Gas from Midyan field set for power plant in Dheba
Saudi Aramco has launched a tender to develop a gas processing facility to supply a power plant from the Midyan field, according to Reuters. Seven companies are set to submit bids to construct the plant, which has a planned processing capacity of 75 million standard cubic feet per day, by the end of November.
The contract also includes the construction of a pipeline to transport the processed gas to a power plant in the western city of Dheba. The reported value of the scheme has been pegged at around US $800 million.
At the same time, Aramco also invited tenders for an upgrade to its 124,000 bpd oil refinery in Riyadh. Bids are expected by October 20, and the final contract is expected to cost approximately $300 million.
