The 24-month Taweelah contract calls for the construction of a gas receiving terminal with ultimate capacity of 3,200 million cubic feet a day and the installation of a 48-inch-diameter pipeline to tie into the existing Maqta-Jebel Ali pipeline. Three other contractors were competing for the contract.

An award is also expected soon on the umbilicals package, which will connect Dolphin’s two platforms in the North field in Qatar to its gas processing plant at Ras Laffan. Commercial bids were submitted in late October for the contract. Companies to submit technical bids for the contract are Technip, the UK’s CTC Marine Projects, Italy’s Sonsuband France’s Nexans.
