Chiyoda Almana awarded RasGas contract

Chiyoda Almana Engineering, one of the leading construction contractors in Qatar, said it has won a long-term engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services contract from RasGas Company.

Established in 2001, RasGas is a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and an affiliate of ExxonMobil.

According to the deal, Chiyoda Almana will provide EPCM services required for projects that support the operations of RasGas onshore and offshore facilities.

Commenting on the contract win, Mamoru Nakano, the operation director of Gas & LNG Project Operations 1 and senior VP at Chiyoda Corporation, said: “We have a strong business relationship with RasGas, and are indeed honoured to be awarded the RasGas long-term EPCM services contract which will definitely strengthen these business ties.”

The five-year contract will also cover small to medium-sized projects for a total of seven liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants and three large-sized gas processing plants, helium plants and other facilities operated by RasGas at Ras Laffan Industrial City.

RasGas CEO Hamad Mubarak Al Muhannadi said: “With the signing of this new five-year term contract, we hope to ensure continued efficiency in completing ongoing projects, maintaining the highest safety standards and drawing on the benefits of Chiyoda Almana’s familiarity with our operating assets and brownfield execution capability developed during the previous EPCM contract.”

“As a world-class supplier of energy, RasGas is committed to deliver the best results in operational excellence,” he added.
