Procurement

ExxonMobil Canada (EMC) has a formal contracting process that results in the award of business to contractors and suppliers that:

  1. Operate Safely
  2. Are competitive in cost
  3. Deliver requirements on schedule
  4. Provide the specified quality
  5. Provide optimum involvement of Canadian/Newfoundland and Labrador businesses and people

EMC's contracting procedures also ensure:

  1. Compliance with the terms of the Atlantic Accord Acts
  2. Compliance with the terms of the Benefits Agreement between the Hebron Co-venturers and the Provincial Government

Business opportunities exist for a wide range of qualified Canadian/Newfoundland and Labrador Contractors and Suppliers as:

  1. Prime Contractors and direct suppliers to EMC
  2. Subcontractors and Suppliers to the FEED (Front End Engineering Design) / EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) Major Contractors

For major tenders, EMC typically uses the following contractor selection process:

Step 1: Expression Of Interest (EOI)
EMC will invite potential bidders to complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) Form.  Forms will be available from BIDS Website (www.bids.ca) as the individual EOIs are released.  Potential bidders must be registered through www.bids.ca to access the forms. A listing of upcoming EOIs will be posted under the Procurement section of this Website as well as the NOIA Website (http://www.noia.ca)

Step 2: Contractor Qualification Process
Following the Expression of Interest Stage, EMC will issue a Prequalification Questionnaire to potential bidders to assess their qualifications against particular criteria e.g., SHE (safety health and environment) technical, financial, and experience level including experience operating in the Newfoundland and Labrador offshore environment.

Step 3: Contractor Selection
EMC will invite qualified vendors or contractors from the Prequalification Process to submit bids against an Invitation to Tender document. These bids are then assessed against a predetermined evaluation plan leading to selection of a preferred bidder. Following an approval stage, a contract is then awarded to the successful bidder.

In addition to major contracts, the Project has numerous subcontracts and supply needs. These will range from small requirements to substantial pieces of work.
