The hydrocarbon division of Indian engineering conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has won an EPC contract worth INR17bn ($264m) for the construction of an oil pipeline in Kuwait.
Under the contract, awarded by Kuwait Oil Company (KOC), the firm will be responsible for provision of EPC services for new 48” Crude Transit Line (TL-5) from North Kuwait to Ahmadi.
“The order was won against stiff international competitive bidding which reinforces L&T’s unique capability to deliver 'design to build' engineering and construction solutions across the hydrocarbon spectrum,” L&T said in a statement.
Work on the project is set to be finished in the third quarter of 2020.
At present, L&T is delivering Gathering Centre - 30 (GC - 30) project for Kuwait Oil Company.
L&T is engaged in technology, engineering, construction, manufacturing, and financial operations across the globe.
The firm’s hydrocarbon unit provides EPC solutions for the oil and gas industry from front-end design through detailed engineering, modular fabrication, procurement, project management, construction, installation, and commissioning services.
