24 October 2010

Saudi Aramco has extended the deadline for engineering firms to submit bids to build the kingdom’s biggest gas plant, Reuters has reported, citing industry sources. The Wasit gas plant would be designed to process 2.5 billion cubic feet per day (cfd) of gas from the offshore non-associated gas fields Arabiyah and Hasbah and produce around 1.75 billion cfd of sales gas, Aramco said. Construction of the plant is split into four packages that include a gas unit, a cogeneration power plant, a sulphur recovery unit with utilities and natural gas liquids fractionation facilities.
