Qatar Petroleum (QP) has issued the Invitation to Tender Package for Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) of the four Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) mega-trains of its North Field Expansion (NFE) project.
The package has been issued to three EPC Joint Ventures: Chiyoda Corporation and Technip France SA; JGC Corporation and Hyundai Engineering and Construction Co Ltd; and Saipem SpA, McDermott Middle East Inc and CTCI Corporation.
The tender calls for the engineering, procurement and construction of the four mega-LNG trains with gas and liquid treating facilities, ethane and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) production and fractionation, a Helium plant, and utilities and infrastructure to support the processing units. The four-mega LNG trains are part of QP plans to expand Qatar’s LNG production from 77 million tonnes per annum (mta) to 110 mta by 2024.
Minister of State for Energy Affairs and QP President/CEO HE Saad Sherida Al Kaabi said the tender package is in line with their plans to move into the next significant phase of the North Field Expansion project, which will culminate in the award of the EPC contract in January 2020.
We are pleased to have the participation of three international joint ventures with outstanding EPC contractors; and we look forward to a highly competitive tender.’
Al Kaabi added that issuing the tender package further demonstrates QP’s commitment to executing the milestone mega-project.
It comes at a time when all activities related to the project are progressing well and according to plan at all fronts, and I am pleased to announce that further contract awards related to the project will be announced shortly.’
The package issue follows the recent contract award for the fabrication and installation of eight NFE offshore jackets to McDermott Middle East, and the contract award for early site works for the onshore project to the joint venture between Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) and Teyseer Trading and Contracting Company.
Qatargas is entrusted with executing this mega-project on behalf of QP. As the World’s Premier LNG Company, Qatargas has a well-proven history in delivering major projects and in operating various onshore and offshore facilities in the North Field with a high degree of reliability and operational excellence.
