Tatweer Petroleum is working to implement the “De Potel Nick” project to improve the redundancy process for receiving re-transformed LNG between terminals.

The Alba gas station will be upgraded as part of the “De Po Tel Nick” project, and pipelines will be constructed between several stations which will be used from the Bahrain LNG terminal to the field for both sales and injection purposes.

Tatweer Petroleum invited private sector companies and contractors to participate in the tender to supply a pipeline for the first phase of the LNG project.

The tender document confirmed that those wishing to participate in the tender, who have the necessary competence, should purchase the tender documents electronically through the electronic tender system of the Tenders and Auctions Board.

The document stated that bidders must attach the amount of the initial guarantee of 5000 dinars or 1% of the value of the bid, whichever is less, and in all cases the value of the initial guarantee must not be less than 100 dinars.

The initial guarantee is presented in the form of a certified check, a bank letter of guarantee, an insurance policy from a local financial institution, in cash, or as stipulated in the tender documents, provided that it is valid for the period stipulated above.

It is noteworthy that Bahrain’s production of natural gas last year amounted to more than 921 billion cubic feet, compared to production of 886 billion cubic feet in 2020, with a growth rate of 3.7%.

Natural gas is consumed for energy production by the industrial sector, as the largest consumers of gas are the Aluminum Bahrain Company “Alba”, the Foulath Steel Company, and the Hadid Steel Company, as well as electricity production plants that consume large quantities of gas to generate electricity, such as the insulation station and the al-Dur station.

Among the major consumers of gas is the Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company, which converts gas into products such as urea, along with methanol and ammonia. Last year, the company produced about 1.6 million tons of urea, ammonia and ethanol.

It is noteworthy that Bahrain sells gas to the industrial sector and electricity production at a price of $4 per million British thermal units, which boosts the kingdom’s public treasury revenues.
