Abu Dhabi have awarded a contract to Penspen for slug catcher replacement support on Zirku Island in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), according to a press release.

The contract aims to replace the existing slug catchers operated by ADNOC Offshore at the Zirku Satah plant with new corrosion-resistant nickel super alloy. It will also include modifications to associated pipelines, instrumentation and control systems, electrical, civil and structural works.

Neale Carter, Penspen’s Executive Vice President for the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific Regions, said, “This project continues our support for the Satah field and Zirku Island developments and will enhance our established position as a valued engineering services provider in the Middle East.”

ADNOC Offshore operates the Upper Zakum (UZ), Lower Zakum (LZ), Umm Shaif, Nasr, Umm Lulu & SARB, Satah and Umm Al Dalkh (UAD) offshore oil fields, located in the Arabian Gulf. It also operates oil and gas processing plants on Zirku and Das islands.
