The Agreement allows the two companies to work closely together and brings, to our projects, a significant depth of knowledge and breadth of skills within Petrofac as well as its extensive experience in the market, particularly with the supply chain. I think the way we have set up this Agreement brings an exceptional partner on board to take forward our projects; that PHE has not had previously.”
