The contract award was announced by Kuwaits Central Tenders Committee (CTC) on 17 August.
GS E&C, which is partnered with Kuwaits Al-Kazemi International, was the low bidder on the project, with a price of KD92.4m ($305.9m).
The budget for the project was KD99.96m.
The scheme is part of a larger restructuring of the countrys water network and will connect three gathering centres, known as GC29, GC30 and GC31.
Kuwaits oil fields are currently connected to 26 gathering centres, which serve as a collection location for crude produced at several wells connected by flow lines, providing initial treatment through the separation of associated gas and removing salt.
The three additional gathering centres are currently in the early stages of execution, after contracts worth a total value of $2.3bn were awarded in July 2014.
Five companies were expected to bid on the water network project, but only three submitted prices.
The list of bidders was:
- GS E&C, KD92.4m
- China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Corporation (China), KD95.1m
- Daelim (South Korea), KD104.7m
