Orpic invites bids for flare gas recovery project
The use of flare gas recovery system in the facility will provide the dual benefits of energy conservation and emissions abatement
Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic) has invited qualified international contractors to bid for its contract for the implementation of a flare gas recovery system at its Sohar refinery.
The multimillion dollar project will enable Orpic to recover and process waste hydrocarbon gases into valuable fuel gas for use in the plant’s refining operations.
The use of flare gas recovery system in the facility will provide the dual benefits of energy conservation and emissions abatement by recovering, instead of flaring, process vent gases, said the company.
According to Orpic, the successful bidder will be awarded a contract for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) of a flare gas recovery unit, reported Oman Daily Observer.
Basic engineering for the plant has already been undertaken by John Zink, a US-based firm specialising in the design and manufacture of emissions control and clean-air combustion systems.
Orpic has set 5 September, 2016 as the deadline for the submission of commercial and technical bids for the contract, added the report.
