Adyard Abu Dhabi nets $17m Dana Gas contract
Firm to fabricate offshore platform for Zora gas field project
Dana Gas has awarded Adyard Abu Dhabi a $17m contract for the fabrication of an offshore platform for the Zora Field Development Project, which spans the territorial waters of Sharjah and Ajman.
The platform is an important element in the overall scope of the Zora project, the aim of which is to extract the reserves from the Zora field through an offshore facility and to transport them via a 35km subsea pipeline to an onshore gas processing facility located in Sharjah.
Fabrication of the platform will be carried out by Adyard and will include the manufacture and erection of the structure and the different deck levels. Adyard will also prepare the finished platform for safe and secure its loading onto a transportation vessel.
The platform will eventually be installed in a water depth of 24 metres, along with associated facilities.
Dana Gas already operates gas and other hydrocarbon facilities in Egypt and the Kurdistan region of Iraq, and has an onshore gas processing plant in Sajaa, Sharjah.
