Libya pre-qualifies companies for strategic oil projects

The project’s focus is the installation of two reverse osmosis water treatment plants, including the construction of the buildings.

By MEED   

Libya has invited companies to pre-qualify for three projects in the country’s oil and gas sector.

The tender invitations have been issued by subsidiaries of the country’s National Oil Corporation (NOC).

Zallaf Libya Exploration & Production Oil & Gas Company has asked interested parties to submit pre-qualification documents for a project to develop six wells at the Erawin field, along with associated flowlines.

The project is estimated to be worth $700m, according to regional projects tracker MEED Projects.

The scope of work includes engineering, procurement, transportation, construction, erection, supervision, inspection, testing, training, and commissioning of the wells.

It also includes:

  • Performance testing of the wells
  • Civil and structural works such as conducting surveys and topographic work
  • Mechanical and piping works
  • Electrical works such as installing power cables and lighting
  • Instrumentation and control works such as installing cables and cable trays, and hooking up instrumentation

The approximate total length of the flowlines and trunklines in the project is expected to be 30 kilometres.

Companies that are interested in prequalifying to bid on the contract have been asked to submit documents by 31 May.

One of these water treatment plants will be constructed at the field’s natural gas liquids (NGL) plant, with a capacity of 100 cubic metres an hour (cm/h).

This will consist of two trains, each with a capacity of 50cm/h.

The other water plant constructed at the field will have a capacity of 150cm/h and will consist of two trains, each with a capacity of 75 cm/h.

MOG has said that the water treatment plants will either be fully automatic or manual.

The scope of the project will include:

  • Submission and delivery of all documents, drawings, and reports
  • Supply of spare parts and chemical materials for plant
  • Provision of training programmes for technicians and operators

  • Laying of pipelines and flowlines
  • Construction of burn pit facilities
  • Laying of fibre optic cable
  • Laying of electric cable
  • Installation of trunklines and flowlines
  • Installation of well pad process and utilities piping system
  • Installation of satellite process and utilities piping system
  • Installation of complete communications system
  • Installation of complete control systems and instrumentation
  • Structural works
  • Concrete works
  • Lighting works
  • Earthing works
  • Electrical and instrumentation works
  • Construction of associated facilities

Boosting production

Last month, Libya’s national unity government approved emergency financial arrangements for NOC in 2022, worth LD37.6bn ($7.9bn).

It is part of a drive announced by Prime Minister Abdel Hamid Dabaiba to improve operations in the country’s oil and gas sector and boost production rates.

The prime minister said that he initially wanted to increase the country’s production to 1.4 million barrels a day before the end of 2022.
