Adnoc is moving ahead with a plan to create a pool of service providers that will execute engineering jobs.

Firms invited by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) to bid for its planned pool of engineering service providers have submitted technical proposals, according to sources.

Adnoc had set 8 June and 14 June as deadlines for technical proposal submissions for tier 1 and tier 2 firms, respectively.

In April, MEED reported about Adnoc moving ahead with a plan to create a pool of oil and gas service providers that will execute engineering jobs for its projects across the value chain.

Adnoc plans to create two tiers within the pool, similar to the set-up it maintains for its framework structure of project management consultants (PMC).

Jobs for projects exceeding a value of $200m would be tendered to firms selected for tier 1, while tier 2 would receive tenders for projects under $200m.

About 15 companies have been invited to submit technical proposals. It is understood that Adnoc will set the commercial submission date upon receipt of technical entries.

Firms invited to bid for the proposed group are understood to be:

  • TechnipFMC (France)
  • Fluor (US)
  • KBR (US)
  • Wood Group (UK)
  • SNC-Lavalin (Canada)
  • Worley (Australia)
  • Penspen (UK)
  • ILF Consulting Engineers (Austria/Germany)
  • Mott Macdonald (UK)
  • Doris Engineering (France)
  • Saipem (Italy)
  • Samsung Engineering (South Korea)
  • Bilfinger Tebodin (The Netherlands)
  • Neste (Finland)
  • China Petroleum Pipeline Engineering (China)

Adnoc plans to exclusively tender concept selection, feasibility study (pre-feed), detailed design, and front-end engineering and design (feed) jobs for projects across its upstream, midstream and downstream businesses to this proposed pool of selected firms.

According to sources, selected companies would be awarded a framework agreement of three years, with a two-year extendable option available.
