Rejuvenation to extend life cycle of two LNG trains located in ADNOC LNG’s Das Island facilities.
Abu Dhabi National Oil Company LNG (ADNOC LNG) has announced a contract award for front-end engineering and design (FEED) for the rejuvenation of two LNG trains to Worley Engineering Pty. Limited (Worley). The trains are part of the liquefied natural gas facilities on Das Island, the center of storage and export operations for oil and gas extracted from the offshore fields of Abu Dhabi.
The rejuvenation will allow ADNOC LNG to extend the life cycle of trains 1 and 2 at the facility, enhancing efficiencies through the replacement and maintenance of key operational elements within the LNG processing units, including underground piping, major machinery, and sea water intake. The two trains hold over half of ADNOC LNG’s current production capacity.
Commenting on the FEED award, Ms. Fatema Al Nuaimi, ADNOC LNG CEO, said: “This award further highlights ADNOC LNG’s drive to invest responsibly and unlock greater value from our assets and resources. The rejuvenation of these two trains will ensure the resilience, reliability and safety of our operations, and reinforces ADNOC LNG’s commitment to its customers as we continue to work towards our long-term strategy.”
Amru Alabidi, Managing Director of Worley in the UAE, said: “Worley is proud to have been selected to support ADNOC LNG with this important project.”
The contract is the first of a two-step award. Once FEED work is complete, an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract award will follow, dependent on the results of the FEED study.
ADNOC LNG produces about 6 million tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG from its facilities on Das Island, and its planned train rejuvenation is one of multiple capital projects that ADNOC LNG is undertaking over the next three years to further upgrade its production assets and maintain its longstanding position as a reliable and responsible global energy supplier.
