NEWS, Projects, Special services

Dubai-based Specialist Services has landed a contract from Petrofac for the provision of local equipment rooms (LER) and local control rooms (LCR) buildings for the Upper Zakum 750 Island Surface Facility Project off the coast of Abu Dhabi.

A global supplier of modular buildings and packaging solutions for the oil and gas and utility industries, the Specialist Services win follows a previous award for the same development by Leighton Offshore for the island's harbour house buildings.

The scope of work includes detailed design, engineering, fabrication, commissioning and load-out of the 12 modules with total built-up weight of 8,170 tons.

Petrofac is a leading international service provider to the oil and gas industry. Its Petrofac Emirates operation in Abu Dhabi, in consortium with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, has a contract for engineering, procurement, construction, transportation and commissioning of island surface facilities on four artificial islands with the Zakum Development Company (ZADCO) for their UZ 750 field development project in Abu Dhabi.

Petrofac has subcontracted to Specialist Services the provision of LERs and LCRs. All buildings will be installed on the Abu Dhabi ZADCO Upper Zakum Offshore Field located in the Arabian Gulf, 84km from Abu Dhabi.

Chris Ridley, group sales and marketing director at Specialist Services Group, said: “This is a very large and demanding project that we are proud to have been selected to execute. Our unique capabilities in terms of our in-house engineering, strong project management, in-house fabrication and ideally located waterfront facilities ensured we were viewed by Petrofac as the ideal partner to complete this complex project.”
