Kalpataru bids low for Oman gas pipeline

23 July 2008

India’s Kalpataru Power Transmission is low bidder at OR19.3m ($50.7m) for the contract to build the Oman Gas Company (OGC) gas pipeline network in southern Oman.

Kalpataru’s bid is marginally lower than the next best offer of OR20.5m submitted by the local Gulf Petrochemical Services & Trading (GPS). India’s Larsen & Toubro is ranked third on price at OR25m. Five other local and international contractors priced the work.

The engineering, procurement and construction contract (EPC) covers the construction of a 150-kilometre-long pipeline between the Nimr field and the port city of Salalah (MEED 23:1:08).

Two other parts of the project are currently out to bid.

Bids are due by 11 August for the EPC contract to build a new compressor station at the Nimr field. Bids are also due by 27 July for the contract to build the scheme’s new control room.

The gas will be used as feedstock for the Salalah methanol plant and the Salalah independent power project.
