Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) has extended the deadline for companies to bid on sulphur treatment facilities at its Mina al-Ahmadi refinery.

KNPC tendered the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract in late April, setting a bid deadline for 19 June. This has now been extended to 12 July.

The project will include:

  • Liquid sulphur storage tanks
  • Liquid sulhur feed pumps
  • Granulator units
  • Belt conveyor system
  • Longitudinal stockyard for solid sulphur
  • Stacking machine
  • Reclaiming machine
  • Ship loader
  • Associated facilities

The new project is connected to a previous contract to upgrade the solid sulphur-handling and ship-loading facilities at Mina al-Ahmadi, which was won by South Korea’s Daelim in 2013. The contract won by Daelim had a value of $519m.
