Abu Dhabi/UAE – Petrofac Emirates has been awarded two contracts, together worth around 1.65 billion dollars with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) in the United Arab Emirates.
The engineering, procurement (including novated long lead items), construction, transportation, offshore installation and commissioning contracts are for Adnoc’s Dalma Gas Development Project. The work scope encompasses offshore packages at Arzanah island and surrounding offshore fields, located around 140 km off the north-west coast of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
The first package, valued at 1.065 billion dollars, is for gas processing facilities at Arzanah island. Under the terms of the 33-month lump-sum contract awarded to Petrofac, the scope of work includes inlet facilities with gas processing and compression units, power generation units, utilities and other associated infrastructure.
For the second package, valued at 591 million dollars, Petrofac is leading a joint venture with Sapura Kencana Abu Dhabi. Under the terms of the 30-month lump-sum contract, the scope of work includes three new well-head platforms, removal and replacement of an existing topside, new pipelines, subsea umbilicals, composite and fibre optic cables.
The Dalma project is a key part of the Ghasha ultra-sour gas concession which is central to Adnoc’s strategic objective of enabling gas self-sufficiency for the UAE.
