PetroRabigh seeks bids for part of USD 8 bn complex

August 15/2011

(Arab News) -- PetroRabigh has asked contractors for expressions of interest in building parts of an estimated USD 6-8 billion second phase of its sprawling petrochemical complex in Saudi Arabia, industry sources said. The planned expansion includes engineering procurement and construction packages for seven processing units and three associated utilities projects, as per Reuters.

A total of 16 contractors in Saudi Arabia have been invited to express their interest in bidding for the RP1 package on Aug. 13. The work calls for some changes to the existing ethane cracker.
In June, PetroRabigh, a joint venture between Japans Sumitomo Chemical and Saudi Aramco started issuing bids for Rabigh II; the expansion of the complex on the Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia. Bids are due to close on Oct. 1.

In July, it offered a utilities package UO1 for bidding which is due by Oct. 31.
As part of the expansion, PetroRabigh would increase the capacity of the existing ethane cracker to take in an additional 30 million cubic feet per day of feedstock ethane.
