Cairn extends Raageshwari FEED deadline

Vol 19, PW 7 (03 Dec 15) News in Brief

Cairn India has extended by a fortnight from November 25 to December 11 the deadline to submit bids for a FEED report on the downsized project to set up an additional gas processing facility at the Raageshwari Deep Gas (RDG) field in Rajasthan.

“Cairn told us of the extension saying this was in response to requests,” says a likely bidder. Another source says Cairn has yet to respond to queries raised by likely bidders in this tender, first issued in early November.

“The time given to submit a bid is too short as the project has been reworked,” he says. Those expected to bid include Engineers India, Technip, Tecnimont, Uhde, Aker and Larsen & Toubro with Chiyoda.

Favourite Technip prepared the FEED for the original project, meant to handle 100m cf/d gas (2.8m cm/d). Cairn now wants the FEED for 60m cf/d (1.7m cm/d).

Also, the new edition of this project will have no gas pipeline component as this responsibility is now with Gujarat State Petronet.
