Arabtec subsidiary's consortium wins $871m Adnoc LNG contract
The consortium – made up of Target Engineering and Spain's Tecnicas Reunidas – will start project works this October
A consortium of Arabtec Holding’s Target Engineering and Spain’s Tecnicas Reunidas has won a $871.2m (3.2bn) contract for the second phase of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) LNG’s Gas Development Expansion project.
Arabtec Holding, of which Target Engineering is a subsidiary, said project works will commence in October and last 54 months.
The scope of works under the deal includes the construction of gas processing trains, supporting utilities, and offsite facilities that "will enable the transfer of 245 million standard cubic feet a day of additional low-pressure gas to Habshan from Das Island in the UAE".
Fluor Corporation has prepared the front-end engineering design for the project, with Mott MacDonald appointed as project management consultant.
Speaking on the win, Hamish Tyrwhitt, chief executive officer of Arbatec Holding, said: “This award strengthens our long-standing relationship with Adnoc Group and further builds on out reputation and portfolio of projects in the oil and gas sector.
“We look forward to working with Tecnicas on the successful delivery of this project to Adnoc LNG.”
The news comes six months after Adnoc Distribution announced that construction works have started on three distribution stations in Dubai, all located in “high traffic areas”.
Adnoc was also discussing with an international partner the possibility of implementing electric car charging facilities at its Dubai stations, as UAE state news agency, WAM, reported at the time.
