Foreign firms eyeing energy consulting tender

Ten international consulting firms have submitted expressions of interest to the energy ministry’s open tender seeking a consultant for the oil and gas business.

The tender, announced in June, seeks a consulting company that can help the ministry create joint ventures for oil and gas exploration, as well as for the construction and maintenance of pipelines.

The foreign firm will be required to form a joint venture with a local firm. That joint venture will provide consulting services to the ministry.

Among those submitting expressions of interest are Jones Day and Berwin Leighton Paisner of the UK, France-based Schlum-Berger Business Consulting, Singapore-based Rajah and Tann, and two Germany-based firms: Ficthner GMBH and Roland Berger Strategy. Vietnam-based EP Legal has also submitted an expression of interest.
