ADNOC Awards NPCC $548 Million EPC Contract to Increase Lower Zakum’s Gas Production

The Lower Zakum field, located off the coast of Abu Dhabi, will receive a new main gas line as part of a $548 million contract, according to the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

By boosting gas output from the Lower Zakum field from 430 million to 700 million standard cubic feet per day, the award will help ADNOC achieve its goals of enabling gas self-sufficiency for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and meeting rising global energy demand.

Following a competitive tendering process, ADNOC Offshore selected National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) to receive the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.

Under ADNOC’s In-Country Value (ICV) program, more than 75% of the award value will be reinvested in the UAE economy, and the contractor will create employment opportunities for UAE citizens by giving them hands-on experience carrying out EPC contracts.

When Lower Zakum field’s oil production capacity rises to 450,000 barrels of oil per day by 2025, the new pipeline will be able to handle the increased volume of associated gas produced by the field.

Yaser Saeed Almazrouei, ADNOC Upstream Executive Director, said: “This contract award will enable us to produce more gas as we increase production capacity from Lower Zakum field.”

In 2025, the project will be finished, and a new undersea pipeline that runs 85 kilometers from Zakum West Super Complex to Das Island will be built. Additionally, it contains plans for the development, installation, and testing of a new platform at the super complex and a new gas reception facility at Das Island.

Ahmad Saqer Al Suwaidi, ADNOC Offshore CEO, said: “This award is an important part of the long-term development plan for the field and will help strengthen ADNOC’s position as a leading low-cost and low-carbon provider of energy for customers around the world.”
