Snamprogetti signs Kuwait gas station deal

24 June 2008
Italy's Snamprogetti has signed a KD179m ($676m) contract to build gas booster station 160 for Kuwait Oil Company (KOC), after the Central Tenders Committee approved its offer in May.

The Milan-based contractor was widely expected to win the lump-sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract after submitting the lowest bid for the work in November.

The firm beat competition from five other international contractors (MEED 9:11:07).

The three-year deal signed on 24 June covers the construction of a new booster station in southeast Kuwait, consisting of two identical single-stage compression trains, delivering 249 million cubic feet a day of sour gas from gathering centres 3, 4, 6, 7 and 21.

The scheme also involves the installation of a rich gas chilling system, a gas and condensate dehydration plant and scrubbers on the main feed line.
