Gasco project nears completion
Abu Dhabi, June 18, 2012
Abu Dhabi Gas Industries (Gasco) has completed 90 per cent of the work at its Habshan 5 gas processing plant in May, according to a report.
Gasco is a joint venture between the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc), Shell, Total, and Partex, and the integration of Atheer (a wholly-owned Adnoc Company).
The feat was achieved in just 33 months, well ahead of the 50-month contractual period for the project, the Gulf News report said citing the Gasco magazine.
Habshan plant is designed to process 1,000 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd)of offshore gas from Umm Shaif and an additional 1,000 mmscfd of onshore gas comprising a mix of associated gas from Adco and non-associated high sour gas from the Habshan fields.
