Indian engineering and construction company Larsen and Toubro has submitted the lowest bid to construct feed pipelines as part of the Kuwait’s $15bn New Refinery Project.

Larsen and Toubro, partnered with the local Joint Scientific Group, have submitted a bid of $814m to Kuwait Oil Company for contract.

The next highest bidder is Dodsal with a bid of $922m. Saipem, Daelim and Petrofac submitted bids of $946m, $959m and $1,030m respectively.

The Kuwaiti National Petroleum Company first released plans to build the Al-Zour refinery in May 2008 but the project has repeatedly suffered delays.
