FEED awarded on sulphur pipeline

28 June 2002

The Parsons Corporation of the US has been awarded the front-end engineering and design (FEED) package on the project to construct a liquid sulphur pipeline in Abu Dhabi emirate. Awarded by Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Company (Gasco), the FEED package will take about eight months to complete (MEED 29:3:02; 21:9:01).

The 120-kilometre pipeline will take about 15 months to build. The scheme is estimated to cost $80 million-$90 million.

The proposed pipeline will be designed to carry liquid sulphur from Habshan to Ruwais. At present, sulphur produced from the first and second phases of the onshore gas development scheme and other projects are transported by truck. A conceptual study for the proposed pipeline was carried out by the US' Bechtel Corporation.

US-based VECO is the project management consultant on the proposed project. The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract will be tendered in the second quarter of 2003.
