    2.0                                        FOCUS




Major opportunities in the construction sector remain prevalent in Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Iraq in
2012. There is at least an estimated $500 billion investment opportunity regionally, in energy,
transportation, education, healthcare and other critical sectors of economic development.

The positive outlook comes despite the grappling with challenges and delivery issues related to current
projects.

Large infrastructure projects, particularly around social and transport infrastructure, will offer tremendous
opportunities for contractors, as will continuing upstream and downstream oil and gas related developments
in the coming years.

Of the biggest investments currently underway is Qatar’s plan to spend $100 billion in preparation for
hosting the 2022 Fifa World Cup and achieving its 2030 vision, and Saudi Arabia’s capital spend programme
approaching $400 billion over the next 10 years alone. The Deloitte report indicates that although there are
massive opportunities associated with huge construction spend, many project sponsors still have to deal with
illiquid projects and debt.

Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Abu Dhabi have an additional objective, which is the need to diversify their
economies away from the traditional petrochemical and hydrocarbon industries. This is also driving
infrastructure spending in these countries. These countries are now looking at how to take advantage of
existing strengths to develop upstream industries — and the focus has shifted to construction.

There are vast opportunities across the Middle East, with longer-term infrastructure investment plans for the
region estimated to be in excess of $1 trillion. This figure, as research shows, may continue to rise as
governments assess the impact of the Arab Spring on priority investments. In addition, the uprisings have
been credited with positively influencing infrastructure investment, forcing governments to accelerate
spending programmes in order to meet citizens’ higher expectations. In terms of projects in the pipeline
across the Middle East, the majority are social at 36 per cent, followed by power-related (29 per cent),
transport, and in oil and gas (13 per cent each).

The UAE is ranked as the second largest market with investments worth $9 billion allocated to buildings,
infrastructure and energy sectors in the first quarter of 2011. Abu Dhabi, in particular accounted for 70 per
cent of the total $20 billion of contracts awarded between the first and third quarters of 2011. Driving this
growth, with over $12 billion in awarded contracts, the emirate is placing particular attention on transport,
utilities and social infrastructure.

In addition, the Abu Dhabi government has a long term investment programme to upgrade its airports,
seaports and public transport system to cater to the growing population.

P. E.P.C.

PROJECT EXPORTS PROMOTION COUNCIL OF INDIA (PEPC)
India is a country with large and diverse infrastructure sector. The Government of India recognized the
imperative need for the infrastructure sector and takes several initiatives like Committee of Infrastructure,
National Highway Development Project (NHDP), National Maritime Development Programme (NMDP), Tax
Holidays etc for the development and promotion of the sector. In the recent years, there has been several
improvements in sectors like roads & highways, ports, railways and airports, the policy and regulatory
framework is already in place and investment in infrastructure has risen considerably however there are still
significant gaps that need to be bridged.
With a view to create a platform for all the stakeholders and for the conclusive growth & development of the
Infrastructure sector, PEPC works with the Central and Foreign Governments, National & International
development organizations like World Bank, Asian Development Bank etc, Government Agencies, and
various other stakeholders to promote the Project exports.
PEPC discusses policy, regulatory and procedural issues with its members, industry experts etc. and advice
appropriate reforms to the government for the development of the project exports. For making conducive
business environment PEPC highlights encumbrances being faced by the industry players in the process of
development of the sector and interacts with various national / international agencies for making feasible
measures to overcome those encumbrances.
PEPC supports the Government in its efforts towards projecting the project exports. It act as a reference
point for investors (Domestic & International) interested in the sector and provide information related to
government guidelines, investment opportunities, government & development agencies (which are involved
in the development process of the sector).
For promotion of the sector PEPC works proactively and suggests necessary procedures during the process of
policy formation, budgetary allocation, forming legal framework etc. by the government. To maintain smooth
progress PEPC also insist government to make essential provision for timely upgradation of the policies on
the      basis    of    regular      feedback     from     its    members       and    industry    players.

PEPC organizes several investment promotion programmes, conferences, seminars, workshops, etc on
regular basis for facilitating interaction between various government agencies, international bodies, industry
players and its members that provide prospects to raises issues pertaining to the sector and exchange ideas.
These networking events provide a platform to share thoughts, explore business opportunities among the
varied stakeholders of the project sector. These measures help to analyse the present developments and
identifies the ways to overcome the constraint of the sector.
PROJECT EXPORTS
Project Exports from India commenced with a modest beginning in the late 1970s. Since then, project
exports have evolved over the years, with Indian companies demonstrating capabilities and expertise
spanning a wide range of sectors. The nature of Project Exports being undertaken reflects the technological
maturity and industrial capabilities in the country. Project exports are broadly divided into four categories:

      Civil construction
      Turnkey modules
      Consultancy services
      Supplies, primarily of capital goods and industrial manufactures

Each of the above are explained here:




                                                      3
                                                                           Global Project Opportunities: June, 2012

Civil construction projects

Construction projects involve civil works, steel structural work, erection of utility equipment and include
projects for building dams, bridges, airports, railway lines, roads and bridges, apartments, office complexes,
hospitals, hotels, and desalination plants.

Turnkey projects

Turnkey projects involve supply of equipment along with related services and cover activities from the
conception stage to the commissioning of a project. Typical examples of turnkey projects are: supply,
erection and commissioning of boilers, power plants, transmission lines, sub-stations, plants for manufacture
of cement, sugar, textiles and chemicals.

Consultancy services

Services contracts, involving provision of know-how, skills, personnel and training are categorised as
consultancy projects. Typical examples of services contracts are: project implementation services,
management contracts for industrial plants, hospitals, hotels, oil exploration, charter hire of rigs and
locomotives, supervision of erection of plants, CAD/ CAM solutions in software exports, finance and
accounting systems.

Supply contracts

Supply contracts involve primarily export of capital goods and industrial manufactures. Typical examples of
supply contracts are: supply of stainless steel slabs and ferro-chrome manufacturing equipments, diesel
generators, pumps and compressors.

Project export contracts are generally of high value and exporters undertaking them are required to offer
competitive credit terms to be able to secure orders from foreign buyers in the face of stiff international
competition. Exim Bank plays a pivotal role in promoting and financing Indian companies in the execution of
projects. It has been closely associated with the growth of project exports from India by way of providing
finance, information and business advisory services. The bank supports Indian companies at all stages of the
project cycle from advance tender information, guidance in preparation of competitive bids to providing
financial facilities, including loans and guarantees. It extends funded and non-funded facilities for overseas
industrial turnkey projects, civil construction contracts, as well as technical and consultancy service
contracts. Exim Bank has in place a specialised cell to provide advance information to Indian companies on
projects being funded by multilateral funding agencies in various countries. Over the past two decades,
increasing number of projects have been executed by Indian companies in North Africa, West Asia, South &
South East Asia, CIS and Latin America.

The Reserve Bank of India has simplified the procedures for project and service exports, such as deployment
of temporary cash surpluses and inter-project transfer of machinery and funds. These measures, first
announced in the Mid-Term Review of Annual Policy Statement for 2006-07, will provide more flexibility to
exporters. The RBI said that the measures were subject to monitoring by banks. Exporters will now be
allowed to use the machinery or equipment used for a turnkey or construction abroad, for executing a
contract in another country. Currently, exporters are required to dispose of the equipment, machinery,
vehicles purchased abroad or arrange their import into India after completion of the contracts. If it has to be
used for another overseas project, the market value should be recovered from the second project. Under the
modified procedures, the RBI has permitted exporters to deploy their temporary cash surpluses, generated
outside India, in instruments such as deposits with overseas branches or subsidiaries of a bank in India, a
triple `A' rate short term paper abroad, including treasury bills and other monetary instruments with a
maturity or remaining maturity of one year or less. Now, exporters are required to approach the RBI for
overseas deployment of their temporary cash surpluses. The apex bank has also permitted exporters to
open, maintain and operate one or more foreign currency account in a currency of their choice with inter-
project transferability of funds in any currency or country.

Secondary National Roads Development Project (SNRDP): Contract Package CP1

Borrower/Bid No: IFB/SNRDP/CP1/330100

The Millennium Challenge Corporation (“MCC”) and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines have
entered into a Millennium Challenge Compact for Millennium Challenge Account assistance to help facilitate
poverty reduction through economic growth in the Philippines (the “Compact”) in the amount of
approximately 434 MillionUSD (“MCC Funding”). The Government, acting through the Millennium Challenge
Account – Philippines (the “Employer”), intends to apply a portion of the proceeds of MCC Funding to eligible
payments under a Contract associated with this Invitation for Bids (“IFB”). Payments by the Employer will be
subject, in all respects, to the terms and conditions, including restrictions on the use of MCC Funding, of the
Compact. No party other than the Government and the Employer shall derive any rights from the Compact
or have any claim to the proceeds of MCC Funding.

 The Compact program includes projects that would reduce poverty through economic growth. The objective
of the Program is to increase the incomes of Filipinos through the benefits of community-driven sub-projects,
obtain time savings and lower transportation costs for road users in Program areas and increase investment
and government expenditure due to an increase in tax revenue and a reduction in corruption.
The governing documents of the Compact include, among others, the following requirement:
           Procurement of goods, works, and services by the Government, or any applicable provider
            providing goods, works, and services, to implement the Program will not be subject to any
            domestic preference, local content, or local labor requirements.

