Contractors have submitted bids for a contract to build a long-term testing facility at the Sabriyah field in Kuwait.
The client on the project is the state-owned upstream operator Kuwait Oil Company (KOC).
Bids were submitted on 17 May, according to information first obtained by regional projects tracker MEED Projects.
Bids were submitted by contractors after several deadline extensions. KOC originally tendered the project in December 2021 with a bid deadline of 22 March 2022.
KOC then pushed back the deadline to 26 April and subsequently to 17 May.
The project is estimated to be worth $50m and its scope includes:
- Construction of a long-term testing facility, an interim facility, and hydrocarbons recovery units
- Installation of well-testing systems
- Installation of the gas processing system
- Installation of the gas stabilisation system
- Installation of the water treatment and re-injection system
- Installation of the gas re-injection system
- Installation of the gas storage system
- Installation of the de-watering systems
- Installation of the crude oil treatment system
- Installation of other hydrocarbons production and treatment systems
The tender is one of many in Kuwait’s oil and gas sector that has been delayed in recent months.
Several key factors have negatively impacted oil and gas projects in Kuwait, including the country’s ongoing political impasse and repercussions from the Covid-19 pandemic.
