The Dubai-based subsidiary of Italian contractor Progetti Europa & Global (PEG) has emerged as the lowest bidder in the second phase of Bahrain’s state-owned Tatweer Petroleum’s Awali oil and gas field expansion project.

Tatweer Petroleum is looking to build two gas dehydration unit (GDU) trains at the Awali field in southern Bahrain, with each having a capacity to process 500 million standard cubic feet of gas a day (cf/d), as part of the expansion project.

Five contractors submitted bids for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.

The list of bidders and prices, as published by Bahrain’s official Tender Board, is:

  • DMCC (PEG Engineering & Contracting) - $185m
  • Petrofac International (Bahrain) SPC (UK-based) - $195m
  • JGC Gulf International Company (Japan) - $294m
  • CB&I Nederland (part of US’ McDermott International) - $295m
  • TDE Overseas (Canada) - $232.35m. TDE’s bid was suspended.

The scope of work on the project, apart from executing the EPC works on the two GDU trains, include construction of processing plants, storage tanks, drilling of additional wells, and installing a 60-kilometre pipeline.
