Japanese engineering services firm JGC has secured a contract worth JPY40bn ($329.9m) to construct a gas processing plant in Bahrain.
The project will be located in the Bahrain oil field area south of Awali, near Jebel Al-Dukhan.
Under the contract, JGC will provide engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for the gas processing plant, which will be operated by the Bahrain National Gas Expansion Company.
The facility, with a daily throughput capacity of 350m standard cubic feet per day, will be used to recover high-value-added petroleum constituents such as LPG and naphtha contained in petroleum-entrained gas.
The client adopted a front end engineering design (FEED) design competition for the project, where bidders performed the FEED and later prepared EPC plans based on their FEED. This required the contractor to offer technical solutions in all processes ranging from front end engineering to construction.
The project is expected to be completed in September 2018.
