KIEV, March 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine’s oil and gas company Naftogaz Ukrainy in the second phase of the bidding contest got three offers of services for evaluating its gas pipeline system, and it will determine the winner in the near future, the deputy chief of the Naftogaz board, Vadim Chuprun, said at a meeting of the bidding contest committee.
“By the second phase of the contest three bids have been filed – those from Ernst&Young, Duff&Phelps, and Baker Tally-Ukraine. Thomas&Simonova was not invited to take part in the second round, because its proposal failed to meet the terms of reference,” Chuprun said. “The results of the contest will be declared in the near future.”
He said the three bidders made the following proposals for evaluating the gas pipeline system and the underground gas storages. Ernst and Young will be prepared to do the job for 740,000 dollars, Duff&Phels, for 559,000 dollars, and Baker Tilly-Ukraine, for 512,000 dollars.
Originally four companies made bids for the appraisal of the Ukrainian pipeline system – Thomas&Simonova (of Kiev), Duff&Phelps (of New York), Baker Tilly-Ukraine (of Kiev), and Ernst&Young (Kiev).
