Qatar Petroleum Issues EPC Tender

Qatar Petroleum September 14 said it has issued a tender invitation for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of additional liquid products storage and loading facilities and mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) storage and distribution facilities, which 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, it said.

The NFE project involves the addition of four mega LNG trains as part of Qatar Petroleum’s plans to expand Qatar's LNG production from 77mn metric tons/year to 110mn mt/yr by 2024. Qatargas is entrusted with executing this mega-project on behalf of Qatar Petroleum.
