The contracts underline the company's commitment to unlocking the full potential of its assets and fields to contribute to its objective of creating a more profitable upstream business
The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) has awarded contracts worth $324 million (AED1.19 billion) to optimise onshore field operations and enhance efficiencies as it continues to invest responsibly to drive smart growth.
Adnoc Onshore, a subsidiary of Adnoc, awarded the three contracts, which will see the procurement and construction (PC) of flowlines and wellhead installations across several onshore oil fields in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The contracts also include the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of a new bypass system to provide critical backup for the existing crude receiving stations at the Jebel Dhanna and Fujairah export terminals.
The contracts were awarded to Galfar Engineering and Contracting and Robt Stone. Over 70 per cent of the combined award value will flow back into the UAE economy under Adnoc’s In-Country Value (ICV) programme, reinforcing Adnoc’s commitment to maximising value for the nation.
Yaser Saeed Almazrouei, Executive Director of Adnoc’s Upstream Directorate, says: "These awards further highlight Adnoc’s drive to invest responsibly to unlock greater value from our assets and resources and build long-term resilience as we deliver our 2030 strategy."
The two PC contracts awarded for flowlines and wellheads are split into two parts. The first contract, valued at $71 million, has been awarded to Galfar Engineering and Contracting and will see the contractor procure and construct flowlines and wellhead installations for the Adnoc Onshore Asab and Sahil fields.
The second contract, valued at $168 million, has gone to Robt Stone, who will procure and construct flowlines and wellhead installations for the Adnoc Onshore Bab field.
The scope of work includes residual engineering, procurement, construction, pre-commissioning, and commissioning of natural oil producer wells and water injection wells at the respective fields. Both contracts are expected to be completed in five years.
Galfar Engineering and Contracting also got the third contract, an EPC. Worth $84 million, it will create a new bypass system to provide critical backup for Adnoc Onshore’s existing crude receiving stations at the Jebel Dhanna and Fujairah export terminals. The project is expected to be completed in 30 months.
