Kuwait Plans $2.2 Billion in Power Development

LCG, Oct. 1, 2001--The Kuwait Ministry of Electricity & Water has formally appointed U.S. firm Parsons Brinckerhoff International as consultant for three new power stations, to be built at an estimated cost of $2.2 billion.

The three projects, approved last month by the Kuwait cabinet, include the 2,500 megawatt Al-Zour North project which will cost an estimated $1.8 billion. The two other projects are a 600 megawatt plant at Shuaiba and a 400 megawatt facility at Subiya. The cost of those two is expected to be about $420 million.

The big Al-Zour North project is expected to begin commercial operations in the second half of 2006, while the two smaller plants are penciled in for mid-2003.

According to the Middle East Economic Digest, the next stage in the projects will be the preparation of tender documents for engineering, procurement and construction contracts. For Al-Zour North, the government has looked at a build-operate model, the publication said.

The new plants will be fueled by natural gas, provided by the proposed Qatar-Kuwait pipeline. Kuwait plans to import between 800 million and 1.4 billion cubic feet of gas per day from Qatar's North field.
