Abu Dhabi, August 2, 2012
Technip, a global leader in project management and construction for the energy industry, has won a major engineering contract for Abu Dhabi’s Upper Zakum 750K offshore project from Zakum Development Company (Zadco).
The contract, which Technip won, in a consortium with National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC), involves a lump sum engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation, commissioning and start-up for the oil field located 84 kilometers offshore Abu Dhabi.
It is divided into four production artificial islands (Central, North, South, and West), with processing facilities at the Central Complex.
The scope of work covers 240 kilometers of subsea pipelines, 128 kilometers of subsea composite and fiber-optic cables, and almost 30,000 tons of offshore structures (jackets, riser platforms, flare towers and bridges), including approximately 3,000 tons of islands modules and bridges.
The contract also includes the complete initial production facilities for temporary wells hook up to serve initial production distributed amongst the North, South and Central islands.
Technip's operating center in Abu Dhabi will execute the overall engineering and participate in procurement, on-island works, cable installation and initial production. The project is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2015. – TradeArabia News Service
