Qatar Petroleum has announced that it has issued an invitation to tender package for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) to expand its common lean LNG storage, and the loading and export facilities for its North Field Expansion (NFE) project.

According to the statement, the tender package was issued to world class contractors, and calls for the following: the EPC of three LNG storage tanks; compressors to recover tank boil-off gas (BOG) during storage and jetty BOG during LNG vessel loading; LNG rundown lines from the LNG trains to the LNG storage area; two additional LNG berths with an option for a third LNG berth; and loading and return lines from the LNG berths to the tanks.

Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President & CEO of Qatar Petroleum, said: “Issuing this tender package reflects Qatar Petroleum’s unique contracting strategy approach for the North Field Expansion Project. Under this strategy, we have identified the need for multiple EPC packages that can match the execution expertise in the EPC contracting community for specific scopes of work while providing the opportunity for multiple EPC contractors to participate. The issuance of this tender package will culminate in the award of this EPC contract by February 2020.

“This tender package is part of a strong drive to put the various NFE project components in place, including four mega LNG trains that would expand the State of Qatar’s LNG production from 77 million tpy to 110 million t by 2024. This also includes the recently announced major LNG shipbuilding campaign expected to initially deliver 60 LNG carriers in support of the planned production expansion, with a potential to exceed 100 new LNG carriers over the next decade.”
