The company was established as producer of a modular plant in Tyler, Texas, USA in 1981.[3] It was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2005.[3] In 2010, it bought a 20 percent share in the Gateway storage scheme, an undersea cavern for gas storage.[4]

In November 2013, Petrofac and the Italian oil firm Bonatti partnered on a $650 million joint venture contract for Sonatrach, adding to the firm’s already significant presence in Algeria.[5]

In November 2014, the company issued a profit warning, saying that profit for 2015 will fall by 25%, as slowing demand in China and abundant US output cuts the oil price.[6]
