UK firm TechnipFMC wins EPC contract in Abu Dhabi
The scope of work for the EPC project includes the installation of a sulphate reduction plant (SRP) module along with new installations and tie-in
UK-based TechnipFMC has won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Zakum Development Company for a sulphate reduction plant on West Island located offshore Abu Dhabi.
The scope of work for the EPC project includes the installation of a sulphate reduction plant (SRP) module along with new installations and tie-in to existing facilities in West Island.
The SRP module incorporates front-line water treatment technologies with advanced filtration and nano-filtration systems.
These systems are used for water injection into Upper Zakum western areas reservoir tight structure, which requires high quality water with less sulphate content and particle size.
Nello Uccelletti, president of TechnipFMC’s Onshore/Offshore business, said: “We are proud of this award which demonstrates our long standing commitment to Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
“This EPC award is one of the strategic early engagement achievement, following the successful completion by TechnipFMC of the concept and front end engineering design (FEED) studies for the full Upper Zakum Field Development project, including the SRP.”
