The award of the first engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract, covering the tankage package at Ras Laffan, is imminent on the Qatargas II project. Four international groups and companies are competing for the contract, which is expected to be worth about $150 million. Two groups are also preparing to submit commercial bids in early November for the gas liquefaction plant contract, which is the biggest on the estimated $11,000 million integrated development. The project, which is being implemented by Qatar Liquefied Gas Company II (Qatargas II), calls for the delivery of 15.6 million tonnes a year (t/y) of liquefied natural gas (LNG) into the UK starting in late 2007 (MEED 16:7:04).
