LG is reviewing options for subcontracting out all or part of the construction work, which is expected to take 20 months. Companies were invited to respond by 30 November to an inquiry for construction, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation work on the project. However, some prospective candidates requested an extension to the deadline, and their proposals are not expected until mid-December. The decision on whether to subcontract work out will be made by the start of next year, once LG has had an opportunity to review the pricing proposals (MEED 15:11:02).
