Technical proposals submitted for Jebel Ali gas terminal

20 August 2008
Technical bids have been submitted for the contract to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification terminal at Jebel Ali. Commercial prices are due to follow in mid-September.

Dubai Supply Authority (Dusup) plans to import LNG using a floating regasification facility. The gas will be used to supplement the emirate's existing supplies during peak demand in the summer.

It has selected the UK/Dutch Shell to advise it and act as project manager on the development phase.

Shell will also be the main LNG supplier and will continue to provide advice to Dusup once the facility is completed in 2010. Shell will source most of the LNG from Qatargas 4 in Qatar, a joint venture of Shell and Qatar Petroleum, under a 15-year long-term supply agreement (MEED 29:7:08).