The Compact which would be implemented in a 5-year period, contains the following components:
         Secondary National Roads Development Project (SNRDP). The project objectives are to save
          time, lower vehicle operating costs for those Filipinos living near the roads, improve profitability
          and marketability of goods carried on the roads, improve access to social services among
          communities serviced by the roads, and improve road safety.

           The Kapit-Bisig Laban saKahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services
            Project (KALAHI-CIDSS). The project objectives are (i) improve the responsiveness of local
            governments to community needs, (ii) encourage communities to engage in development
            activities and (iii) deliver benefits to barangay residents through individual sub-projects.

           Revenue Administration Reform Project. The project objective is to strengthen surveillance and
            discipline of Department of Finance and its attached agencies through administrative actions
            such as temporary suspensions or dismissals. RARP is geared toward addressing corruption in
            the tax system, and thereby generating more revenues for government.

The project involves the construction/rehabilitation of existing roads and bridges that includes road
widening, pavement strengthening, improved drainage and traffic calming measures. The project will
incorporate enhanced safety measures in the final road designs including paved shoulders, construction of
sidewalks and curbs where pedestrian activity is higher, improved road marking, installation of road furniture
and the creation of a ‘buffer zone’ through populated areas.
SNRDP Road Rehabilitation Project will be undertaken under the following four contracts located in Region 8
of the Philippines; Samar and Eastern Samar Provinces:
       CP1: Contract Package CP1: “Road Rehabilitation, Buray Junction to Barangay Tinani (16.3 kms);

A Ppp Arrangement For The Provision Of International Broadband Connectivity To Malawi
Through The Installation And Operation Of A Fiber Optic Cable From Lilongwe To Dar Es Salaam
And Onward Transit Over Submarine Fiber Optic Cable

Project ID: P111432
Borrower/Bid No: RCIPMW\SERV\05\12-11

                                                     68
                                                                            Global Project Opportunities: June, 2012

1 Background

This invitation for prequalification follows the general procurement notice for this project that appeared in
Development Business No. WB 3920 of 17 September 2009 on-line and in DG Market.

The Government of the Republic of Malawi has received a credit from the International Development
Association (IDA) towards the cost of the Regional Communication Infrastructure Program – Malawi Project
(RCIPMW), and it intends to apply a portion of the proceeds of this credit to payments under the contract for
A PPP arrangement for the provision of international broadband connectivity to Malawi. The Privatization
Commission intends to prequalify telecommunication firms for the provision of international broadband
connectivity to Malawi through the installation and operation of a fiber optic cable from Lilongwe to Dar es
Salaam and onward transit. It is expected that invitations for bid will be made in August, 2012.

Prequalification will be conducted through prequalification procedures specified in the World Bank's
Guidelines: Procurement under IBRD Loans and IDA Credits, May 2004, revised October 2006 and May 2010
and is open to all bidders from eligible source countries, as defined in the guidelines.

2 Scope of the Assignment:

The Government as a party to the PPP agreement intends to use its purchasing power to lower the demand
risk of the project and therefore the cost of international broadband connectivity. The Government through
the PPP arrangement seeks to attract new private sector investment in Malawi's fiber optic
telecommunication backbone infrastructure with the objectives of diversifying international routes and
reducing international connectivity prices through increased competition. The winning bidder will be required
to offer a specified menu of international telecommunication services at the virtual landing point to be
established in Lilongwe. The designated route for the services is from Lilongwe to the Tanzania Border in
Karonga, a distance of about 670 km. Several drop off points (less than 10) in the Malawi leg of the network
will be required. The winning bidder will be mandated to supply services to both the Government and all
requesting telecommunication operators and commercial subscribers in Malawi on a non-discriminatory
basis.

In addition, the Electricity Supply Commission of Malawi ("ESCOM") will offer the winning bidder the option,
but not the obligation, to access and use its electricity transmission facilities for the installation and
operation of a telecommunication network from Lilongwe to a point near the prescribed interconnection point
at the Tanzania border on agreed terms and conditions between the two parties.

The winning bidder, in order to perform its obligations to provide telecommunication services to Malawi, and
as a significant private sector component of the public-private partnership, will have to construct, install,
maintain and operate a Virtual Landing Point (VLP) and the fiber optic cable telecommunication system
between the VLP in Lilongwe, Malawi and an interconnection point at the Malawi-Tanzania border with
corresponding fiber optic telecommunication facilities in Tanzania. Onward terrestrial and submarine transit
(to recognized Tier 1 suppliers at international interconnection points such as London and Frankfurt) must
also be over fiber optic cable, but may be provided by the winning bidder either on a reseller or facilities-
based operator basis. The contract price, for services offered to Government, will be paid by the
Government in installments upon commencement of the delivery of service against specific performance
standards, all as specified in the IFB and contract.

3 Licensing Requirements

To provide bidders with advance notice of the license terms that will be applicable to the winning bidder, the
Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority ("MACRA") will offer a form of license as part of the bid
package included in the IFB, with the assurance that the winning bidder will be awarded a license on
substantially the same terms. Each incumbent telecommunication operator whose existing license(s)
already permit(s) some or all of the activities covered by the offered license will be required, as a condition
of bidding, to agree to the amendment of its existing license(s) to incorporate the obligations set forth in the
offered license, if it is selected as winning bidder and awarded a contract to provide telecommunication

                                                                              Global Project Opportunities: June, 2012

services to the Government and the general public. Accordingly, applicants for prequalification to bid will
have their applications reviewed by the PC with the involvement of MACRA, and a determination that an
applicant is prequalified to bid will also include a determination that it is prequalified to be issued a license in
the form included in the bid documents accompanying the IFB.

4 Invitation for Applications

In the process initiated by this invitation for bidder prequalification, the PC intends to prequalify
telecommunications service providers with the requisite experience and qualifications (whether single
entities or joint ventures of entities) to supply such telecommunication services to Malawi. Only applicants
who participate in the prequalification process, and whom the PC determines are qualified to bid, will be
requested to bid. The PC plans to issue an invitation for bids ("IFB") in August 2012, after completion of
the bidder prequalification process.

Interested eligible applicants should register and obtain pre-qualification documents from The Privatization
Commission at the address below or by sending an email to info@pppc.mw copied to
vmnthambala@pppc.mw.

Applications for prequalification should be submitted in sealed envelopes, delivered to the address below by
16 July 2012, and be clearly marked "Application to Prequalify a Private Partner for a PPP
arrangement for the provision of international broadband connectivity to Malawi: Contract

Tech Group unit bags $47m worth of Iraq projects

(Issac John) / 20 May 2012


Construction Tech, a part of UAE-based business conglomerate Tech Group, has bagged two major project
deals in Iraq totaling over $47 million as the war ravaged country presses ahead with massive rebuilding and
infrastructure development programme.

The deals include a $45 million deal for the revamp of the Central Bank of Iraq and a $2.15 million
partnership with Royal Dutch Shell to support developing its main office in Burjisia, Basra, the company said
in a statement.

Construction Tech is one among several UAE-based construction giants that are very actively taking part in
Iraq’s rebuilding and oil projects worth tens of billions of dollars. Recently, Exxon Mobil, BP and Eni said they
would spend around $100 billion to upgrade three oil fields in southern Iraq. The huge investments would
help unleash Iraq’s massive oil reserves, whose development was stunted by years of sanctions under
Saddam Hussein’s regime and then continued strife after his downfall.

Iraq is currently in talks with international companies to build infrastructure projects valued at a total of
about $100 billion, according to Abdulla Al Bander, an adviser to the country’s investment commission. The
commission has already awarded infrastructure projects valued at a total of $32 billion since 2008, he said.

Iraq, which holds the world’s fifth-largest oil reserves, is seeking foreign investment to help rebuild an
economy and infrastructure damaged by years of conflict, sanctions and underinvestment. In March 2010,
the government approved plans to build one million apartments by 2014 for lower- and middle-income
families to help a housing shortage. More than half a dozen leading construction companies from the UAE
have already undertaken projects in Iraq.

Construction Tech said it is mandated to undertake extensive reconstruction of the exteriors of the Central
Bank of Iraq, elevator overhauling and updating of the apex bank’s IT systems. Under the agreement with
Shell, the company will supply and erect the main office building of the global oil major across an array of
construction-related works. The main office of Shell will be the base for the oil major’s operations in the
Majnoon oil field.

Ghaleb Kamel Jaber, vice-chairman and partner of Tech Group, said the winning of the contracts signified
the increasing presence of the UAE-based companies in the infrastructure development and maintenance
activities in Iraq.

“For Tech Group, these projects will help us further firm up our presence in Iraq across various construction
and redevelopment opportunities.”

Jaber signed the project contract with Iraqi authorities and the work on the project has already commenced
at the site. “Our expertise in construction related activities with seven specialised companies in the field
under our portfolio, we are poised to win more contracts in Iraq, with some of these upcoming projects
already under advanced stages of negotiations,” he added,

While Construction Tech will spearhead the Iraq Central Bank revamp project, other companies in the group
will support the renovation with their respective expertise. These companies include Elevators-Tech, MEP
Tech and Wood Tech.

“We consider winning these two contracts in Iraq within a short span of time ever since we made our
presence in that country a testimony to the capabilities of the Group as a whole and specifically an
endorsement to the expertise of Construction Tech. We are now poised to grow further in Iraq as we do
expect to win more deals in 2012 when pending contracts we have pitched for materialise,” said Jaber.

