Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC Group) today announced the award of a $548 million (AED2.01 billion) contract to build a new main gas line at its Lower Zakum field offshore of Abu Dhabi.
The award will increase the Lower Zakum field’s gas production capacity from 430 million to 700 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD), supporting ADNOC’s plans to enable gas self-sufficiency for the UAE and cater to increasing global energy demand.
The Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract was awarded by ADNOC Group Offshore to National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) after a competitive tender process. The new pipeline will cater for the increased volume of associated gas produced by Lower Zakum field as the field’s oil production capacity increases to 450,000 barrels of oil per day by 2025.
The project will be completed in 2025 and it will see the construction of a new subsea pipeline that will run 85 kilometers from Zakum West Super Complex to Das Island. It also includes provisions to construct, install and test a new platform at the super complex as well as a new gas receiving facility at Das Island.
