The request for proposals (RFP) is expected to be issued in July.
MPW awarded Turkey's Limak the KD1.3bn ($4.3bn) contract for the construction of Terminal 2 in 2016.
At the time, the award was made to a team comprising Limak and local firm Kharafi National, whose role, sources say, was limited to serving as local agent for Limak during the project bidding phase.
Terminal 2 is expected to handle 25 million passengers a year upon completion and accommodate all aircraft types through 51 gates and stands.
A third phase of the airport development is expected at a later date.
