Saudi Aramco has delayed the deadline for companies to submit bids to build a $250m bulk plant at Wasea, southeast of Riyadh.

The state-run energy giant has asked contractors to submit bids by 5 December, according to a Saudi-based contractor planning to bid.

The original deadline was 14 November.

Aramco has set a deadline of 29 February 2012 for the successful contractor to complete the plant (MEED 8:10:09).

The plant will handle an increase in petrol, diesel and fuel oil supplies to the region, with capacity to handle 185,000 barrels a day of oil. Saudi firm Dar al-Riyadh is the design contractor on the project.

The winning contractor will build tanks, petrol and diesel-loading pumps, as well as substations, and carry out civil engineering and structural work (MEED 21:8:09).
