O&G's bid was marginally lower than the next offer of KD19.4m ($71.9m), submitted by the local United Gulf Construction Company. Eight other local contractors also bid for the work.
The five-year contract covers the maintenance and repair of pipelines belonging to the client, state upstream operator Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) (MEED 13:5:08). Much of the state's pipeline infrastructure is ageing and requires significant corrosion monitoring and repairs.
Earlier in 2008, O&G won a contract to upgrade power systems at gathering centre 23 in the north of Kuwait for KOC (MEED 28:8:08).
The firm also submitted the lowest bid for a contract to build a new oil pipeline between transit line 3 and the Doha East power and desalination plant (MEED 29:4:08).
