Gasco releases tender for Habshan project
Abu Dhabi Gas Industries (GASCO) has invited bids from six major international firms to develop one of its largest gas fields as part of a five-phase onshore development program.
The state-owned company said it had just released its biggest ever enquiry for fixed priced lump sum contract for engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and start-up (EPC) works for its Onshore Gas Development Phase III (OGD-III) Project at Habshan, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
GASCO stated in a press release that the enquiry was issued to six pre-qualified bidders namely UK’s Bechtel, Japan’s Chiyoda, US-based Kellog Brown & Roots, Japan’s JGC, Italy’s Snamprogetti and France’s Technip. The company expects to receive the technical bids in March 2004 and plans to award the contract that same year. The plant start-up is slated for 2007.
OGD-III forms the biggest of all five EPC packages under the overall OGD-III and AGD-II Scheme. OGD-III is designed to produce 130,000 barrels per day of condensate and 11,800 tons per day of natural gas liquids (NGL).
The EPC package for Onshore Gas Gathering and Injection and Condensate Storage Tanks, associated with OGD III Project, will be released by Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Operations (ADCO) and Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (TAKREER) respectively. — (menareport.com)
