The invitation to bid has been issued for three contracts on the estimated $250 million-300 million project to expand upstream gas infrastructure in the central Oman gas fields. Prequalified contractors have until March to submit technical bids and May for commercial offers.
Five companies attended the pre-bid meeting. They are Japan's Daelim Engineers & Construction Company; Sharjah-based Petrofac International, with the local Galfar Engineering & Contracting; Italy's Snamprogetti; France's Technip; and Canada's SNC Lavalin, with the local Al-Hassan Engineering(MEED 14:12:01).
The project has been divided into three engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) packages. The first involves adding 20 million cubic metres a day (cm/d) of new gas treatment capacity at Saih Nihayda with the option to install a gas-gathering network of 10 million cm/d.
The second EPC package covers the installation of wellhead compression facilities at Yiba. The final package centres on the installation of a 48-inch pipeline running from the gas field to Sur and the construction of a gas booster station. The project, which is being handled by Petroleum Development Oman, will eventually contribute feedstock to the proposed third-train expansion of Oman LNG.
