The contract, valued at more than 700 million euros, covers engineering, materials procurement, and construction services. Work is scheduled to complete in 29 months.

The 6.66 billion cu m/year plant will be built on the Libyan coast 80 km west of Tripoli. It will treat raw gas and liquid hydrocarbons from Libyan offshore fields and will supply products with specifications proper for sale.
