The new gas compressor plant will enable Adnoc to substantially increase gas output from its Habshan Complex
Adnoc Gas Processing, a key subsidiary of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc), has inked a deal with Petrofac to undertake a major engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) project at its Habshan Complex, which is located west of Abu Dhabi. The contract was awarded to Petrofac Emirates and is said to be valued at approximately US $700mn and involves the provision of EPC services for a new gas compressor plant.
Comprising three gas compressor trains, associated utilities and power systems, the new plant will support Adnoc to substantially increase gas output from the Habshan Complex.
With a commitment to deliver In-Country Value, emiratisation is a key business priority and Petrofac is actively promoting current career opportunities, a statement from the firm noted.
“We are thrilled to have been selected by Adnoc, one of Petrofac’s longest-standing customers, to undertake this significant new EPC project in our home market of the UAE. We very much look forward to working together with Adnoc to safely and sustainably develop this critical energy resource,” remarked Petrofac’s Group CEO Tareq Kawash.
Elie Lahoud, Chief Operating Officer at Petrofac Engineering & Construction noted, “We have a long and strong track record supporting Adnoc in the UAE, rooted in our steadfast commitment to maximising local delivery, investing in the local supply chain, and developing local teams. This focus on In-Country Value will once again underpin our approach to delivery for Adnoc on the strategically significant Habshan Complex.”
Petrofac first established a presence in the UAE in 1991 and has developed a large workforce to support both regional and international projects, the statement concluded.
