Four bid for Bu Hasa job

07 October 2005
Commercial bids were submitted in mid-September to Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Company (Gasco) for the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract involving the debottlenecking of the Bu Hasa gas plant. The bidders are the US/Canadian VECO, Paris-based Technip, US-based Foster Wheelerand Tebodin Middle East, part of Tebodin of the Netherlands. The project is aimed at the revamp of the existing train 1 to meet the original design capacity of 300 million cubic feet a day (cf/d - MEED 5:8:05).

Gasco plans more debottlenecking. Technip is understood to be the low bidder for the FEED contract covering the Thamama C gas plant. Its offer is about 2 per cent lower than the next price submitted by Australia's WorleyParsons. VECO and Tebodin also priced the contract. The project involves a revamp of the existing process plant, including the modification of the heat exchangers and compressors. The scheme is aimed at increasing sour gas handling capacity to 630 million cf/d from 540 million cf/d.

Gasco has invited companies to prequalify by 4 October for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to supply and install a 36-inch-diameter, 50-kilometre-long gas pipeline from Bu Hasa to Habshan. A tender is due to be issued by late October.