“We are now one of the major players in Iraq’s construction and infrastructure development activities with a
line-up of significant projects under our portfolio. We are also present in the oil sector now with significant
wins,” he said.

27 May 2012 | By Verity Ratcliffe

Wastewater contract will cover work in the Bausher area of Muscat Governorate

Oman’s Haya Water has awarded a RO26.7m ($70m) contract to Athens-based Consolidated Contractors
Company (CCC) to carry out a water reuse project in the Qurum and Ilam areas of Bausher in Muscat
Governorate.

The 30-month contract covers the construction of 40 kilometres of sewer pipes, 66km of lateral pipes and
10km of treated effluent irrigation channel. The project also includes the design and construction of 13 minor

Shanghai to build 45 office buildings in 5 yrs
Gao Changxin, Asia News Network (China Daily) | Tue, 05/15/2012

Shanghai plans to build 45 office buildings in its bustling financial district of Lujiazui in five years, in a bid to
accommodate clustering financial services companies.

By the end of April this year, there were 207 office buildings in Lujiazui in city's Pudong New Area, with a
construction area totaling more than 10 million square meters, according to figures from the Administrative
Committee of the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone.

The new plan, part of Shanghai's ambition to be a global financial hub by 2020, comes after office buildings
in Lujiazui were nearly full as financial institutions flocked to the area.

Ninety-four percent of Lujiazui's office floor was rented out in 2011.

By the end of 2016, Lujiazui is expected to be home to more than 900 financial service companies, up from
630 in 2011.




Jakarta: Govt bans construction of diesel power plants
The Jakarta Post | Mon, 05/14/2012

JAKARTA: The government will no longer allow the construction of diesel power plants in order to reduce fuel
subsidies that have contributed to an ever-widening state budget deficit, Coordinating Economic Minister
Hatta Rajasa has said.

 In the future Indonesia should focus on the construction of geothermal, hydro, gas or coal-fired power
plants to meet the surge in the electricity demand both from households and industry, Hatta said as reported
by Antara news agency.

State-owned electricity company PT PLN has recently focused on the construction of gas- and coal-fired
power plants to meet growing electricity needs.

The company still operates a number of diesel power plants with a capacity of between 700 and 800
Megawatts (MW).

PLN president director Nur Pamudji claimed the company had stopped the construction of diesel fuel-fired
power plants three years ago.

Kuwait to spend $6b on airport

Abdul Basit / 23 May 2012

DUBAI - The government of Kuwait has planned a $6 billion spending to expand it’s international airport to
handle 13 million passengers by 2016, a top official of civil aviation authority said on Tuesday.

The expansion plan will double the existing passenger capacity of the airport in the next four years.
Construction will begin this year on adding a terminal and renovating infrastructure to increase the capacity,
Kuwait Civil Aviation President Fawaz Abdul Aziz Al Farah told reporters on the sidelines of the Airport Show.

The airport was built to handle seven million travellers annually, but it reported 8.5 million passengers
handled last year. The figure may exceed nine million this year, Al Farah said. The airport expansion is part
of the oil-rich Gulf state’s $111 billion four-year development plan, which was revealed in February 2010 to
build a subway and rail network, expand the airport and construct power stations, hospitals, roads and a
port.

Other Gulf countries like the UAE and Qatar are building airports and expanding existing ones to
accommodate growth in travel.

Al Farah mentioned that the capacity of the airport may be expanded to 25 million passengers by 2025 and
50 million people by 2035.

On October 3, 2011, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation announced that a new Foster plus Partners-
designed terminal will begin construction in 2012 and will increase the annual passenger handling amount to
13 million passengers in its first phase with the option of expanding to 25 million passengers.

It is estimated that $3 billion will be spent on the development plan to expand the passenger terminal, he
said, adding that the other $3 billion will be spent on other projects, including widening the runways, a new
control tower and a new cargo town.

Iraq to spend $9.8bn on housing and road schemes

23 May 2012, By Andrew Roscoe

Iraq’s Construction and Housing Ministry is expecting to spend $9.8bn on building housing and roads
throughout the country until 2016.

Speaking at Arabian World Construction Summit (AWCS), Muhammed al-Darraji, Iraq’s Construction and
Housing Minister, said that the ministry was expecting to spend $5.8bn on building new roads and bridges
and $4bn on building new housing units until 2016.

Iraq needs to build 7,000-kilometres of new road and 500 new bridges, Al-Darraji told the summit. Iraq
currently has 53,247km of roads and 1,200 bridges. In addition to the requirement for new roads, Al-Darraji
said that about 30 per cent of the existing network requires maintenance.

The Construction and Housing Ministry plans to spend $4bn on social and low-cost housing schemes in the
next three years to reduce the current shortfall, which is estimated to be more than 2.5 million homes.

The ministry, which currently has 61 housing projects under construction, is planning to spend $2bn on
starting 10 new social housing projects, containing about 600 units each, every year until 2016. The ministry
also expects to spend $2bn on building about 50,000 low cost houses.

Recycled building wastes to be used in Etihad Rail work
Recycled aggregates from construction and demolition wastes will go towards the development of the Etihad
Railway Network in Abu Dhabi, announced the Centre for Waste Management (CWM).

The venture will take place under a strategic agreement between the CWM and contractor Thiess Services
Middle East (TSME) to manage a recycling facility for construction and demolition wastes.

TSME will supply at least 750,000 tonnes of recycled aggregates to Al Jaber Group for the completion of the
railway project’s first phase. The contract will save 5 million kilometres in the transportation of construction
materials by truck, reducing the project’s financial and environmental costs.

“The use of recycled aggregates brings important technical, environmental and economic benefits to our
customers and to Abu Dhabi,” said TSME general manager Tim Harwood.

“This is the first order for the Etihad Rail project but we are receiving very positive feedback about our
recycled product from many contractors in the region and we expect further significant orders in the near
term.”

Production at the Al Dhafra recycling facility, the first of its kind in the Middle East, was temporarily ceased
last year due to insufficient sale orders.

Renewed interest in using recycled material to construct major infrastructure projects, including highways
and ports, has led the CWM to anticipate the restart of production in the near future.

The facility processes 98 per cent of inflowing raw construction and demolition waste (by weight) into high-
quality recycled aggregates, at a rate of up to 600 tonnes per hour.

“Our requirements for recycled aggregates are as stringent as those for any other source of material,” said
Najib Arnous, contracting director of Al Jaber Transport and General Contracting. “We are looking for very
high quality, technical performance and environmental benefits. Our use of Thiess’ recycled aggregates over
the last two years has demonstrated the benefits to us and we are pleased to be leading the way in this
important area of Abu Dhabi’s sustainable development.”

The first sections of the Etihad Railway Network, where the recycled aggregates will be used, are being
constructed between Shah and Ruwais. Phase I of the 1,200km railway is slated for completion in 2014

SEC. Construction of the plant and associated facilities is scheduled to begin no later than 31 March 2013
with a projected commercial operation date of 1 April 2017.

The project company will sell its entire electricity output to SEC under a 25-year power purchase agreement.
SEC will be responsible for dispatching power from the project. SEC will supply HFO to the project company,
having sourced the fuel from Saudi Aramco under a separate agreement.

The IPP will use supercritical steam generators and is to be built at a site around 150 kilometres from Jeddah
in Saudi Arabia’s Western province (MEED 11:4:12). Besides the power plant, the developer will also
construct seawater intake and outfall structures, fuel facilities including storage and disposal facilities.

SEC has asked developers to submit letters of intention to bid by 13 June, ahead of a site visit on 26 June
and a bidders’ conference on 27 June. Developers have until 6 October to respond to the request for
proposals (RFP) and SEC will shortlist bidders by 9 January 2013. According to SEC’s schedule, the project is
expected to reach financial close by 31 March 2013.

The US’ Citigroup is advising SEC on the project, which is the state-run power company’s fourth in its IPP
programme. Once SEC has tendered contracts for the new IPP at Rabigh, it will tender another project, also
with a capacity of 1,700MW, at Bi’r Ad Dibba on Saudi Arabia’s western coast between Jeddah and Jizan. The
Bi’r Ad Dibba IPP will be tendered in 2013 to meet an operational date of 2018.

Three new projects in Dubai approved

(WAM) / 13 May 2012

Three prestigious projects were approved on Sunday by Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and
Ruler of Dubai His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Director General of Dubai
Municipality Eng Hussain Nassir Lootah announced at a press conference at the Municipality.

The biggest of the three is Dubai Safari Project, in Al Warqa 5, Aweer Road, on an area of 400 hectares
includes Dubai Safari, Butterfly Park, golf courses, entertainment and recreational areas, Lootah said.

Dubai Safari facility that covers 60 hectares of the total area is aimed at establishing the best center for

The project consists of a comprehensive wharfage of 3 km in length between the Deira Corniche and Palm
Deira, in front of Hayatt Regency Hotel. The wharfage will be divided into 30 loading/unloading areas, which
will allow around 400 dhows of different sizes to berth at the same time.The project provides a
loading/unloading area of 90,000 m2, which is more than half the loading/unloading area existing currently
in Dubai Creek; and facilitates loading/unloading of cargo of more than 1.7 million tons per year.

The wharfage was designed with a depth of 7 meters below the low water level and with all necessary
anchorage elements; this will allow Dubai Creek to receive and anchor bigger dhows which couldn’t enter
before. This project includes new quay structures and associated dredging and reclamation, including the
supporting services and infrastructure such as entry and exit reporting wharves, administrative and control
buildings, sailor’s facilities and re-fuelling wharf.

