Uzbek Oil Company Re-Issues Wastewater Treatment Tender at Fergana Oil Refinery

16 November 2012

http://www.ooskanews.com of 11/16/2012 - Uzbekistan's National Holding Company and main oil refinery, Uzbekneftgaz, has announced a new tender for reconstruction of the industrial effluent treatment facilities at Fergana Oil Refinery.

Bids for the $14.35 million USD tender, which Uzbekneftgaz is financing by itself, will be accepted until December 2, 2012, the company said. It will announce the winner of the turnkey contract at the beginning of 2013, and the project is then expected to be completed within a year.

The treatment plant currently has a capacity of 16 million cubic meters of treated water a year. The reconstruction work will allow it to treat the effluent to a level where oil product outflow in the wastewater is no more than 1 milligram per liter.

The first tender for the project, worth $12.6 million USD, was announced in May 2011. It was annulled -- after numerous deadline extensions -- because none of the bidders could meet the tender conditions.

The Fergana Oil Refinery has a capacity of 5.5 million tons of oil a year and produces over 60 types of oil products.

The total capacity of Uzbekistan's three refineries - Bukhara, Ferghana and Altyarik Refinery - is 11.12 million tons.
