Japan-Taiwan venture wins Qatar deal
Doha, May 14, 2013
Qatar has awarded a contract to build the $1.5 billion Laffan 2 refinery to a joint venture of Japan's Chiyoda Corporation and Taiwan's CTCI Corporation, state-run Qatargas said on Tuesday.
The contract to build and commission the light oil refinery was signed by Qatari energy minister Mohammed Al-Sada and the heads of the two east Asian engineering companies in Doha on Tuesday.
No financial details were given. The project was valued at $1.5 billion when Qatar Petroleum, the parent company of Qatargas, signed a joint venture agreement with a consortium led by France's Total in April. - Reuters
