one of the leading engineering and construction groups in the world and a major player in the ownership of infrastructure, and in the provision of operations and maintenance services. SNC-Lavalin has offices across Canada and in over 35 other countries around the world, and is currently working in some 100 countries. In business since 1911, the Company celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2011.
