Pakistan: Malaysian firm to build gas plant

A consortium led by engineering and construction company Ranhill Bhd (Malaysia) has been awarded a letter of intent (LOI) to construct a gas-processing plant for state-owned Pakistan Petroleum Ltd. A source said the Adhi gas processing plant is valued at USS 21 million. Ranhill holds a 70% stake in the consortium, while the rest is held by the DDFC Group of Companies of Pakistan. Construction work is expected to start in November and the project is scheduled for completion within 18 months of the issuance of the LOI, which is dated 5 May. The source said the consortium, however, plans to complete the job in 17 months as the project management team has already been mobilised prior to the project award. The first six months will be spent on the designing and the engineering aspects of the plant, the source said. Adhi Gas Processing Plant II, located in the district of Chakwal near Rawalpindi, will be designed to process feedgas from Adhi onshore fields to produce liquefied petroleum gas, natural gas liquids and sales gas. According to the source, the project was secured through an international bidding exercise with competition from South Korean and North American companies. It is similar to six gas-processing plants in Kertih, Terengganu, which were all constructed by South Korean and Japanese companies.
