Bahrain extends oilfield tender

Kingdom pushes forward deadline to submit bids to revamp Awali oilfield by two weeks, minister says.

Bahrain has extended the deadline to submit bids to revamp its onshore Awali oilfield by two weeks to October 31, the kingdom's oil minister told Reuters late on Sunday.

Bidders had asked for more time to prepare, Minister of Oil and Gas Affairs Abdul-Hussain bin Ali Mirza told Reuters.

He said 11 firms had expressed an interest in the tender, which initially had an October 17 deadline.

Bahrain hopes output can be doubled from the field, which produced about 35,000 barrels per day (bpd) in 2006.

Bahrain receives another 150,000 bpd of crude from Saudi Arabia, its share of output from the Abu Safah oilfield.