All safety precautions have been followed according to international standards through providing an
integrated fire fighting network as well as security services, police, rescue and civil defense facilities and
berths. The project works include providing all major services including internal roads, water, electricity,
telecommunication, and sewage networks. Also, a lighting network will be provided for the whole wharfage
area which will facilitate cargo handling work during the evening hours.

Construction of the project will require the excavation and dredging of 390,000 m3 of sand from the seabed
adjacent to the wharf site, and this amount will be re-used for the reclamation works of the wharfage.
According to the project plan, construction works will commence at the beginning of June 2012, with the
completion and operation of Phase 1 (60% of the wharf) after 12 months, and the second phase will be
completed by end of year 2013.

Head of Coastal Engineering Unit Eng. Ibrahim Mohammed Ibrahim Ali Juma explained the project of
Completion of Business Bay Canal and its Connection to the Sea.

Ibrahim said that the aim of this project is to revive Business Bay Canal as a part of an integrated marine
system which will improve the environmental state of the canal, as well as the upper part of the creek. Also,
this project will enhance the economical state of the area adjacent to canal by transformation into an
attractive business waterfront. It will also provide a chance to use the Business Bay Canal for navigation. It
will create a unique water body suitable for leisure navigation purposes

A complete hydrodynamic study has been done by Dubai Municipality to ensure proper water circulation in
both Business Bay Canal and the inner part of Dubai Creek, as well as, the efficiency of the near future
inclusion of Meydan canal in the overall system.

The project consists of two phases:

Phase 1: involves the connection of Business Bay Canal with sea through a pipeline system connecting the
sea to the side of canal adjacent to Sheikh Zayed Road.

The pipeline system of an overall length of about 3 km will be realized by adopting “Micro-Tunneling”
technique, which will allow the pumping process to proceed without impacting any existing utilities or
services as well as not requiring any diversions to be done to roads or services lines.

Also, the water intake will be done using the “Pipeline Intake” technique, which does not require the
construction of any breakwaters, thus preventing any harm to the coastal and marine environment.

Phase 2: Completion of the canal waterway through connecting the existing lagoons.

This phase consists of carrying out the dredging works for the remaining parts of the canal, estimated by an
amount of 750,000 m3. In addition, the canal quay wall of a length of 1.2 km will be completed.

The duration of design works will be 7 months and the implementation works will be 18 months

NPCC eyes Dh5b in revenues

Haseeb Haider / 13 May 2012

Abu Dhabi’s National Petroleum Construction Company, or NPCC, is eyeing Dh5 billion in revenues in the
year against the Dh4.2 billion racked up in 2011, as the capital is unloading a pipeline of hydrocarbon
projects valued at more than $8 billion, its chief executive officer Aqeel Abdullah Al Madhi said.

“We’re expecting billions of dollars in value projects in the next 12 months in Abu Dhabi,” Al Madhi told
reporters on the sidelines of NPCC’s annual HSE and Business Excellence ceremony, in which high-
performing officials were awarded for their valuable services.

Most of these new projects will be offered to be built by Zadco and the Abu Dhabi Marine Operating
Company, or Adma-Opco, which are planning to develop new oil production facilities at Upper Zakum and
Umme Lulu, he said. “So, we are studying as how we can tackle a number of projects and how to strengthen
our facilities and capacities in order to be able to get them.”

Zadco, which is building its platforms and other facilities at the newly-developed man-made islands, is
expected to finalise the awarding of a tender very soon, known as EPC-1, estimated to have a value as high
as $1 billion.

EPC-2, which has an even bigger tender in value, will be awarded towards the end of the year, he said.

Adma-Opco is also in the process to launch several projects for the development of Umme Lulu and Sarb in
several mega packages.

“There are Sarb 1, 2 and 3 projects along with Umme Lulu,” Al Madhi said. The petroleum construction firm
— which is part of General Holding Corporation, the industrial arm of Abu Dhabi — is making inroads into
Oman, where it is bidding for a storage tanks project, estimated to have a value of $200 million.

Elsewhere in India, Al Madhi said the construction firm was completing and bidding for several smaller
projects.

“There’s a huge pipeline of hydrocarbon projects in the next ten years,” the chief executive said. NPCC was
facing tough competition, as preference was being given to local firms offering a bid of not lower than $110
million, he said. The construction company’s board of directors has approved the construction of a jack-up
barge at NPCC’s facilities in Musaffah valued at $110 million, a replica of the one already built this year.

The company’s barge is capable of lifting a single structure weighing over 2,600 metric tonnes and laying
submarine pipelines up to 60 inches in diametre. NPCC already has 14 existing barges with two more to be
added soon.

Ranked second among the top 25 EPC contractors in the Middle East oil and gas industry, NPCC is devising
its five-year business plan, Al Madhi said.

“We have set an ambitious expansion plan in terms of volume, growth, and geographical reach, scouting for
opportunities in South East Asia, Caspian Sea and West Africa,” Al Madhi said at the ceremony.

“We are upgrading our capabilities through an investment of $500 million. This covers upgrading offshore
marine fleet, increasing yards’ capacity, augmenting equipment facilities and in addition expanding our
engineering capabilities.”

Work will include building service roads and car parks

Kuwait’s Central Tenders Committee (CTC) has approved the award of contracts worth a total of KD129.1m
($462.8m) for infrastructure packages at Kuwait University’s Sabah al-Salem campus.

CTC approval is the final stage before a formal contract award is made.

The latest CTC approval was for the award of a KD98m ($351m) contract to the local Copri Construction
Enterprises for infrastructure packages A5 and B5 at Kuwait University’s new campus.

The infrastructure work will include the construction of service roads, secondary substations and car parks.
Eight groups submitted bids for the infrastructure packages in December 2011. Copri’s KD98m bid was 1.2
per cent lower than the KD99.2m price submitted by the second-lowest bidder, the local Mohammed
Abdulmoshin al-Kharafi & Sons Company.

The CTC also recently approved the award of a KD31.1m contract to the local Ahmadiah Trading &
Contracting Company for infrastructure package B6 at the new campus. The B6 infrastructure package will
involve upper floor car parking works, public shelters and various buildings in the Eastern part of the
university development.

The new Sabah al-Salem university campus will be located at Shadadiyah, which is 20 kilometres west of
Kuwait City. When completed, the campus will comprise more than 25 faculty buildings. It will include a 600-
bed hospital, car parks with space for more than 32,000 vehicles, dormitories, sports facilities and
auditoriums.

In October 2011, Kuwait’s CTC approved the award of two construction contracts worth a total of $1.2bn to
build faculty buildings at the new Sabah al-Salem university campus.

Abu Dhabi finalising on MTB contractors deal

Haseeb Haider / 7 May 2012

Abu Dhabi has picked a consortium of construction firms comprising CCC, TAV and Arabtec, as a preferred
bidder to build its multi-billion dollar Midfield Terminal Building, or MTB, at Abu Dhabi International Airport.

The Abu Dhabi Airports Company, or Adac, confirmed it is “currently in discussions to finalise all details of
the contract” before officially announcing the winning contractor in June.

“With this announcement the MTB is on-track to become the capital’s aviation gateway in 2017,” chairman
Khalifa Al Mazrouei said.

The 700,000sqm terminal building is one of the key strategic infrastructure projects to be undertaken in Abu
Dhabi, and will initially handle 30 million passengers per year. It is set to become the future home of Etihad
Airways, the national airline of the UAE.

The expansion and redevelopment of Abu Dhabi International Airport is aimed at delivering world-class
aviation infrastructure to support the emirate’s long-term economic and tourism strategies that will underpin
Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030 in building a vibrant and diversified economy.

Abu Dhabi is projecting a surge in tourism from 1.8 million visitors in 2010 to 2.7 million by 2013, and to 7.5
million by 2030.

“Adac will ensure that the aviation infrastructure in the emirate to support this opportunity,” Al Mazrouei

Abu Dhabi International Airport is one of the fastest-growing hubs in the world. Its growth rate of 19.7 per
cent over the last five years has been spurred by the rapid growth of its hub airline, Etihad, and the
increasing attraction of Abu Dhabi as a destination for business and leisure.

In 2009, the airport’s Terminal 3 was commissioned, fully-dedicated to Etihad Airways.

In line with Etihad’s expansion plans and Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030, growth over the next 20 years
is forecasted to be robust, and the new terminal will accommodate the projected traffic demand of 47 million
passengers in 2030. The new terminal will include over 200 check-in counters and will be capable of
handling over 8,000 passengers per hour. The baggage system is designed for almost 20,000 bags per hour
and will have over 22km of conveyors and 10 reclaim carousels.

Security screening lanes for passengers will total 136 with a further 25 for staff. The terminal will have
18,000sqm of duty-free shopping and almost 10,000sqm of international restaurants. Passenger facilities will
also include over 27,500sqm of 23 hospitality lounges, and a heritage museum.

Taqa’s Netherlands project gets approval
Haseeb Haider / 3 May 2012

Abu Dhabi National Energy Company or Taqa has received approval from the Dutch Council of State for the
development of the €800 million, Bergermeer Gas Storage facility, the largest in the Europe.

Taqa and its project partner EBN can commence construction of the gas storage.

