Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Company (Gasco) has invited companies to submit commercial bids by 9 June for package 3 on the offshore associated gas (OAG) project in the emirate. Four companies submitted technical bids in early April for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract. They were: Paris-based Technip, with Pakistan's Descon Engineering; India's Larsen & Toubro; Abu Dhabi-based National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC); and the local Dodsal (MEED 21:4:06).
The estimated $350 million-400 million contract covers the supply and installation of a 30-inch-diameter, 98-kilometre-long land pipeline from Ras al-Qila to Habshan for the processing of associated gas. Technical bids are due to be submitted on 31 May for packages 1 and 2, following an extension in the deadline. Both packages are worth a total of $600 million-800 million. Seven companies are prequalified to submit bids for package 1, which will cover the supply and installation of compressor and booster stations on Das island. For Package 2, five companies have been prequalified. The contract will entail the supply and installation of a 30-inch, 117- kilometre offshore pipeline from Das island to Ras al-Qila. The client for package 1 is Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company (Adgas); Gasco is handling package 2. The scheme is targeted for completion by the second quarter of 2008. The UK office of the US' Fluor Corporation has carried out the front-end engineering and design (FEED). Australia's WorleyParsons is the project management consultant (PMC).
