Contract was awarded by Occidental of Abu Dhabi on behalf of ADNOC
KBR has won a project management consultancy (PMC) contract for two major projects that the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) is undertaking. Under the terms of the contract, KBR will undertake management for the front-end engineering and design services (FEED) phase of the Dalma Gas Field development, and will also work on the detailed design and survey phase of the Hail and Ghasha Islands project.
The Hail and Ghasha project is said to be one of the largest gas field projects that ADNOC is undertaking. On completion, it is expected to produce 1 billion cu/ft of sour gas per day. The project has vast infrastructure requirements including the design and construction of 11 artificial islands.
“KBR is pleased with the opportunity to continue our sustained relationship with ADNOC by providing our expertise, best practices and knowledge in project management to oversee ADNOC’s field production activities in Abu Dhabi. This project demonstrates KBR’s ability to offer cost-effective solutions to our customers in the EMEA region by combining our global expertise and local presence,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR president for EMEA.
ADNOC says it is undertaking the Dalma Gas Field development project in line with its objective to deliver a more sustainable and economic gas supply, by implementing a fully integrated gas masterplan that increases productivity, performance and delivery.
The contract work will take 24 months to complete, with an option to extend another 12 months.
