Two other contractors – South Korea’s SK Engineering & Construction and Sharjah-based Petrofac International – bid for the GC 27 contract. The contract calls for expanding the capacity of the GC located in the Umm Gudair oil field to 220,000 barrels a day (b/d) from 190,000 b/d. South Korean firms Hyundai Engineering & Construction Company, LG Engineering & Construction (LG E&C) and Daelim Industrial Company all declined to bid.

For the GC 28 contract, the other bidders are Petrofac, SK and SNC. The scheme is aimed at handling an additional 40,000 b/d of crude at GC 28, which is located in the 200,000-b/d Minagash field.

Parsons has completed the front-end engineering and design (FEED) work for both projects. US-based Fluor Daniel is acting as the project management consultant.
