Adnoc Awards $400 Million Deal To Baker Hughes


Baker Hughes has been granted a contract worth more than $400 million by Adnoc for the provision of all-electric compression equipment for its liquefied natural gas project in Ruwais. The compressors of the US oilfield technology business will be powered by 75-megawatt electric motors.

The Ruwais facility will be the first in the Mena area to use renewable energy, making it "one of the lowest carbon-intensity LNG facilities in the world," according to the state-run energy corporation.

“The Ruwais LNG project reinforces Adnoc’s leadership within the LNG industry and underscores our commitment to decarbonisation, sustainability and innovation,” said Fatema Al Nuaimi, executive vice president of downstream business management at Adnoc.

“The project aligns with Adnoc’s objectives to grow our energy portfolio with lower-carbon solutions, reinforcing our position as a reliable global supplier of natural gas.”

The LNG project consists of two natural gas liquefaction trains with a total capacity of 9.6 million metric tonnes per annum. When completed, it will more than double Adnoc’s LNG production capacity amid growing global demand for natural gas. Adnoc had previously said the Ruwais plant will run on renewable and nuclear grid power, as per thenationalnews.

Ruwais, at the heart of Adnoc's downstream aspirations, has been designated for a multibillion-dollar expansion that would increase its refining capacity to 1.5 million barrels per day by 2025, making it the world's largest refiner in terms of capacity.
