New bid extension for Kuwait sulphur treatment facilities

10 August 2016

Deadline has been pushed back three times now

Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) has extended the deadline for companies to bid on sulphur treatment facilities at its Mina al-Ahmadi refinery.

KNPC tendered the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract in late April, setting a bid deadline for 19 June. This has been extended three times, with bids pushed back from 14 August to 20 September.

The project will include:

  • Liquid sulphur storage tanks
  • Liquid sulphur feed pumps
  • Granulator units
  • A belt conveyor system
  • A longitudinal stockyard for solid sulphur
  • A stacking machine
  • A reclaiming machine
  • A ship loader
  • Associated facilities

The new scheme is connected to a previous contract to upgrade solid sulphur-handling and ship-loading facilities at Mina al-Ahmadi, which was won by South Korea’s Daelim in 2013. The contract won by Daelim had a value of $519m.
