Essar CCSADNOC Gas, the world-class integrated gas processing company, has announced a $3.6 billion (€3.3 billion) contract to the joint venture between National Petroleum Construction Company and Tecnicas Reunidas to expand its gas processing infrastructure in the UAE.

The scope of the contract includes the commissioning of new gas processing facilities, which will enable an optimised supply to the Ruwais Industrial Complex.

The strategic Maximising Ethane Recovery and Monetisation (MERAM) project has two key objectives:

Firstly, increasing ethane extraction, by 35-40%, from ADNOC Gas’s existing onshore facilities in the Habshan complex, by building new gas processing facilities.

Secondly, to unlock further value from existing feedstock and deliver it to Ruwais via a dedicated 120 km natural gas liquids (NGL) pipeline.

Over 70% of the award value will flow back into the UAE’s economy under ADNOC’s successful In-Country Value (ICV) program, supporting local economic growth and diversification.

Ahmed Mohamed Alebri, CEO of ADNOC Gas, says: ‘This capital project represents ADNOC Gas’ latest investment in its gas processing infrastructure and underscores our commitment to responsibly meeting our customers’ current and future energy demand for natural gas and its feedstock.’

He adds: ‘The expansion of our gas processing infrastructure will also provide additional energy to the country’s growing industrial section, while stimulating economic growth and diversification through the significant ICV generated by the contract.’

The plan includes new approaches and technologies to enable increased gas recovery from existing fields and develop untapped resources.
