The hydrocarbon business arm of Larsen and Toubro Ltd (L&T), India’s largest engineering conglomerate, has won a mega contract for an onshore gas compression project in the Middle East. 

L&T Energy Hydrocarbon said it recently secured a letter of intent for the project, which involves engineering, procurement, and construction of gas compression plants consisting of gas inlet facilities, gas compression system, produced water handling, propane refrigeration system, condensate transfer, and utilities for gas compression facilities in new onshore facilities and its integration with existing gas compression plants. 

L&T did not disclose the client country or the financial details but only said that it is a “mega onshore project from a prestigious client.”

Any project above ₹7,000 crore, or $840 million, is classified as “mega” by the Indian multinational conglomerate. 

To cater to the power supply requirements of the gas compression plants, three extra high voltage substations of 230 kV each will be set up by the power transmission and distribution arm of L&T Construction.

“One doesn’t get to win such an order every day. This is something unique for L&T and a matter of pride for India. This also shows our capabilities to perform and deliver on time and the enormous trust that our client has on us to manage such complex projects,” L&T chairman and managing director S.N. Subrahmanyan said. 

“Earning such a large order from a reputed customer is a reflection of our consistent commitment to excellence, quality, and customer satisfaction. We are deeply honored,” Subramanian Sarma, whole-time director and senior executive vice president (energy) at L&T, said.

L&T is a $23 billion Indian multinational engaged in engineering, manufacturing, construction, and services sectors, and operates in more than 50 countries.  L&T Energy Hydrocarbon offers integrated design-to-build solutions across the hydrocarbon sector to domestic and international customers.
