Duqm Gas Pipeline Project
The projects is about Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract to build a 36-inch-diameter, 221-kilometre-long sour gas pipeline in Duqm. This pipeline will connect the Saih Nihayda gas field with the port of Duqm in Oman. The pipeline will supply gas from Saih Nihayda a major gas hub in central Oman to the massive Special Economic Zone currently under development on the Wusta coast. The gas supply station is expected to receive about 15mn cubic metres of gas per day during the first stage. Apart from construction of the pipeline, the other scope of work also includes: - 8 block valve stations - Line pipes - Pig launcher and receiver - Pig indicator and instruments - Fittings, flanges, barred trees and isolation joint. According to an official of the SEZ Authority of Duqm, a corridor for the construction of the pipeline, linking the Saih Nihayda gasfield with Duqm, has already been delineated. Part of the roughly 25 million cubic metres (m3) per day capacity of the pipeline will be earmarked for a proposed Independent Power Plant, while some volumes will also be potentially used by a major refinery and petrochemicals complex planned at Duqm. The scheme is currently under study. Invitation to bid (ITB) for the EPC contract is expected to be issued in fourth quarter of 2011 or first quarter of 2012 . The contract will be awarded by the end of 2013 and the project will be completed by 2016, according to Oman Gas Company (OGC), which will supervise and manage the pipeline project.
