Local contractor wins $35-40m pipeline contract

The local Alsa Engineering & Construction has been awarded a deal by Abu Dhabi Gas Industries (Gasco) estimated at $35-40m to build a nitrogen pipeline between industrial sites at Mirfa and Ruwais.

According to a source close to the project, a letter of award was issued in early November to Alsa, although this could not be officially confirmed.

The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract covers a 16 inch, 75-kilometre pipeline running from the nitrogen plant by UAE-Germany joint venture, Elixir to the Borouge petrochemicals complex at Ruwais.

Elixier is a a joint venture of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and Germany’s Linde Group.

Alsa was also competing for a deal to build an acid-flare gas system at the gas processing complex in Habshan, also valued at at $35m, but lost out to Pakistan’s Descon Engineering  (MEED 10:10: 11).
