The joint venture partners behind the US$10 billion Shah gas development have named at least 10 contractors who are prequalified to bid for engineering, procurement and construction(EPC) contract for a gas-gathering plant.

Business intelligence service MEED reported that the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and US-based ConocoPhillips will invite bids from 25th of August to carry out the contract, believed to be worth around $1 billion. The deadline for bids is December 21.

"It is good that they are pushing ahead with it, but I think it will be a while before they get anything awarded because there are problems with the sulphur pipeline package and firms are asking for deadline extensions on the other deals," MEED reports a contractor as saying.

The list of contractors prequalified to bid includes Technip (France), GS Engineering & Construction, Hyundai Engineering & Construction and SK Engineering (South Korea) l Dodsal and National Petroleum Construction Company (UAE), Tecnicas Reunidas (Spain), Saipem (Italy), Petrofac (UK) and Techint of Argentina.

In June it was reported that the project could be subjected to a delay due to complications with the 275-kilometre-long sulphur pipeline that will link the Shah with process plants at Habshan and a sulphur-export terminal at Ruwais.

The sulphur flowing through the pipeline must be kept at a constant temperature of between 125-155 degrees centigrade at all times.