With a working volume of 4.1 billion cubic metres i.e. the average annual gas consumption of 2.5 million
households in the Netherlands. The decision of the Council of State is the final stage of a transparent and
meticulous process in which environmental concerns have been of the absolute highest priority.

“Every possible measure to implement the project in a safe and responsible way and to minimise any
disturbance,” Taqa said. Among others, agreements have been reached concerning the efficient handling of
any property damage related to the project, compensation measures for nature and the restriction of noise
during construction.

Ten of the eleven competent authorities had earlier approved the Bergermeer Gas Storage project and the
national parliament has also approved the project. Taqa will shortly commence preparatory work. Work on
the well site will start after the meadow birds breeding season in July.

Bergermeer Gas Storage will double the capacity in the Netherlands for seasonal storage.



Concourse 3 well on track, set to become operational by Q1

Abdul Basit / 2 May 2012

DUBAI - The construction of Concourse 3 at the Dubai International Airport, the world’s first purpose-built
A380 facility, is on track and will be operational in the first quarter of next year, Dubai Airports chief
executive officer Paul Griffiths said.

As part of the expansion plan, work to expand Terminal 2 to almost double its existing capacity continues
apace, with construction well underway on the new check-in facilities. Design work for the new Concourse 4,
which will be dedicated to more than 110 international airlines, is also underway.

“Concourse 3 will be opened to the public in the first quarter of 2013 once Dubai Airports is completely
satisfied that it has passed all operational and service readiness tests with flying colours,” Griffiths told
journalists at a Press briefing held at the Arabian Travel Market.

“We will not compromise on service,” he stressed.

Featuring 20 contact gates and 13 remote stands, all capable of accommodating Airbus A380 aircraft,
Concourse 3 will boost Dubai International’s capacity to 75 million passengers per year. The new building will
have entire floors dedicated to business and first class passengers, allowing them to board directly from the
lounge facilities.

As the Concourse 3 project nears its completion, work has already begun on phase one of the S$7.8 billion
Strategic Plan 2020 which will boost Dubai International’s annual capacity to 90 million passengers by 2018
through several airport and airspace expansion projects.

“Over the next few weeks, our preparatory work will move into high gear. We learned a lot from our
experience with Terminal 3,” said Griffiths.

“We learned that the big-bang theory is not the best approach when it comes to opening an airport… soft
launches following rigorous testing and operational trials is the only way to go.”

Concourse 3, which will cater solely for Emirates Airline flights, will have 11 levels. By the end of April, key
elements of the facility, including the baggage handling system and train system linking Terminal 3 to the
new concourse were in place and are due to be handed over to Dubai Airports for trials in the coming weeks.

Most of the structural work on Concourse 3 is complete, with work now predominately focused on the
activation of airport systems and completion of the internal infrastructure.

Passenger traffic at Dubai International, the world’s fourth busiest hub for international passengers and
freight, continued its double-digit growth for the third consecutive month in March, according to Dubai
Airports.

Passenger traffic in March reached 4.85 million, an increase of 15.4 per cent compared to 4.2 million during
the corresponding month in 2011. March is the third consecutive month for Dubai International with
passenger numbers exceeding the 4.5 million mark, propelling traffic in the first quarter to 14.26 million, a
surge of 16.1 per cent over the same period last year.




Emaar plans new Dubai projects as real estate outlook improves

2 May 2012| By Colin Foreman

Local developer is planning new schemes at its Downtown and Greens developments

Local real estate developer Emaar properties is planning to start work on two projects at its Downtown Dubai
and Greens developments in Dubai.

The largest scheme is at Downtown Dubai. Known as Westside, the scheme involves building about 14
residential blocks with a built-up area of about 1.2 million square metres across the artificial lake from the
world’s tallest tower the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall. It will also have a promenade with shops and food and
beverage outlets looking out to the 828 metre-tall tower.

UK-based Atkins and South Africa’s Mirage Mille are the consultants working on the scheme. Selected
contractors have been approached to work on the scheme and advise on value engineering and making the
development’s design easier to build.

The scheme will sit alongside Emaar’s proposed cultural district that was announced in March. It will sit on
an island next to Westside and will contain a modern art museum, an opera house and other cultural
facilities. The Dubai Modern Art Museum and Opera House District will also contain two hotels, studios and
leisure facilities.

At the Greens, Emaar has approached contractors to bid by 8 May for a contract to build residential blocks
on plots 30 and 31. The Greens is a mid-rise residential district along Sheikh Zayed road.

The outlook for real estate in Dubai has improved this year, with consultants expecting prices for good
quality properties in central locations to rise. To capitalise on the renewed confidence in the market, Emaar
says it is developing a series of new projects in Dubai.

“As part of Emaar’s growth strategy, the company has announced plans to launch new projects in Dubai this
year including the Dubai Modern Art Museum and Opera House District in Downtown Dubai,” says an Emaar
spokesman. “There are various other projects which are in the planning and conceptual stage. We will
announce them once the details are finalised.”

HCC's Swiss arm Steiner to make India entry
In May 2010, HCC took a 66% equity stake in building construction company Karl Steiner AG

Press Trust of India / Apr 29, 2012

Hindustan Construction Company's (HCC) Swiss subsidiary Steiner AG is likely to make a foray into the
Indian market this year.

"Steiner has established itself as the largest building construction company in Switzerland. Now Steiner will
also migrate to India during the fiscal," HCC Chairman and Managing Director Ajit Gulabchand said.

In May 2010, HCC made its first international acquisition by taking a controlling stake (66% equity stake) in
Switzerland-based   building         construction       company       Karl       Steiner    AG       (KSAG).

KSAG specialises in turnkey development of buildings and refurbishments and offers services in all facets of
real estate construction.

"The acquisition of Steiner has helped HCC to establish its presence in the Swiss market. We are hopeful that
in the next two years, it (Steiner) will be able to establish itself in the Indian market as well," he said.

KSAG has undertaken several projects, including the headquarters of Nestle, Google, World Economic
Forum,  Terminal  T3   of   Geneva    airport,  and   several   hotels and    residential buildings.

"There is tremendous scope for a company like Steiner to establish its base in India given the huge
opportunity of refurbishment of old and heritage structures here. We are waiting for the right project to
come     our    way,"    said    another     official, who     did   not    wish     to    be    named.

For the last fiscal (FY12), Steiner registered a revenue of Rs 3,996 crore and a net profit of Rs 15.8 crore.
The     closing      cash     balance     of    the    company      was     around     Rs      644     crore.

"During the last year, Steiner was able to notch up an order backlog of almost USD 2 billion. When we took
over the company two years ago, its order backlog was hardly about USD 500-600 million. We have been
able     to      turn     it    profitable     in     the     Swiss      market,"    Gulabchand       said.

HCC group's turnover last year was Rs 8,157.6 crore of which Steiner AG accounted for nearly half at Rs
3,996 crore.

Patna's own 'Marine Drive' project set to take off
PATNA: Eight construction companies, including Gammon, Nagarjun and Reliance, have shown keenness to
construct the proposed 40-km driveway along the banks of the Ganga river in Patna modelled on Mumbai's
Marine Drive, officials said Sunday.

Eight companies have submitted quotations for the Rs.2,234.46 crore project, said an official of the Bihar
State Road Development Corporation Ltd.

Bihar road construction minister Nand Kishore Yadav told IANS here that the government would select the
company by June.

"We hope to start construction work by next year and the project would be completed by 2016," he said.

Last year, the union finance ministry had cleared the project.

In the first phase, the driveway will connect Digha and Didarganj, a stretch of 21 km, and in the second

phase, it will go to Fatuha, a distance of 18 km. About seven km of the road will run on an elevated
platform.

Delayed national highway projects under review
NEW DELHI: At least 87 NH projects are running behind schedule, and in some cases the delay is more than
seven years. Unhappy with the tardy progress of highway construction, the highways ministry has started a
state-wise review of progress - starting with Uttar Pradesh - to expedite the unfinished task that has led to
huge time overrun and cost escalation.

Sources said that strict instructions have been issued to all government officials and private contractors to
complete the delayed projects within the revised deadline. A review of all the 11 NH projects in UP were
discussed   at    a     meeting,     chaired  by     highways    minister    C     P   Joshi,   on    Friday.

Most of these projects are delayed beyond three years. Agra-Sikohabad (50.83km) is the worst affected
stretch since it is running 87 months behind schedule. "The contractors cited financial liquidity, non-
availability of land and environment clearances as the major hurdles in completing the delayed projects. We
have asked them to meet the deadline, and all officials have been directed to push for clearances and land
acquisition," said a senior ministry official.

He added that the minister will soon hold a review meeting of the other states, where NH work has been
delayed by years. "We started with UP, which has the largest network of NHs. While only a few of the
delayed projects across the country are on build-operate-transfer (BOT-toll) mode, and most are cash
contract ventures," said a ministry official.

Recently, the parliamentary standing committee on road transport and highways had pulled up the ministry
for failing to complete a single programme like the ambitious Golden Quadrilateral network, despite
undertaking new ventures and initiatives.

The government has announced to meet the target of constructing 20 km highways per day before the 2014
parliamentary polls.


Road project hits toll-gate bump
Naresh Chandra Pattanayak, TNN May 20, 2012

KEONJHAR: At a time when the government is encouraging cost-effective PPP projects, the first such road in
the state is yet to start operations due to the state government's indecision. The 28-km Palaspanga-
Bamebari road was completed almost a year back, but it is yet to be opened for public use as the state
government hasn't been able to fix the amount of toll tax to be collected from vehicles on the road.

