Gastrade has anounced a tender seeking construction firms for pipeline development linked to a floating LNG terminal (FSRU) planned for Alexandroupoli, northeastern Greece.
The FSRU project, taken on by Gastrade, is envisaged to be connected to Greece’s natural gas grid.
Construction companies have been invited to submit bids for two pipeline sections – submarine and overland. The split of the LNG terminal’s pipelines into two sections is expected to help local construction firms participate in the international tender.
The project’s technical planning stage, funded by the EU, is expected to be completed within the third quarter of the current year; the tender for the project’s construction is scheduled to proceed in the fourth quarter of this year; while a final decision is planned for the first quarter of 2018, Gastrade has announced.
Gastrade has set a September 15 deadline for bids.
