Up to five leading international contracting giants are set to compete for a sizeable contract for Qatargas’ North Field Production Sustainability (NFPS) project.

Qatargas recently issued tender documents to multiple offshore contracting players for a key engineering, procurement and construction and installation package, which forms part of the country’s NFPS development, at least three people familiar with the development told Upstream.

The subsidiary of state-owned QatarEnergy is carrying out the tender process for multiple packages comprising the giant North Field as it presses ahead with billions of dollars in investments to expand and maintain its production capacity.
