UkrGasVydobuvannya plans UAH 242 MM for procurement of steel drill pipes
On October 11, 2018, UkrGasVydobuvannya announced a tender for procurement of steel drill pipes for the threshold price of UAH 242 MM including VAT. Solicitation documents on the tender can be obtained until October 24, 2018. The deadline for bid application submittals is November 2, 2018. The winner of the tender should supply the contracted batch of steel drill pipes within 180 days from the signature of the procurement contract.
The tender includes procurement of 300 (3049 t) steel drill pipes with upset pipe-body ends and weld-on tool joints in accordance to API 5DP and of 2018-2019 make.
In July 2018, UkrGasVydobuvannya held similar tender for 1226 kelly and collar drill pipes. At that time, VINYX General Trading LLC, Drill Collars and Kellys Plant Subsidiary Enterprise, and VOREX Limited Liabiliti Company competed in the tender. The bid auctioning was outcompeted by General Trading LLC with their final bid proposal of UAH 94 MM. However, they were rejected due to non-compliance of their pipes to the tender technical specifications. So, the contract was awarded to the next competitive bid proposal from the Sumy-based Drill Collars and Kellys Plant Subsidiary Enterprise (directed by Viktor Cherniavskiy), who committed to supply the tendered pipe batches for UAH 117 MM including VAT.
