Petrofac in the Americas

United States

We support the US onshore and offshore energy community, particularly in the Permian basin and the Gulf of Mexico.

Supporting across the asset life cycle, we provide engineering, maintenance, management and operations support services for assets in upstream, midstream, and downstream.

Our US team is primarily focused on the delivery of operational engineering, project management, procurement and operation services, including operational readiness (for greenfield projects) and maintenance support (for brownfield projects and production operations). We provide specialist technical support to add further value.

Our training and competence solutions complement our wider activities, helping our clients to achieve operational competency across their organisation, assets, and the regions they operate.

Technical excellence drives results

Our engineering capability spans concept and feasibility phases, through project execution and into construction, commissioning and start-up. We draw on Petrofac’s global engineering resources to drive absolute value for our clients. We have worked hard to become a trusted partner for our clients.

Global relationships and buying power

As a Tier 1 global contractor, we have existing and proven alliances with fabrication and construction contractors across the world. We leverage these relationships, our experience of major projects to optimise value throughout the projects we deliver.

Commercial flexibility

We are flexible too, supporting small reimbursable man-hour projects, discrete detailed design and procurement contracts through to minor and major modification projects. And we deliver through a range of service contracts, including Master Services Agreements (MSA), EPCM, Project Management Contractor (PMC) and owner’s engineer contracts.

Expanding our capability in the Permian

In 2019, we acquired W&W Energy Services to support our growth in the US onshore services market. The combination of W&W’s footprint and strong local brand and Petrofac’s engineering, modifications and project delivery capability and experience will support us in delivering more for clients in the region.
