QP issues EPC tender for North Field expansion

20-09-2019

Qatar Petroleum (QP) has issued “Invitation to Tender” packages for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of additional liquid products storage and loading facilities and mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) storage and distribution facilities.

These will be located in Ras Laffan Industrial City and will be part of the North Field Expansion (NFE) Project.

New facilities covered under this tender include a new propane storage tank, vapour recovery compressors for propane and butane tank refrigeration, a plant condensate storage tank, a MEG storage tank and distribution system, a new liquid products export berth and liquid product lines from the main NFE plant location to the liquid products storage area.

Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the president and CEO of Qatar Petroleum said: “The release of this tender package reflects the continuing progress Qatar Petroleum is making on the expansion of our LNG production capacity.

“With the volume of associated liquid products the NFE project will generate from offshore production and onshore gas processing, it was necessary to expand our existing storage and loading facilities. The unique approach in our contracting strategy for the multiple EPC packages allows us to match the execution expertise in the EPC contracting community to this specific scope of work.”

The NFE Project involves the addition of four mega LNG trains as part of Qatar Petroleum’s plans to expand the State of Qatar’s LNG production from 77 million to 110 million tons per annum by 2024.
