TAP Re-Launches Procurement Process for Pipeline Project
TAP has taken the decision to re-launch its procurement process, following a review of its strategy and schedule. TAP will therefore initiate new pre-qualifications for goods and services that the natural gas pipeline project requires.
The revised pre-qualification process should ensure maximum opportunity for national and international suppliers to take part in this important and strategic project.
TAP will re-launch the process to procure goods and services in the following main areas:
1. Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC): The majority of suppliers who will be requested to pre-qualify this year will be for Engineering Procurement Construction services. These include for example: onshore and offshore pipeline construction services, compressor stations and Pipeline Receiving Terminal construction.
2. Supply Contracts: These include the procurement of steel pipes, SCADA systems and large diameter pipeline valves. These contracts will be managed by TAP directly.
Companies with the relevant experience can apply.
TAP will provide clear guidance to companies with regard to participation in the tender processes.
