QP Issues Tender for North Field LNG Storage, Loading Facilities

​Qatar Petroleum has released a tender in an effort to expand its LNG storage, loading and export facilities for its North Field Expansion (NFE) project.

The tender package calls for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of two additional LNG berths with an option for a third LNG berth, and loading and return lines from the LNG berths to the tanks.

The package includes three LNG storage tanks, compressors to recover tank boil off gas during storage and jetty boil off gas during LNG vessel loading, and LNG rundown lines from the LNG trains to the LNG storage area.

“The issuance of this tender package will culminate in the award of this EPC contract by February 2020,” Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President & CEO of Qatar Petroleum, said.

“This tender package is part of a strong drive to put the various NEF project components in place, including four mega LNG trains that would expand the State of Qatar’s LNG production from 77 million tons per annum to 110 million tons by 2024.”

“This also includes the recently announced major LNG ship-building campaign expected to initially deliver 60 LNG carriers in support of the planned production expansion, with a potential to exceed 100 new LNG carriers over the next decade,” Al-Kaabi concluded.
