Bids imminent for PDO gas work

03 January 2003
Bids were due in early January for the contract to build pipeline infrastructure to link the new Saih Nihayda processing facilities with Saih Rawl and the main 48-inch pipeline supplying Oman LNG. Contractors have been asked to quote for three packages covering the supply and installation of a 32-inch-diameter gas pipeline, 12-inch-diameter condensate pipeline and a 4-6-inch-diameter water disposal line.

The project forms part of the central Oman gas fields expansion project, which is being undertaken to meet the feedstock requirements of the third liquefaction train at Sur (MEED 8:11:02; 5:4:02).

Tebodin Middle East, part of Tebodin of the Netherlands, has also been appointed to prepare the front-end engineering and design (FEED) package for a second 48-inch-diameter, 250-kilometre-long loop line that will eventually transport the additional volumes of gas required for the third train project.

Tebodin is also working on the FEED for the Yibal field depletion compression project. The scheme is intended to improve the flow of gas from Yibal, which has suffered from falling well pressure. The project entails the expansion of the existing compression train at Yibal with the installation of five compressors driven by15-MW gas turbines. A tender is due out in the second quarter. Petroleum Development Omanis the client for all three projects.
