Gulf News

Dodsal recently won two major contracts - a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant construction contract in Egypt and the Mahdah-Buraimi gas pipeline project from Oman Gas Co.

In the Egyptian project, the project owner - Spanish Egyptian Gas Co - has awarded the EPC contract to the joint venture of Kellogg Brown & Root, JGC and Tecnicas Reunidas who, in turn, awarded the construction work of the process train to Dodsal.

The LNG train (five million tonnes annually), first to be built in Egypt, will also be the largest single LNG train in the world. The Egyptian contract is for the project at Damietta on the northeast coast. Construction is scheduled to be completed in August 2004.

Meanwhile, Oman Gas Co awarded Dodsal the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract of the pipeline which will facilitate transportation of Omani gas to the UAE.

This 45 kilometre, 24-inch gas pipeline will tie in to an existing gas pipeline at Mahdah in Oman and will terminate at the Oman-UAE Buraimi border. The gas will be utilised as feedstock for the power and desalination project being constructed at Qidfa in Fujairah.

Dodsal is already executing for Dolphin Energy Ltd on an EPC basis, the 200-kilometre gas pipeline from the tie-in point of the Mahdah-Buraimi pipeline at the Oman-UAE border to Qidfa.

Moreover, Dodsal has recently successfully constructed - ahead of scheduled time and on an EPC basis - the 680 Saih Nihayda to Salalah gas pipeline for the Oman Gas Co.

It has also completed two liquefaction trains of the Oman LNG plant (each 3.3 million tonnes annually) in Sur, Oman, and is constructing the two process trains of MLNG Tiga project (each 3.6 million tonnes annually) in Bintulu, Malaysia.
