Gasco prequalifies 12 for Habshan carbon recovery scheme

09 February 2011

Contract is estimated to be worth $260m

Abu Dhabi Gas Industries (Gasco) has prequalified twelve international engineering and construction firms to bid for an estimated $260m deal to build carbon dioxide recovery and injection facilities at the Habshan field in the southwest of the emirate.

The firms will submit technical proposals on 1 March and commercials bids by 12 April, according to sources close to the deal. A number of bidding firms have asked for a two week extension to prepare bids, but this has not yet been confirmed by Gasco.

Prequalified firms include:

  • Hyundai Engineering & Construction
  • Tecnimont
  • Samsung Engineering 
  • SK Engineering & Construction (SKEC)
  • Technip
  • Saipem SpA
  • Dodsal
  • Larsen & Toubro Limited
  • Punj Lloyd Limited 
  • Consolidated Contractors Company
  • National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC)
  • CTCI Corporation

Gasco is expected to launch another five projects this year including a scheme worth about $160m, which will see nitrogen gas from Elixier, a joint venture of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and Germany’s Linde Group, injected into Gasco’s gas fields. Front-end engineering and design (feed) work on these projects has been completed (MEED 14:1:11).

A related project, the Nitrogen Breakthrough, Nitrogen Recovery (NBNR) scheme, will prevent the injected nitrogen from seeping back to the surface, and is expected to be tendered in mid-2011.
