Two EPC contracts awarded to NPCC and a joint venture between Tecnicas Reunidas and Target Engineering
The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) recently announced the awarding of two engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts totalling US$ 1.46bn (AED 5.36bn) for the Dalma Gas Development Project.
The Dalma field is part of the Ghasha Concession which is the world’s largest offshore sour gas development and an important enabler of gas self-sufficiency for the UAE.
The two EPC contracts, awarded to National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) and a joint venture (JV) between Tecnicas Reunidas and Target Engineering, include the construction of gas conditioning facilities, wellhead topsides, pipelines and umbilicals.
Package A of the two Dalma EPC contracts was awarded to NPCC and is valued at $514 million (AED1.89 billion). Package B, awarded to the Tecnicas Reunidas and Target Engineering JV, is valued at US$ 950mn (AED 3.49 bn) and covers the EPC of gas conditioning facilities for gas dehydration, compression and associated utilities on Arzanah Island located 80km from Abu Dhabi.
“As we continue to execute this strategic project, we are ensuring it delivers substantial In-Country Value to drive economic growth and support the objectives of the UAE’s Principles of the 50,” noted Yaser Saeed Almazrouei, ADNOC Upstream Executive Director.
Both engineering contracts are expected to be completed in 2025 and will enable the Dalma field to produce around 340 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of natural gas.
As part of this, ADNOC and its partners have today awarded a contract to Technip Energies to update the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) for the concession.
