Breaking News

Petrofac Emirates has been awarded two contracts, together worth around US$1.65 billion with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) in the United Arab Emirates.
The engineering, procurement (including novated long lead items), construction, transportation, offshore installation and commissioning contracts are for ADNOC’s Dalma Gas Development Project. The work scope encompasses offshore packages at Arzanah island and surrounding offshore fields, located around 140 km off the north-west coast of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
The first package, valued at US$1.065 billion, is for gas processing facilities at Arzanah island. Under the terms of the 33-month lump-sum contract awarded to Petrofac, the scope of work includes inlet facilities with gas processing and compression units, power generation units, utilities and other associated infrastructure.
For the second package, valued at US$591 million, Petrofac is leading a Joint Venture with SapuraKencana HL Sdn. Bhd. Abu Dhabi. Under the terms of the 30-month lump-sum contract, the scope of work includes three new well-head platforms, removal and replacement of an existing topside, new pipelines, subsea umbilicals, composite and fibre optic cables.
The Dalma project is a key part of the Ghasha ultra-sour gas concession which is central to ADNOC’s strategic objective of enabling gas self-sufficiency for the UAE.
George Salibi, Chief Operating Officer – Engineering & Construction, commented:
"Petrofac has a strong track record in the UAE, with a presence here since 1991 and around 3,000 staff in country. We are fully committed to supporting continued and sustainable investment in Abu Dhabi’s oil and gas industry through our strategic focus on maximising local delivery, and are pleased that our approach will generate substantial In-Country Value for the local economy. These latest contract awards build on our existing relationship with ADNOC Group companies and we look forward to delivering this mega project in a safe, successful and sustainable manner."
Established in the UAE in 1991, with operational centres in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, Petrofac has executed 11 major EPC projects in-country to date. Recent projects include the Upper Zakum UZ750 project, Qusahwira Field Development Phase II, the Satah Al Razboot (SARB) Package 3, the contract for expansion of compression facilities at the Bab field and development of the Bab Habshan-1 project.
