The first major engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract has been awarded on the Qatar Liquefied Gas Company II (Qatargas II)project, with Japan’s Ishikawijima-Harima Heavy Industries (IHI)receiving a letter of intent for the Ras Laffan storage tanks package. The award, valued at about $160 million, covers the construction of two cryogenic storage units with an option for a third. Commercial bids for the main plant contract on the estimated $11,000 million integrated gas project are due to be submitted in the first week of November, while the tender is expected to be issued to prequalified EPC contractors in November for a new sulphur handling facility which will serve Qatargas II and the Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas Company II (RasGas II)developments (MEED 24:9:04).
