11 December 2018
Last bid submission date for construction contract is 13 March 2019

Malaysian oil and gas company Petronas, the lead operator of Iraq’s Garraf oil and gas field, has tendered an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) job to build a gas dehydration plant at the project.

The EPCC job is part of the second phase of the $5bn Garraf oil field project, located in Iraq’s Dhi Qar governorate.

Petronas is the operator of the project, with a 45 per cent stake in the project, with Japan’s Japex and Iraq’s state-owned North Oil Company owning 30 per cent and 25 per cent shares respectively.

The last date for submission of bids is 13 March 2019.

According to an industry source, the value of the contract is estimated to be between $300m-$350m.

The scope of work calls upon the contractor to execute EPCC works for the gas dehydration plant, as per the tender document from Petronas. This includes provision for:

  • Low Pressure Recovery System (LPRS)
  • Feed Gas Compression and Separation
  • Acid Gas Removal Unit (AGRU)
  • Gas Dehydration Unit, and
  • Gas Export Compression

The gas dehydration plant is to be designed to handle 110 million standard cubic feet of associated gas a day from the Mishrif and Yamama developments.

The project’s operators are looking to ramp up the field’s oil production to 230,000 barrels a day by 2020-end from about 90,000 currently, as per a plan that the Iraqi government approved in April.

A consortium of China Petroleum Pipeline Engineering & Construction Corporation (CPECC) and Italian firm Progetti Europa & Global (PEG) is working on another project to expand the crude oil treatment capacity of the Garraf project.
