LONDON, Dec. 29 -- Qatar Shell Ltd. awarded Saipem SPA and two partners a €255 million contract for the engineering, procurement, and construction of an effluent treatment plant to serve the planned 140,000 b/d Pearl gas-to-liquids (GTL) project in Qatar (OGJ Online, July 27, 2006).

Saipem will partner with Abu Dhabi-based Al Jaber and will participate in a 50:50 joint venture with OTV, a subsidiary of France's Veolia Environment.

The plant, to be located in Ras Laffan Industrial City 85 km north of Doha, will treat water coming out of the two-train GTL complex. The effluent plant will be completed in two phases—in summer 2009 and summer 2010, respectively.

The $18 billion Pearl GTL also will be developed in two phases, with the first phase to begin producing 70,000 b/d of GTL products in 2009 and the second phase to be completed less than 2 years later.
