Ophir Says Two Bidders In The Fray For Fortuna Contract
Sept 15 (Reuters) - Oil and natural gas producer Ophir Energy Plc said on Thursday two consortia were bidding for an engineering contract over the upstream portion of its Fortuna Floating Liquefied Natural Gas platform (FLNG) in Equatorial Guinea.
Ophir said the upstream part of the project was "technically ready" for a final investment decision. The company said it had short-listed four potential partners for the downstream portion of the project.
Ophir has been searching for partners to help fund the Fortuna project, after oilfield services company Schlumberger walked away from a deal in June.
