Dubai-based Habtoor Leighton Group, a joint venture between Leighton Holdings Ltd. (LEI.AU) and Al Habtoor Group, said it has been awarded a sub-contract for the construction of infrastructure in Southern Iraq and is part of an engineering, procurement and construction project to deliver a central production facility.
HLG's initial scope of works includes the partial engineering, and construction of civil, utility, and infrastructure works, it said in an emailed statement. No value was given for the project.
Work will commence immediately, with completion scheduled for early 2014.
HLG Chief Executive Laurie Voyer said the project is in line with company's strategy to diversify its work by type and geography and is the first contract it has been awarded in Iraq.
