Petrofac has been awarded a US$2.3 billion contract by Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO) for the development of the onshore Asab oil field.
Under the 44-month lump-sum contract, Petrofac will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services to upgrade the production capacity of the Asab field.
The rejuvenation of the Asab field is central to ADCO's overall development plan to increase its production and achieve the committed 1.8 million barrels of oil per day contributing towards achieving the country's additional production. In addition to the production capacity upgrade of Asab, Petrofac's scope includes upgrading the facility's capacity to accept increased production from Sahil, Shah and other south east fields and to upgrade the associated utilities and water handling facilities.
Commenting on the award, Ayman Asfari, Petrofac's group chief executive, said: "This contract represents one of Petrofacís most important project awards to date and is a significant achievement for our Engineering & Construction business. In 2008, Petrofac separately engaged in a joint venture with Mubadala Petroleum Services Company, and the creation of Petrofac Emirates reinforces our commitment to working in Abu Dhabi and to establishing a long-term and sustainable business in the Emirate."
