Libyan-Canadian joint venture Harouge Oil Operations has invited firms to bid for the deal to carry out surveys and studies for a new pumping system at the Amal field, located in the eastern Sirte basin.

Harouge Oil has set a deadline of 19 September for the submission of proposals.

The project covers surveys of the existing pumping station’s equipment and system, calculating its future needs, proposing a new system and drawing up a scope of works for the installation of a new control system and a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system.

Harouge Oil is a joint venture of state-owned National Oil Corporation (NOC) and Canada’s Suncor Energy. Crude from the 80,000 barrel-a-day (b/d) Amal field is pumped to the Ras Lanuf export terminal through a 36-inch pipeline.
