Jordan seeks EPC contractor to build new fuel base
Terminal housing 300,000 tons of fuel near Amman funded by Abu Dhabi
The Jordanian Government has issued a tender for an EPC contractor to build a major new terminal to hold strategic reserves of petroleum and LPG.
The Kingdom's Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) has said the new terminal must be capable of storing up to 300,000 tons of gasoline, kerosene, diesel and jet fuel as well as 8,000 tons of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
The project, known as Amman strategic Reserve Terminal for Petroleum Products (ASTPP) has been funded by Abu Dhabi's government through the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development.
It is being built to the east of the Jordan's capital, Amman.
The terminal will contain storage tanks, loading and unloading facilities, a fire fighting system, electricity supply, drainage and treatment systems for oily and clean water as well as new workshops, offices and laboratories.
MEMR is looking for a contractor capable of completing the work on a turn key, lump sum basis.
Contractors need to prequalify, and show experience of delivering similar projects in the past. Interested firms need to collect the necessary pre-qualification documents by 1 September and complete them by 1pm on 13 September.
