Scope of work includes the development of facilities for unloading the Upper Zakhum field and non-system crudes at Jebel Dhana from tankers
Penspen, the UK-based provider of engineering and project management services to the energy industry, has announced that it has secured a detailed engineering contract from Target Engineering Construction Company for crude receiving facilities at Jebel Dhana in Abu Dhabi.
In a statement, Penspen said that the scope of work for the project includes the development of facilities for unloading the Upper Zakhum field and Non-System crudes at Jebel Dhana from tankers. The work will be carried out using the existing single point mooring (SPM-2) subsea pipeline and gravity pipeline to the three large tanks already in place, it added.
Both UZ and NS crudes will be blended, and the crude will be transferred to Ruwais Refinery West to feed the crude oil distillation unit (CDU) with 420,000 barrels per day.
This is the second contract that Target Engineering Construction Company has awarded to Penspen this year.
On the contract win, executive VP (Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific Regions) Neale Carter, said: “Our MEA team has a stellar reputation of delivering work to the highest standard, and we are pleased that Penspen has been chosen for this detailed engineering contract so that we can continue to build on this.”
“We look forward to continuing to grow our working relationship with Target Engineering Construction Company in the region during this project,” he stated.
Originally founded in the UK in 1954 as Spencer & Partners, the company has now grown to include more than 1,000 engineers, with major offices in London, Bristol, Newcastle, Houston, Mexico, Abu Dhabi, and Bangkok.
It has been providing engineering, project management, asset management and integrity services to the oil and gas industry worldwide for 65 years.
