China’s CNPC and its partners Total and Petronas have invited oil service companies to bid for the redevelopment of 10 oil wells in the 4.1 billion-barrel Halfaya oilfield.
Bidders are invited to provide acid stimulation services on 10 wells within a one-year period to maximize the inflow area of the wellbore in oil and gas formations.
The tender closes on Sept. 27 and the offer stays valid for 90 days after the bid closing date.
The group also issued a tender for detailed engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and maintenance to build a temporary oil storage and filling station at Halfaya.
The first tender is an engineering, procurement and construction contract to build an oil storage and filling station, a person familiar with the project told Dow Jones Newswires.
The other tenders call for the supply of dual-fuel generators, complete defense system, and Toyota Land Cruiser and pickup cars.
In August, CNPC and its partners said they planned to start drilling new wells this month in the Halfaya field as part of a plan to boost output to 70,000 barrels per day in 2011 from 3,000 bpd now.