Sources said construction of the road connecting Palsapanga of Sadar block to the mineral-rich Bamebari
area of Joda block was taken up on PPP mode in 2006. The Keonjhar Infrastructure Development Company
(KIDCO) was constituted for this purpose with the support of five local industry houses. KIDCO signed a MoU
with the state government for a period of 15 years. So far the company has spent about Rs100 crore. In
addition to the share of money deposited by the companies, KIDCO had taken a loan of Rs 58 crore from SBI
with a condition to repay it in eight years. They had planned to realize the money from toll tax.

Dubai deal on underwater hotels and floating cities

Issac John / 3 May 2012

Dubai is all set to open newer horizons in the tourism and hospitality sector with a novel initiative to develop
underwater hotels.




                       An artist’s impression of the Water Discus Hotel concept.

Drydocks World, the shipbuilding arm of Dubai World, said on Wednesday it has signed a deal with Big
Invest Consult, a Swiss company, to develop underwater hotels and floating cities.

The deal was inked at the Annual Investment Meeting held at the Dubai International Convention Centre.
“The project is based on a unique concept that aims to provide the ultimate leisure experience and opens
new horizons in tourism and housing in coastal areas, adding commercial value, while aiming to preserve the
marine ecosystem,” Drydocks World said in a statement.

The hotel, featuring a discus-shaped residential underwater building connected to another discus above
water, will be funded by BIG Invest. The project envisages “an ultimate leisure facility with a structure that
is partly above water and the rest underneath — a residential Underwater Discus with an Above Water
Discus”, the company said.

BIG Invest is acting as a representative of the Deep Ocean Technology, the Polish owner behind the
technology and concept of Water Discus Hotel.

According to the deal, Drydocks and Maritime World are appointed the exclusive main contractor for the
construction of the new concept hotels and cities floating in the Middle East. The firm said two
developments with five hotels attached to them are planned in the Middle East. The Swiss firm is eyeing the
coast of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

“This project has seven different types of designs and (each will cost in) the range of around $50 million to
$120 million. The amount varies based on the design. The discussions are to build these around the world,
not just the UAE,” said Khamis Juma Buamim, chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World.

        “The Water Discus Hotel project opens many new fields of development for hotel and tourism sector,
        housing and city sector in the coastal off-shore areas, as well as new opportunities for ecology
        support by creation of new underwater ecosystems and activities on underwater world protection.
        We would like to create here in the UAE the international environmental programme and centre of
        the Underwater World Protection — with Water Discus Hotel as a laboratory tool for oceans and seas
        environment protection and research,” said Bogdan Gutkowski, president.

Pick-up in project activity predicted across the Gulf


16 May 2012, By Ed James

There are plenty of signs to indicate that the GCC’s long-term prospects outweigh the short-term slump in
contract awards

The GCC projects market has gone through an unprecedented period of growth over the past decade.
Buoyed by rising oil prices, a growing population and booming economies, the region has seen more than
$700bn-worth of contracts awarded across all sectors since 2003. The result has been a radical
transformation of the region. City skylines have risen almost overnight, vast petrochemical complexes in the
desert now produce a range of new plastics and coastlines are crammed with five-star hotels.

The uprisings across the Middle East look set to drive project investment up in the medium term

The investment in ambitious projects has had an impact on the region’s economic and social fabric. The Gulf
region is now a financial, leisure and industrial hub of growing international importance. It has always been
relevant politically and is now also viewed by other emerging markets as a model for economic development.

The reason for the massive growth in projects activity is no secret; a sharp rise in oil prices has been at its
heart. In 2003, the price of crude averaged just $23 a barrel. Today, it is well over $100 a barrel and shows
no sign of coming down soon. The economic impact this has had on government revenues has been
staggering. In 2003, the combined current account surplus of the six GCC states was $50bn; in 2011, it was
$279bn, a more than fivefold increase. Oil revenues have allowed governments to spend billions of dollars on
upgrading their physical and social infrastructure.

Growth in the projects market has not only been about increased government expenditure. Dubai’s 2002
decision to open up ownership in its real estate sector to non-GCC nationals acted as a catalyst for a private
sector-led real estate boom that was the largest driver of the projects market until late 2008. While the
Dubai real estate crash has taken some of the steam out of the market, construction is still a strong sector
that saw close to $50bn-worth of contracts awarded in 2011.

It is not surprising that growth in demand for construction and building materials has come with the
substantial increase in activity. The need for cement, aluminium products, reinforcement bars, glass and
steel has soared over the past five years and existing producers have at times struggled to keep up with
demand.

The question everybody in the projects industry is asking today is whether the market can attain the same
levels of activity. This is particularly pertinent given its performance in 2011, when just $129bn-worth of
contracts were awarded in the GCC. It was by far the worst year for the market since 2005, primarily as a
result of the drop in activity in Abu Dhabi and the continuing fallout from Dubai’s credit crisis. As the market
has contracted from its 2009 high of $169bn, fears of an oversupply in construction materials and
contracting capacity in general have grown.

Overcapacity problems




                                                     138
                                                                            Global Project Opportunities: June, 2012

Prices have dropped in the wake of the decrease in project activity, and compounded by an increase in
supply of materials as new local manufacturing facilities have come on stream to serve the boom. For
example, more than a dozen cement production plants have been built over the past 10 years, with an
overall production capacity exceeding 15 million tonnes a year. New capacity across other building materials
is also coming online just as demand is at risk of falling away.

The problem is mirrored within the contracting community. Over the past half-decade, dozens of new
contractors have entered the region to take advantage of the boom. The potential result of these combined
factors will be an ever-increasing band of contractors and suppliers chasing an ever-decreasing number of
projects.

The question of whether the market can return to pre-2009 levels is therefore critical to the fortunes of
many firms. The good news is there are plenty of signs that indicate a long-term return to health for the
market.

Firstly, it is important to note that with the exception of off-plan property sales, the factors that have driven
project market growth to this point remain. The price of oil is still well above $100 a barrel and looks set to
stay there for the foreseeable future. The US’ Energy Information Administration forecasts that world
marketed energy consumption will rise from 495 quadrillion BTUs in 2007 to 739 quadrillion BTUs by 2035.
While not all of this increase in energy demand will be met by oil, demand for crude is still expected to
increase substantially over the next two decades and this will push prices upwards.

There are no signs that either population or economic growth will fall away. The US-based Population
Reference Bureau forecasts that the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region’s population will rise to more
than 600 million by 2030, from about 350 million today. Growth is important because it is the main driver
behind investment in utilities, such as power, desalination and wastewater, as well as social infrastructure,
such as housing, healthcare and schools. Equally critical is the fact that when faced with increased demand
in these sectors, governments have little choice but to make investments.

Continued high oil prices and expanding populations bode well for economic growth. The Washington-
headquartered IMF predicts that gross domestic product (GDP) growth rates in the GCC will continue to
hover around 5 per cent a year, and 4-6 per cent in the wider Mena region. It forecasts that by 2016, Mena
GDP will be $3.6 trillion, compared with $2.4 trillion in 2010.

These factors mean there is no reason the region’s projects market cannot bounce back from its 2011 low.
This is especially true given the paradoxical impact of the political unrest that began in Tunisia in December
2010. Rather than deter project investment, the uprisings across the Middle East look set to drive up
spending in the medium term. The direct result of the upheaval has been extra-budgetary investment
among the GCC states of more than $100bn, much of which will go towards social infrastructure, such as
schools and, especially, social housing.

On a market-by-market level, there are localised reasons to be optimistic. Abu Dhabi’s failure to move ahead
with its project plans last year conversely means that many of its schemes should proceed throughout the
course of 2012 instead. The government announced in February that it plans to resume its projects
programme. This has provided the market with some optimism that the emirate will soon return to better
times.

In neighbouring Dubai, there are also indications of a pick-up in activity. The award of the $875m Concourse
4 project at Dubai International airport, announcements about the new $515m Habtoor Palace scheme and a
major new cultural district next to Burj Khalifa, along with the finalisation of financing for the Al-Sufouh tram
have all raised hopes that life is returning to a market that has been moribund since 2008.

The prospect of a return to progress in the UAE comes at the same time as a decrease in the number of
cancelled construction projects region-wide. In 2010, 229 projects due to be awarded were cancelled; this
number fell to 137 in 2011. It is down to 109 this year and is set to drop to about 30 in 2013 as developers
commit to more commercially viable schemes.

                                                      139
                                                                              Global Project Opportunities: June, 2012

Saudi Arabia’s potential

Whatever happens in the UAE, it is likely to pale in comparison to the spate of future activity in Saudi Arabia
and Qatar. The latter has more than $100bn-worth of infrastructure projects in the pipeline after winning the
right to host the 2022 Fifa World Cup. Doha has to work under a very tight timeframe, which will ensure a
large number of megaprojects, such as the stadiums, rail and metro schemes, are developed in under a
decade.

Even more work is planned in Saudi Arabia. In 2011, Riyadh awarded close to $70bn in signed contracts,
more than all the other GCC states combined. This is not surprising given that the kingdom has the region’s
largest economy and population, but it is evidence that the country is finally living up to its potential after
under-achieving until 2009. With the government committed to increasing expenditure as part of its ninth
development plan and the additional spending announcements following the region’s unrest, the kingdom’s
projects market can only grow in the short to medium term.

