The tender calls for the EPC of the four mega-LNG trains with gas and liquid treating facilities, ethane and liquefied petroleum gas production and fractionation, a helium plant, and utilities and infrastructure to support the processing units.

"This tender package comes in line with QP’s plan to move into the next significant phase of the NFE project, which will culminate in the award of this EPC contract in January 2020," according to HE Saad Sherida al-Kaabi, Minister of State for Energy Affairs as well as president and chief executive of QP.
Stressing that this tender package further demonstrates QP's commitment to executing this milestone mega-project; he said it comes at a time when all activities related to the project are progressing well and according to plan at all fronts.
"I am pleased to announce that further contract awards related to the project will be announced shortly,” al-Kaabi said
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 has been entrusted with executing this mega-project on behalf of QP. It 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.Last updated: April 15 2019 08:14 PM
