Contractors are preparing to submit bids on key oil and gas projects as the 8 March deadline for the Al-Zour Refinery process packages and the Mina al-Ahmadi fifth gas train approaches.
The process packages for the Al-Zour refinery are known as packages one, two and three and have a total value of $9.6bn.
Packages four and five are for the tankage and marine facilities respectively. Bids for both schemes are currently under evaluation.
The construction of the $14bn Al-Zour New Refinery Project in the divided zone shared by Kuwait and Saudi Arabia is part of a wider push to overhaul the countrys refining sector, improving the quality and quantity of the refined products produced.
In February, six Kuwaiti oil and gas packages worth a total of $11.6bn saw extensions to their bid deadlines, including the Al-Zour New Refinery Project packages and the fifth gas train.
