Contractors are preparing to bid on five separate oil project contracts in Libya, which are all being tendered by the country’s National Oil Corporation (Noc) on behalf of its subsidiary and have bid deadlines in April this year.

One oil facility project in Libya is for the installation of new ultrasonic flowmeters for a naphtha loading unit.

The project contract includes the engineering, design and supply of all materials, as well as construction.

Bids for the project are due on 19 April 2020.

The scope of another contract includes carrying out required repairs to a crude oil storage tank known as Tank 5.

The bid deadline for this contract is 5 April 2020.

Three contracts for intelligent pigging are also being tendered.

Intelligent pigging is an inspection technique where an inspection probe, often referred to as a ‘smart’ pig, is propelled through a pipeline to gather data, such as the presence and location of corrosion or other irregularities on the inner walls of the pipe.

One contract is for the intelligent pigging of a 30in gas pipeline from Al-Sahel to Field 103.

The second is for the intelligent pigging of 91.5km of 16in condensate pipeline to Brega.

The third is for the intelligent pigging of 30in and 12in gas pipelines from Sirte Oil Company’s Alestiqlal field.

The bid deadline for all the pigging contracts is 5 April 2020.
