American EPC major KBR has reportedly won a project management consultancy (PMC) contract for two major projects in Abu Dhabi.
The contract awarded by Occidental Abu Dhabi on behalf of the state oil giant Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) is for the management of the front-end engineering and design services (FEED) phase of the Dalma gas field development and the detailed design and surveys phase of the Hail and Ghasha Islands project in Abu Dhabi.
The work is expected to be performed over 24 months, with an option to extend another 12 months, KBR said.
ADNOC is undertaking a project for the development of the Dalma gas field in line with its objective to deliver a more sustainable and economic gas supply by implementing a fully integrated gas masterplan that increases productivity, performance and delivery.
The Hail and Ghasha Project, one of the largest sour gas fields projects that ADNOC is developing, is forecast to produce about 1bn cubic feet of sour gas per day.
The infrastructure requirements for the Hail and Ghasha projects include a minimum of 11 offshore artificial islands to be designed and constructed.
"KBR is pleased with the opportunity to continue our sustained relationship with ADNOC by providing our expertise, best practices and knowledge in project management to oversee ADNOC's field production activities in Abu Dhabi," Jay Ibrahim, KBR president for EMEA, has been quoted as saying in a media report.
"This project demonstrates KBR's ability to offer cost-effective solutions to our customers in the EMEA region by combining our global expertise and local presence," Ibrahim has reportedly said.
Revenue associated with this project was undisclosed and will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's E&C Business Segment in the second half of 2017, the company said.
