ADNOC Gas Bags 13.1 Billion Dirhams Contract To Widen its UAE Gas Processing Infrastructure


To expand its gas processing infrastructure in the UAE, ADNOC Gas has approved a Dh13.1 billion contract with a joint venture between National Petroleum Construction Company Co. PJSC (NPCC) and Tecnicas Reunidas S.A. The commissioning of additional gas processing facilities is part of the project's scope in order to maximize the supply of gas to the Ruwais Industrial Complex.

"This capital project represents ADNOC Gas’ latest investment in its gas processing infrastructure and underscores our commitment to responsibly meeting our customers’ current and future energy demand for natural gas and its feedstock,” said Ahmed Mohamed Alebri, CEO of ADNOC Gas. 

When used, natural gas emits fewer carbon emissions than other fossil fuels, making it a crucial transitional fuel. Additionally, it plays a significant role as a raw element in industrial value chains.

“The expansion of our gas processing infrastructure will also provide additional energy to the country’s growing industrial section, while stimulating economic growth and diversification through the significant ICV generated by the contract,” the ADNOC Gas CEO added. 

The primary goal of the "Maximizing Ethane Recovery and Monetization" project is to boost ethane extraction from ADNOC Gas's current onshore facilities in the Habshan complex by a factor of 35 to 40%. By means of new gas processing facilities, this will be accomplished. The project's second objective is to "unlock further value" from existing feedstock and transport it to Ruwais via a dedicated 120-kilometer natural gas liquids (NGL) pipeline.
