The Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma- Opco), a unit of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc), has awarded a US $350 million engineering, procurement and construction contract to McDermott International for the company to upgrade Zakum Field’s water injection system.
Located approximately 48 nautical miles northwest of Abu Dhabi in the UAE, the field includes five water injection platform modules at Zakum West Super Complex and two modules at Zakum Central Super Complex, which are used to maintain pressure in the surrounding wells. The project falls into two parts: pressure upgrade and capacity upgrade, according to a report in Gulf News Daily.
Engineering will commence immediately with the pressure and capacity upgrades planned for completion within Q2 2012. Installation will be carried out using vessels from McDermott’s regional fleet.
