JGC Corporation recently declared that its affiliated company in Saudi Arabia, JGC Gulf International Co Ltd, has been awarded a contract for the gas pipeline / gas storage tank construction project in Awali, Bahrain, planned by the Bahrain National Gas Expansion Company (SPC) (BNGEC).
The contract covers for engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) services for gas pipeline and gas storage tank construction. The project is scheduled for completion in September 2018. The value of the lump-sum turnkey basis contract is approximately 10 billion yen.
This project is intended to construct feed gas and product gas transfer pipelines and product gas storage tanks to be used for the gas processing plant for which JGC signed a construction contract with BNGEC in January 2016. The produced oil component gases (LPG and naphtha) shipped from the storage facilities will be exported from Bahrain. The construction of these facilities is expected to contribute to the further economic growth of Bahrain.
JGC considers that the success in obtaining this contract is attributable to the result of an overall evaluation, namely, JGC Gulf International’s technological capabilities and cost competitiveness, JGC Group’s accumulated experience in a wide range of project execution in Bahrain, and synergy effects expected from the execution of the gas processing plant construction project which has been awarded to JGC and is now being executed by JGC.
