ADNOC Onshore, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), has awarded two Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contracts with a combined value of around $245 million to upgrade two main oil lines and crude-receiving facilities at the Jebel Dhanna terminal in Abu Dhabi, according to a press release

China Petroleum Pipeline Engineering Company (CPPEC) and Abu Dhabi-based Target Engineering Construction Co. L.L.C were the benefactors of the contracts.

Yaser Saeed Almazrouei, Executive Director of ADNOC’s Upstream Directorate, said: “The EPC contracts awarded by ADNOC Onshore will increase the capacity of the two main oil lines and upgrade the Jebel Dhanna terminal to enable it to receive Upper Zakum and Non-System crude for delivery to the Ruwais Refinery West project.”

The contract awarded to CPPEC pertains to replace the two oil lines which transport ADNOC’s premium grade Murban crude oil from its oilfields at Bab, Bu Hasa, North East Bab, and southeast to Jebel Dhanna terminal, increasing the capacity of the pipelines by over 30%. 

Similarly, the EPC contract awarded to Target Engineering Construction Co.L.L.C. will see the contractor upgrade the crude-receiving facilities at the Jebel Dhanna Terminal, permitting feedstock delivery to the Ruwais Refinery West project.
