ONEE issues tender for Morocco LNG power project

ONEE issues tender for Morocco LNG power project

Morocco’s power utility ONEE has launched an international tender in order to select technical advisor for the development of the country’s LNG to power project.

In order to secure the increasing national demand of electricity Morocco is looking to diversify its sources of fuels supply, mainly through increasing the share of natural gas in its energy mix, stands in the ONEE’s filing.

According to the tender, Morocco’s LNG to power project would entail the construction of the marine jetty at Jorf Lasfar, as well as the LNG import terminal, including the LNG storage.

ONEE intends to connect natural gas pipelines to the combined cycle power plants and eventually the natural gas underground storage facilities.

A high-pressure gas pipeline will be built to connect the LNG terminal to the existing Maghreb-Europe high-pressure gas pipeline.

Under the planned project, Morocco intends to set up 2400 MW capacity of combined cycle power plants (CCGTs), which will be fired up by the natural gas provided by the LNG import terminal.

ONEE informed that all interested parties should submit their bids no later than October 21, 2015.
