Request for Contact Details - BP Khazzan 132kV Intertie
BP is seeking contact details from companies interested in and able to deliver the 132Kv Intertie construction scope below. This scope will be further described in a sourcing event, the first stage of which will be an Expression of Interest (EOI), issued through BP’s sourcing system, Ariba OneSource.
Responses are invited from companies able to provide and complete the following high level scope:
BP Khazzan 132kV Intertie
As part of the BP Khazzan Project, a new 132kV connection from Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) is required. The 132kV supply will be provided for Commissioning and Start-Up, and potentially as a back-up to onsite generation. We are inviting expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced companies in the construction of a 132kV intertie.
The 132kV OHL circuit will be supported on a combination of concrete poles and/or steel lattice towers for approximately 26km from PDO Mussallim to the BP Khazzan 132kV Switchyard. The BP Khazzan Switchyard shall consist of a single incoming circuit including circuit breaker and all other switchyard and SER auxiliary equipment. The existing PDO Mussallim 132kV Switchyard will be extended by one additional bay for the BP Khazzan Project. This new bay is located on the east side of the PDO Mussallim Switchyard. The BP Khazzan switchyard will also include an SER, which will house equipment such as, but not limited to Tariff Metering, Communication equipment including patch panels, protection relays, small power and UPS distribution panels.
A pre-condition for installation agreement from PDO is that the successful company must be an approved PDO contractor for installation of Overhead Lines.
Access to the site is via graded (unpaved) desert road from Qarn Alum in the south or Fahud in the north. From the EWT site a graded road extends approximately 30km westwards, past the proposed Central Processing Facility site. Most of the locations are located within 5km across open desert from this graded road. Other locations are significantly further from existing vehicular access routes; however access to most areas is unlikely to be a significant problem as the desert surface is generally flat and firm and accessible by 4x4 vehicles.
Applicants should note that BP is committed to deliver safe, reliable and efficient operations wherever we operate. Our HSSE performance is critical and our commitment is clear: “no accidents, no harm to people, no damage to the environment”. This commitment applies equally to anyone working in or around Khazzan Project operations, including Contractors and Third Party suppliers.
Khazzan Project defines HSSE as a line management responsibility, and expects leaders to lead and set an example to the workforce under their control. Khazzan Project will require the Contractor senior managers to take direct responsibility for the HSSE performance of their own workforce and to ensure that their Sub-Contractors are required to accept the same level of responsibility for their own workforce.
An Authorisation to Operate (ATO) process will apply to the work. ATO is a process where the contractor representative and company representative and other relevant personnel of the parties meet, before mobilisation, and review the contract and the HSSE plan to verify that contractor has the processes and procedures, the equipment and the necessary skilled, competent personnel to safely perform the work as required by the contract. contractor shall conform to the ATO prior to the pre start-up safety meeting.
