Engineering: Gas Condensate Plant ABB Builds $ 100 Million Gas Plant in Oman
ABB of Switzerland secured a $100 million (82.7 million euros) dollar contract in Oman's oil & gas industry: The company will build a new 4,500 standard cubic meters/day gas condensate processing plant for Petroleum Development Oman at Saih Nihayda.
Muscat/Oman – The new plant will serve as a backup for PDO 's existing central processing plant to ensure continued gas production for domestic and export customers, company speakers announced. The project is central to PDO 's goal to sustain gas flows from its main gas production facilities in the north part of PDO concession area. Full operability is expected for late 2014.
"This contract underscores ABB's trusted technology leadership to deliver full-scope projects to our oil and gas customers," said Veli-Matti Reinikkala, head of ABB's Process Automation division.
New Plant Uses ABB Power Technology
The Swiss company will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the condensate stabilization facilities, including project management, training, testing and on-site support for local operation and maintenance also after the plant's start-up. The project will further use ABB power equipment such as low- and medium-voltage switchgear, power transformers, the electrical control system, as well as continuous emission monitoring systems and other analytical instrumentation, the company said.
