This award demonstrates our organic growth ambitions in action, and attests to our strategy of a continued increase in our capabilities in India, a country which holds a special place in our service offering.

“Petrofac has thriving operational centres in Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi that provide engineering services through a multidisciplinary capability, supporting our projects globally.
