Ducab wins $30m Abu Dhabi oil pipeline order
Abu Dhabi, November 2, 2010
Ducab, a leading manufacturer of power and special cables in the region, has won an order worth Dh110 million ($29.9 million) from China Petroleum Engineering and Construction Corporation (CPECC) for the Abu Dhabi Crude Oil Pipeline (Adcop).
Ducab is working with CPECC in the delivery of low and medium voltage cables as well as instrumentation and control cables for the entirety of CPECC’s EPC responsibilities.
Valued at Dh11.7 billion in total, Adcop entails a 370 kilometre pipeline between Habshan and Fujairah, allowing project owners International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC) to blend crude from various sources in the Middle East at a proposed refinery in Fujairah.
Laith Madi, manager of Oil, Gas and Petrochemical (OGP) Sector at Ducab, said that the pipeline will include at least six delivery stations spread across the UAE, requiring complex logistical coordination, carrying a load of up to 1.8 million b/d of crude oil once operational.
“The scope of the Adcop project has incredible long-term implications for Abu Dhabi, and Ducab has proven time and again their commitment to developing works of such calibre,” added Franz Cerhak, procurement executive manager at CPECC.
Other Ducab OGP projects include partnerships with Italy’s Saipem & Korea’s SK for the Adco Bab Gas project and the KOC new booster station BS160, as well as ventures with Spain’s Tecnicas and UK’s Petrofac for the Adco SAS oil field development.-TradeArabia News Service
