UK-based PLE Engineering carried out the feasibility study for the third-phase expansion (MEED 9:11:01). The client, Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority (SEWA), has proposed a gas tariff of AED 1.25 ($0.34) a cubic metre for phase 3 customers.
SEWA plans further expansion of the network mainly to cover industrial users in the emirate. The proposed expansion will include the laying of over 125 kilometres of pipelines and related works.
PLE and the SS Lootah/BC Gas team carried out phases 1 and 2, which included the installation of a gas network to serve about 60,000 customers (MEED 1:12:00).
