Qatar’s North Oil Company (NOC) is evaluating technical bids from leading players for four engineering, procurement and construction packages comprising the third phase of its Gallaf project, which involves the Al Shaheen offshore oilfield.

At least three people familiar with the development said that technical bid offers for the four EPC packages were recently submitted to NOC, with commercial offers likely to be submitted within weeks.

“Technical bids have been submitted and the operator is presently evaluating the offers,” one person confirmed.
