Fossil Energy – Lower Zakum Field
ADNOC announced the award of a $548 million contract to build a new main gas line at its Lower Zakum field offshore of AbuDhabi.
The award will increase Lower Zakum field’s gas production capacity from 430 million to 700 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD), supporting ADNOC’s plans to enable gas self-sufficiency for the United Arab Emirates and cater for increasing global energy demand.
The EPC contract was awarded by ADNOC Offshore to National Petroleum Construction Company after a competitive tender process.
The new pipeline will cater for the increased volume of associated gas produced by Lower Zakum field as the field’s oil production capacity increases to 450,000 barrels of oil per day by 2025.
