Two Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contracts are to be awarded by ADNOC Onshore, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
The contracts (which have a combined value of around $245 million) will upgrade two main oil lines (MOLs) and crude receiving facilities at the Jebel Dhanna terminal in Abu Dhabi.
The EPC contracts were awarded to China Petroleum Pipeline Engineering Company Limited – Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi-based Target Engineering Construction Co. LLC.
Yaser Saeed Almazrouei, Executive Director of ADNOC’s Upstream Directorate, said: “The EPC contracts awarded by ADNOC Onshore will increase the capacity of the two main oil lines and upgrade the Jebel Dhanna Terminal to enable it to receive Upper Zakum and Non-System crude for delivery to the Ruwais Refinery West project.”
He added: “The awards follow a very competitive tender process and highlight how ADNOC is making smart investments to optimise performance and unlock greater value from our assets. Crucially, a significant portion of the awards will flow back into the UAE’s economy under ADNOC’s ICV program, reinforcing our commitment to maximise value for the nation as we create a more profitable upstream business and deliver our 2030 strategy.”
The EPC contract awarded to China Petroleum Pipeline Engineering Company Limited – Abu Dhabi is valued at approximately $135 million. Its scope is to replace the two MOLs which transport ADNOC’s premium grade Murban crude oil from its oilfields at Bab, Bu Hasa, North East Bab, and South East to Jebel Dhanna terminal, increasing the capacity of the pipelines by over 30%.
The EPC contract awarded to Target Engineering Construction Co LLC is valued at approximately $110 million and will see the contractor upgrade the crude receiving facilities at the Jebel Dhanna terminal, enabling ADNOC to utilise parts of the terminal’s existing facilities to import Upper Zakum crude oil from offshore and Non-System crude, for delivery to the new Ruwais Refinery West project, located approximately 12 km to the east of Jebel Dhanna terminal.
