Kuwait Oil Company to build new crude oil flowlines across the country

Kuwait’s Central Tenders Committee (CTC) has approved the local Heavy Engineering Industries & Shipbuilding Company (Heisco) for a KD42.9m ($151m) contract to build crude oil flow lines in the west of the country.

The deal was approved on 25 December. A contract is now expected to be signed with the client, state-upstream operator Kuwait Oil Company (KOC).

Heisco submitted the lowest bid for the deal in mid-October, beating rival proposals from eight other firms.

It also bid for a separate deal to build flowlines in the southeast of Kuwait, although its price came in third place to the local Mechanical Engineering & Contracting Company, and Combined Group Contracting Company.
