Prequals due for crude oil pipeline

28 July 2003
Companies are invited to prequalify by 11 August for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build a mixed feedstock pipeline to link the refineries at Muscat and Sohar (see Tenders; MEED 2:5:03).

The proposed 260-kilometre-long, 24-inch-diameter pipeline will primarily transport crude oil and naphtha from Mina al-Fahal to Sohar. It will have capacity of up to 116,000 barrels a day (b/d). The project also includes the construction of a pressure reduction terminal (PRT), pumping stations and pipeline controls incorporating supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), telecommunications and leak detection systems.

Total project costs are estimated at $120 million-140 million. Banks are due to submit bids by end-July for the financial advisory position on the proposed project (MEED 18:7:03).

ILF & Partners Oman, a subsidiary of Germany's ILF & Partners, has carried out the front-end engineering and design (FEED) studies for the proposed pipeline. Oman Gas Companyis the client (MEED 21:2:03; 17:1:03).
