The facility will increase Adnoc’s production capacity by 9.6mn tonnes per annum and will feature LNG export infrastructure
A front-end engineering and design contract (FEED) has been awarded to McDermott International by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) for a new, carbon-efficient liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Fujairah.
McDermott has been named design contractor for the plant, which is currently in design stage and is likely to see awarding to an EPC contract in 2023, the firm said. On completion, the plant is set to become one of the world’s lowest carbon intensity LNG production facilities through incorporating new technologies and running on clean power, it added.
Adnoc expects the Fujairah LNG export terminal to increase its LNG production capacity by 9.6mn tonnes per annum (MTPA), which is in response to the growing global demand for natural gas. The facility will also likely feature LNG storage tanks, an export jetty with an option for bunkering, and other associated facilities.
The Fujairah LNG export terminal will include two trains, each with a 4.8mn tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG capacity.
