DOHA: Qatar Petroleum announced that it 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 S.A.; JGC Corporation and Hyundai Engineering and Construction Co. Ltd; and Saipem S.p.A, 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 Qatar Petroleum’s plans to expand the State of Qatar’s LNG production from 77 million tonnes per annum (mta) to 110 mta by 2024.

Commenting on the announcement, His Excellency Mr. Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President & CEO of Qatar Petroleum, said: “This tender package comes in line with Qatar Petroleum’s plan to move into the next significant phase of the North Field Expansion project, which will culminate in the award of this 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.”

His Excellency Minister Al-Kaabi added: “Issuing this tender package further demonstrates Qatar Petroleum’s commitment to executing this 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 Qatar Petroleum. As the World’s Premier LNG Company, Qatargas has a well-proven history in delivering such major projects and in operating various onshore and offshore facilities in the North Field with a high degree of reliability and operational excellence.
