Kuwait issues US$800m oil booster station tender
State-owned oil giant continues investment in upstream projects
Reports from Kuwait have said that the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) has issued an US$800 million tender for the construction of an oil booster station in the west of the country.
Business intelligence specialists MEED reported that the contract being offered by the stae-controlled hydrocarbons giant will cover the construction of three high and low-pressure gas trains that will be fed sour gas from a number of different gathering centres.
The gas will then be processed at a rate of around 125 million cubic feet a day (cf/d).
While Kuwait has delayed a number of projects, especially in the downstream sector, it has committed to various upstream ventures this year.
