State-owned Petrochina has released a tender for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a power substation and distribution line at the Halfaya oil field in the southeast of Iraq.

Interested EPC firms have been given until 15 August to submit their proposals. A document fee has been set at $100.

The project includes the construction of a 33/11kV substation, along with civil and electrical equipment at the northeast camp of the Halfaya field.

It also includes the installation of a 11kV overhead power transmission line, which will connect alongside two existing 33kV lines from the central processing facility.

Petrochina, a subsidiary of state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), leads the development of the 4.1-billion-barrel Halfaya oil field along with France’s Total, Malaysia’s Petronas and state-owned Missan Oil Company.