Project professionals can be relatively optimistic about the Gulf’s potential. MEED’s research division MEED
Insight forecasts that the GCC projects market will award $135bn-140bn-worth of contracts in 2012 and
potentially $150bn in 2013, based on the current pipeline of planned and tendered projects. And while it is
true that increased competition will have an impact, most contractors and suppliers in the market can be
confident of a pick-up in activity.




Airports lead for transport construction awards

Governments continue to invest in infrastructure to support economic growth

Clients in the six GCC countries have awarded $5.3bn of transport construction contracts so far this year as
governments continue to invest in ports, airports, roads and railways that will help drive future economic
growth.

Airports have been the most active sub sector for contract awards with just over $2bn of contract awards so
far this year. This is 37per cent of the total transport construction awards made.

The largest award was made in February when the UAE’s Alec won the estimated $850m contract to build
concourse 4 at Dubai International airport. This contract was just slightly larger than the $765m deal
secured by a consortium of Turkey’s TAV, the UAE/Australian Al-Habtoor Leighton Group, and the local Al-
Rahji Group for the construction of maintenance hangars at Jeddah airport in Saudi Arabia.

Airports will also generate new awards during the rest of the year. Abu Dhabi Airports Company is preparing
to award the estimated $2.9bn contract to build the midfield terminal building at Abu Dhabi International
airport in June. It is also tendering contracts for airside facilities that will support the new terminal. Kuwait is
also planning to tender a low cost passenger terminal and another large passenger terminal at Kuwait
International airport, although these two contracts may not be awarded this year.

The second most active sub sector is rail, with $1.6bn of awards, which is about 30 per cent of the total
transport construction contract awards made this year. The largest contract award was made in Oman with
the local Galfar Engineering & Construction Company winning a $361m contract to build the first section of
the Batinah Expressway. The second largest deal was secured by South Korea’s Samsung C&T for roads
works at the Lusail development in Qatar.

Although there were just two major awards, ports accounted for 23 per cent of the transport construction
awards. The largest deal was awarded to a joint venture of the Qatar/Belgium Middle East Dredging
Company and China Harbour Engineering Company for dredging work at the New Doha Port Project at
Mesaieed in Qatar. The only other port construction contract was awarded the Geneva registered Archirodon

                                                       140
                                                                           Global Project Opportunities: June, 2012

Construction for $41m expansion of terminal 2 at Dubai’s Jebel Ali port. More port contracts are expected.
Dubai has received bids for terminal 3 at Jebel Ali port and contractors have submitted bids for a contract to
expand Dammam port in Saudi Arabia Eastern Province.

Rail has been the least active subsector accounting for just 8 per cent of the total transport construction
awards. The only award was made to Saudi Arabia’s Al-Rashid Trading & Contracting Company for the
contract to build five passenger stations for the mineral railway in Saudi Arabia.

Rail is expected to be much more active for contract awards in the future, although it is unlikely that any
major awards will be made by the end of this year. The most imminent schemes are in Qatar, Saudi Arabia
and the UAE, with tendering under way for construction work on Doha metro, Riyadh is preparing to
prequalify firms for its metro, and the UAE is preparing to tender the second phase of its Etihad rail network.




GCC construction market slumps in first quarter

17 April 2012, By Andrew Roscoe




The value of construction and infrastructure contract awards down 53 per cent year-on-year

The value of construction contract awards in the GCC slumped 53 per cent in the first quarter of 2012
compared to 2011 as activity slowed dramatically in Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

There were $11.2bn-worth of construction and infrastructure contracts awarded in the first quarter of the
year, compared with $23.6bn awarded for the same period in 2011. The value of contract awards for the
first quarter of 2012 is also a 36 per cent drop on the $17.6bn of deals awarded in the previous quarter.

Saudi Arabia was the GCC’s biggest construction market for the first quarter of 2012, with $4bn-worth of
deals awarded. The value of construction contracts awarded in the kingdom was more than 32 per cent
higher than the $2.6bn-worth of construction deals finalised in the UAE and Qatar, the joint second largest
markets.

                                                                          Global Project Opportunities: June, 2012

The value of contracts awarded in Kuwait and Oman was almost identical, with $767m-worth of deals
awarded in Kuwait and $706m of construction contracts awarded in Oman. Bahrain’s construction market
recorded the lowest value of construction awards for the first quarter of the year, with $550m worth of deals
finalised.

The majority of the construction deals awarded in Saudi Arabia were in the residential sector, with more
than $1.3bn-worth of contracts awarded as the government and private developers seek to build homes for
the kingdom’s rapidly growing population. The largest residential contract award was the $400m deal signed
for the Umm al-Joud integrated residential development in Mecca.

More than $1.1bn-worth of construction contracts were awarded in Saudi Arabia’s healthcare sector. The
value of contract awards in the kingdom’s healthcare sector is expected to rise sharply by the end of the
year, with contractors still waiting for contract awards on two medical cities worth an estimated $6.7bn and
an estimated $354m hospital expansion scheme in Jeddah.

Despite Saudi Arabia awarding more construction contracts than anywhere else in the GCC, the $4bn worth
of contract awards in the first quarter is more than 67 per cent down on the $12.3bn worth of deals in the
same period last year.

In the UAE, the majority of the construction awards were in the hospitality sector, with the $733m of deals
forming 28 per cent of the $2.6bn of total contracts awarded in the UAE. The biggest of these was the
$515m contract awarded for the Habtoor Palace hotel complex project, planned in Dubai.

The slowdown in Abu Dhabi continued into 2012, with construction awards in the first quarter of 2012 falling
by 57.4 per cent compared with the same period in 2011.

Qatar’s construction marker remained relatively flat on a year-by-year basis, with the $2.6bn of contract
awards for the first quarter in 2012 only marginally lower than the $2.7bn awarded for the first quarter in
2011.

Qatar’s construction sector was propped up in the first quarter by the award of a $1.2bn dredging contract
for the second phase of the New Doha Port Project, which accounted for 75 per cent of the total contract
awards for the quarter.

The transport sector dominated spending in the construction sectors in Kuwait and Oman. The largest
contract award in Kuwait was an infrastructure package for an airport expansion project. In Oman, it was for
the first phase of the Batinah Expressway scheme.

Saudi Culture

Islamic principles and social customs influence all aspects of life and society in Saudi Arabia and are strictly
observed.   The country adheres to the Islamic Sharia legal system.         The Saudi working week is from
Saturday to Wednesday, with Thursday and Friday as the weekend.


ECONOMY

With the largest proven oil resources in the world, Saudi Arabia is by far the largest world exporter of oil. Oil
was discovered in 1938, and the then US-controlled Aramco (Arabian American Oil Company) began
production. Saudi Aramco, nationalised since the 1980s, controls all onshore oil and has the largest reserve
base of any company in the Exporting Countries (OPEC); it has always been the dominant player within
OPEC in adjusting production in line with market stability.

Large oil earnings, particularly since the oil price rises of the early 1970s, have allowed the Government to
spend heavily on its people and on building the infrastructure of a modern economy. The Saudi economy is
thus heavily dependent on oil earnings and the high level of Government spending they make possible: a
large and varied private sector exists but remains vulnerable to fluctuations in the oil price and government
spending. Economic growth was barely fast enough in the 1980s and 1990s to keep up with population
growth, but very high oil prices in 2003-7 have made possible a strong spurt in growth. While oil prices
have dropped from their highest levels the current stability of oil prices has helped the Saudi economy
weather the global financial crisis very effectively.

Foreign workers form the vast bulk of the private sector workforce. But with a rapid increase in the Saudi
population, government policy is now focussing on the need to create more jobs for young Saudis.

Economic reform continues: moves in recent years include opening some previously closed sectors of the
economy, such as the gas industry, to investment by foreign companies. Upstream oil remains closed to
foreign investment. In 2005 Saudi Arabia joined the World Trade Organisation.

GEOGRAPHY

About the size of Western Europe, Saudi Arabia covers four-fifths of the Arabian Peninsula. The Red Sea lies
on the West coast and the Persian Gulf, Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates on the East. Saudi
Arabia has borders with Yemen and Oman in the South, and Jordan, Iraq and Kuwait in the North. There are
thirteen provinces. Most of the population is concentrated in Jeddah and Mecca in the West, Riyadh in the
centre and Dammam and Al Khobar in the East. Saudi Arabia’s Empty Quarter is the largest sand desert in
the world and is the size of France.

Inland, summer temperatures can reach 50°C during the day, but can fall dramatically to below 30°C at
night. In winter temperatures can be close to freezing in the desert. The coastal temperatures are more
moderate, but humidity is high.


POLITICS

Recent Political Developments

Saudi Arabia is a Monarchy with a political system rooted in Islam’s Sharia law. The monarchy is directly
descended from the founder of modern day Saudi Arabia. King Abdullah, the Head of State, is also the
Prime Minister and nominates a Council of Ministers. His half-brother, Prince Sultan, is the Crown Prince.
Other members of the King's close family hold important roles; these include Prince Naïf, appointed Second
Deputy Prime Minister in March 2009.

Between 1992 and 1993, King Fahd introduced a number of political reforms, including the establishment in
1993 of a Consultative Council, the Majlis Al-Shura. The Council has 150 male members appointed by the
King. In addition there are 12 female advisers to the Council. The Council’s role is advisory. It debates and
votes on new political legislation, but only the Council of Ministers can enact a law.

