UAE firm submits lowest bid for nitrogen pipeline

The engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract includes a 45 km, 48 inch diameter pipeline worth an estimated $US150 million.

Senior executives said that the Dodsal’s price of about $US60 million for the contract to build the pipeline linking Mirfa, west of Abu Dhabi with the Habshan oil field to the south of the capital was the lowest price entered in the bid round on 16 November 2009.

The pipeline is part of the joint venture industrial gas scheme of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) and Germany’s Linde known as Adnoc Linde Industrial Gases (Elixier).

The new pipeline will carry nitrogen from Elixier facilities at Mirfa to Habshan where it will be injected into the oil field, replacing the natural gas currently used by Adnoc.
