LOS ANGELES, Oct. 26 -- Algeria’s Sonatrach has received bids from four international companies for the contract to perform front-end engineering and design services for the Tiaret refinery project.
The bidders are Technip, Sinopec, Saipem, and CB&I Lummus.
The 300,000 b/d refinery, which is expected to cost $6 billion to build, is scheduled to start up in 2014, and will produce gas oil, gasoline, kerosine, butane, propane, and naphtha for both export and domestic consumption.
