The cut-off date for bids for the estimated $500m-600m Bul Hanine Redevelopment Phase 1B package has been extended to 2 July from a previous deadline of 11 June, according to information gathered by regional projects tracker MEED Projects.

At least six companies have been prequalified to bid for the package. They include:

  • McDermott (US)
  • National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC; UAE)
  • Saipem (Italy)

The Bul Hanine redevelopment project is expected to more than double the field’s current production rate from 40,000 to 95,000 barrels a day (b/d) and extend the life of the field by over 25 years.