In January 2003, the then Crown Prince Abdullah set out proposals for "self-reform and the promotion of
political participation" in the Arab world. A few days later he received a petition signed by 120 people which
called for reforms, including: election of members to the Shura council and regional assemblies; an
independent judiciary; freedom of speech and association; the development of civil society and increased

In October 2006, the King announced the creation of an Allegiance Commission.               Made up of senior
members of the Al Saud family, the Commission governs the selection of a new King or Crown Prince if
either of their predecessors should die. It also provides for the possibility of abdication in the event of
medical incapacitation.

King Abdullah’s most recent round of reforms took place in February 2009. These reforms included: four
new cabinet ministers; new judges; new heads of governmental bodies including the Saudi Arabian Monetary
Authority (SAMA, the central bank) and the religious police; 79 new members of the Shura Council (the
fledgling parliament); two senior military appointments; and new religious figures.

King Abdullah also appointed the first woman to hold ministerial rank in Saudi Arabia. Dr Nora al Fayez is
now Deputy Education Minister for Girls’ education.



Elections

As part of this reform process, the then Crown Prince Abdullah announced, in October 2003, a plan to hold
municipal elections for half of the members of municipal councils. These elections were the first national
elections in Saudi Arabia. Polling took place between February and April 2005.           In 2009, the Cabinet
announced that further elections would be postponed for two years, these took place on 29 September 2011,
immediately after the announcement by King Abdullah that women will be allowed to participate fully in the
next municipal council elections in 2015 (and will be eligible for appointment to the next session of the Shura
Council in mid-2013.

                                      SCREENING COMMITTEE- GUIDELINES



Objectives
The objective of screening by the Screening Committee is to assess the suitability of an Indian engineering
contracting company from all points of view- technical, financial and managerial competence- before it is
allowed to participate in tenders for overseas construction engineering contracts (civil/ electro-mechanical
etc.).
Screening Committee approval is generally accorded selectively for activities for which applicant companies
have established capability in one or more of the following construction engineering activities involving:
   i.        Dams, canals, irrigation works, tunnels and earthworks.
   ii.       Roads, bridges, flyovers, airports.
   iii.      Water and sewage treatment plants, pipelines.

             activities.

Scope
The coverage of Screening Committee includes all companies wishing to undertake overseas construction
engineering projects involving design, construction, erection and/or commissioning. Indian companies
wishing to export project construction items or consultancy services are outside the purview of the
Screening Committee.

Types of Clearance
Clearance may be accorded to an applicant company for one or more of the following:
   i.      Prime Contractor      or
   ii.     Sub Contractor to a Foreign Contracting Company or

             getting approval by the screening committee.
   iv)       company should have minimum tangible net worth and operating experience as under:


   Contractor description                                     Networth(Rs.)      Minimum experience *
   as Prime-Contractor                                            01 crore                 10years

years, in undertaking some comparable type of works in India. Similarly in case of Sub contractor to
Foreign Prime-contractor the minimum experience should be 7 years. In the case of a Sub-contractor to an
Indian Prime-Contractor, the experience in the line of activity in India should be a minimum of 3 years.
iv)     In respect of newly formed firms/companies, joint-ventures or SPV’s created with a view to
undertaking and executing overseas projects, the criteria for any one of the Indian or overseas constituents
/ partners would form the basis for granting approvals
Screening Procedure:
Applications from applicant company should be submitted in 12 copies in the prescribed form, allowing for a
4 weeks time for decision so as to enable receipt of reports from company’s bankers on the standing credit
worthiness and dealings and also to enable suitable appraisal. PEPC will scrutinise and supplement data to
the extent necessary to make the facts complete and ensure that the applications reach the Committee
Members atleast 10 days before the scheduled date of the meeting.
   Screening Committee accords clearance after taking into account the following factors:
   i)     Constitution of Board of Directors of a company including the qualifications, background and
          experience of directors;
   ii) Track record of a company regarding projects executed in India and overseas, as also the nature of
       works undertaken. Particular emphasis is placed on record of timely completion; and value of single
       largest contract executed;
   iii) Exposure of a company’s management and personnel in dealing with international organisations,
        and in executing works to international specifications. This is of particular relevance if the company
        seeks clearance as Sub-contractor to a foreign company (from a third country);
   iv) Qualifications and experience of key-personnel currently in full - time employment of company.
   v) Financial position of a company, including contingent liability and bank loans as a proportion to the
      net-worth; and paid up capital;
   vi) Approach to international marketing and information systems. Ability of the company to furnish
   information required by institutions, from time to time.
   vii) The plant and machinery owned by the company, the nature and size of which would commensurate
        with the volume of business proposed to be undertaken. Though these equipments may not be of
        use overseas, considering their unsuitability to the job proposed, this factor will give the Committee
        an idea of the applicant company’s status in the business and his familiarity in handling equipment, a
        factor that is very important for the purpose of deciding his suitability for undertaking contracts
        overseas.
   These are broad criteria for approval of companies. However, the Screening Committee in its discretion
   may approve a particular company to take up jobs abroad or renew the approval.

                                                     154
                                                                         Global Project Opportunities: June, 2012

Validity of Clearance:
Clearance accorded by the Screening Committee is valid for a period of three years after which company
must approach Screening Committee afresh.
Renewal applications shall have to be submitted in the prescribed format for clearance by the Screening
Committee of the Council.
Review of Companies already screened
Review occurs in the following situations:
    i)   Those seeking change in status (e.g. from Sub-contractor to Prime-contractor or from one-shot to
         regular)
    ii) Companies whose guarantees have been invoked, or where recurring disputes have arisen either
        with clients or with Sub-contractors, leading to litigation etc.
    iii) Company whose management/ownership has undergone major change since the date of original
         approval.
         For the above, PEPC works out a procedure for obtaining information from their members on a
         quarterly basis.
         In case of adverse reports about a screened firm reported to the Screening Committee by any of its
         members, the Screening Committee will be entitled to take such action as it may deem fit including
         reduction in value limits approved or de-listing from the approved list.
Quorum of the Meeting:
Three members shall be the quorum of Meeting of the Screening Committee provided the three members
shall include one member representing Government Department, one representing Financial Institution and
one from industry.
Presence of Company’s representative :
The committee may ask the applicant company to depute its representative at the meeting for clarifications
or the company may depute its representative with the permission of the Committee.


PROCEDURES FOR PROJECT EXPORTS – CONSULTANCY SERVICES

Under the procedures prescribed in the Project Export Manual, consultancy projects to be undertaken by
Indian Consultancy Organizations are required to be approved by a Competent Authority, both at pre-tender
and post tender stages. If the consultancy contract is for less than Rs. 5 crore, then these clearances have
to be obtained from the respective Authorized Dealer of foreign exchange and if the value of the contract is
between Rs. 5 crore and Rs.10 crore, then the approval is required from Exim Bank. If it exceeds Rs. 10
crore, the approval is to be obtained from the Working Group consisting of members form Exim Bank, RBI,
ECGC and the Authorized Dealer/Commercial Bank of the Consultant.
The requirement of getting prior clearance from the concerned authorities for such consultancy contracts
which are on cash basis and are with the Overseas Government Agencies and are also funded by multilateral
funding agencies may be dispensed with by suitable amendments in PEM procedures and FEMA.




PROCEDURE FOR CLEARANCE OF PROPOSALS OF PROJECT EXPORTS -– Construction/turnkey

(i)     All applications to the Working Group are required to be submitted by the exporters through their
bankers (who must be authorised dealers in foreign exchange) in the prescribed form in the required
number of copies sufficiently in advance to enable the Working Group to hold a meeting of its members for
consideration of the proposal. When a proposal is approved by the Working Group, a package clearance is
granted by Exim Bank, on behalf of all the members of the Working Group and conveyed to the exporters’
bankers through whom the proposal was received. The Working Group’s clearance will ordinarily be given

Memo PEM are complied with.
(iii)   On the basis of experience gained over the years and in order to enable the exporters
to expeditiously obtain clearance for contracts for supply of engineering goods on deferred payment terms,
turnkey contracts and civil construction contracts, powers have been delegated to authorised dealers and
Exim Bank to grant post-award clearances in cases where the contract value does not exceed U.S. Dollar
100 Million. Proposals for undertaking such export contracts up to the value of U.S. Dollar 100 Million will,
therefore, be cleared by authorised dealers / Exim Bank . Proposals for undertaking such contracts
exceeding U.S. Dollar 100 Million in value will need to be cleared by the Working Group.

“As regards civil construction contracts, the Working Group will consider proposals only from
contractors who are on the approved list of Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of
India in order to ensure that only contractors having the necessary competence and capability
undertake overseas construction contracts”.

(iv)    In the case of contracts for export of services on cash payment terms requiring fund-based and/or
non-fund based facilities, as also those involving deferred payment terms, authorised dealers and Exim Bank
have been empowered to grant clearance upto the value of U.S. Dollar 100 Million. Proposals for
undertaking such export contracts will, therefore, be cleared by authorised dealers/Exim Bank upto the value
of U.S. Dollar 100 Million. Proposals for undertaking such contracts exceeding U.S. Dollar 100 Million in
value will need to be cleared by the Working Group.
(v)     Proposals for deferred payment export or turnkey projects against Buyers’ Credits as well as for
export of managerial / technical consultancy services on deferred payment terms as also those on cash
payment terms involving grant of any fund-based and/or non-fund based facilities in excess of the monetary
