Akakus seeks interest in Murzuq gasoil plant

04 February 2009

Libyan/European Akakus Oil Operations has asked firms to express interest in prequalification for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract on a new gasoil separation plant.

In a document released by Libya's National Oil Corporation (NOC) on 4 February, Akakus said that companies hoping to prequalify for the work should apply by 1 March.

The 100,000-barrel-a-day (b/d) plant would be constructed at the consortium’s IR field in the Libyan Murzuq basin, 700 kilometres from Tripoli.

The scope of work includes: two separation trains of 50,000 b/d each; storage tanks; oil shipping facilities; high pressure and low pressure flaring systems; fire detection and fire fighting systems; control systems; a control and workshop building; an electrical substation; and gas compression and export facilities.

Akakus is owned by a consortium of Libya’s NOC, Spain’s Repsol, Austria’s OMV, and France’s Total.
