Dubai headquartered Dodsal Group won three engineering and procurement contracts (EPC) in Sudan worth $230 million, marking its foray into the largest country on the African continent, a press release said.

The projects include a 741-kilometre multi-product pipeline system from Khartoum to Port Sudan for the Oil and Natural Gas Commission.

The second contract involves a 31,000 barrel per day field production facility at Adar/Agordeed from Petrodar Operating Co. Ltd, and a 280-kilometre section of their 32-inch diameter crude oil export pipeline leading to Port Sudan. All three projects are due for completion on a fast track.

"These projects bring the company's order book during the current quarter to a total of $500 million," Rajen Kilachand, chairman and president. "We are optimistic that Dodsal's order book will exceed $1 billion by early 2005."

In the UAE, Dodsal completed Dolphin Energy Ltd's 24-inch Al Ain-Fujairah Gas Pipeline project as well as Gasco's 32-inch Shuweihat Gas Pipeline project.

The company has commenced work on Adco's Buhasa Facilities Development Project with Snamprogetti on the civil, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation construction scope of work.

In March, Dodsal commissioned the northern Oman gas field to produce 155 million cubic metres per day, in ten months time - a contract awarded to the company by Occidental on a lumpsum EPC basis.

The scope of works cover collection, treatment, compression and metering of gas from five locations in Occidental's northern Oman acreage. Dodsal remains on schedule to complete the second phase of this project this month.

It successfully completed the mechanical and piping scope work this month on the 5.2 million tonnes a year LNG project at Damietta, Egypt, along with Kellog Brown and Root/Japan Gasoline.
