Contractors have submitted bids for a $200 million Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract to build new gas processing facilities in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates (UAE), reported MEED.
Among the bidders are Lebanon’s Contracting and Trading and Sharjah’s Petrofac International. The winner will be commissioned with building two onshore trains, each with a capacity of 300 million feet of gas per day, a sulphur recovery unit, granulation and storage facilities at the Sajaa field.
Sharjah’s oil and gas production comes from the small offshore Mubarak oil field discovered in 1973 and the Sajaa field discovered in 1980. Making good use of the associated gas from Sajaa, Sharjah now has its own gas liquefaction plant. Its marine facilities include two main ports the Khorfakkan Port and the Khalid Port. — (menareport.com)
