ADNOC Refining, the refining arm of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), has awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) services contract to McDermott International for the refinery offgases (ROG) project at Ruwais.

The deal includes evaluating various technology configurations and options for the recovery of hydrogen, ethane, and sales-grade liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) or C3 and C4, McDermott said in a statement.

The FEED services will be used for the preparation of the engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) estimate and inquiry phase.

Work on the new project will immediately begin and will be reflected in McDermott’s Q2 records.
