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:
- 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.
- Supply Contracts: These include the procurement of steel pipes, SCADA systems and large diameter pipeline valves. These contracts will be managed by TAP directly.
