ADNOC awards $1.5bn in contracts for Dalma gas project
Abu Dhabi's ADNOC announced on November 18 it had awarded two engineering construction and procurement (EPC) contracts worth $1.46bn for the Dalma source gas project.
The contracts were given to National Petroleum Construction Co (NPCC) and a joint venture between Tecnicas Reunidas and Target Engineering, ADNOC said, and cover the development of gas conditioning facilities, wellhead topsides, pipelines and umbilicals.
NPPC will construct offshore wellhead towers, pipelines and umbilicals at the Hair Dalma, Satah, and Bu Haseer fields under a contract worth $514mn, while the Tecnicas-Target JV will build conditioning facilities for gas dehydration and compression, along with associated utilities, on Arzanah island for $950mn.
The award of the contracts signals progress at Dalma, which is situated at the Ghasha concession, the largest sour gas development in the world. Engineering work under the contracts is due to be completed in 2025, enabling Dalma to produce 340mn ft3/day of gas.
Combined production from the Ghasha fields is due to reach 1.5bn ft3/d by the end of the decade.
