The main tenders committee of Azzawiya Oil Refining Company (ARC), a subsidiary of Libya’s National Oil Company (NOC), has invited contractors to prequalify for a project to upgrade its lube oil blending and facilities.

The project will include increasing the capacity of ARC’s Lube Oil Blending Plant from 40,000 tonnes a year (t/y) to 100,000 t/y.

It will also require the contractor to supply and install equipment including a simultaneous metering system, automatic batch-blending units, supply lines and tanks.

Blending systems and the control system for heating tanks and pipelines will need to be upgraded.

The revamp will also include modifications to existing buildings at the Lube Oil Blending Plant to accommodate the new equipment.

Civil works such as the construction of foundations, drainage, pavements and road crossings will also be included in the contract.

Contractors looking to take part in the prequalification process have been told to submit their documents to Azzawiya Oil Refining Company by 30 June.
