Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Ltd. (Gasco) has awarded a project management consultancy contract to Foster Wheeler International Corp. to oversee engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of Gasco’s third natural gas liquids (NGL) train at Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.
The work is one of three Gasco projects in a suite of five integrated developments being undertaken on behalf of Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (OGJ Online, June 19, 2002). Abu Dhabi Co. for Onshore Oil Operations is undertaking gas gathering and reinjection, and Abu Dhabi Refining Co. (Takreer) is handling condensate storage and shipping. The other projects are a new gas plant at Asab (AGD-II) and the Onshore Gas Development project (OGD-III facilities) at Habshan field.
The third train at Ruwais will process NGL transported via a new pipeline from OGD-III and AGD-II, supplemented by a new liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) stream from the adjacent Takreer refinery. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of first quarter 2008.
The NGL will be processed in a 24,400 tonne/day fractionation and treatment train to produce ethane, liquefied propane and butane, and pentane and heavier hydrocarbons. The project includes four 83,600 cu m LPG storage tanks, one 76,000 cu m pentane storage tank, and a two-berth extension to the export jetty.
Tratos is very pleased to contribute toward achieving Goal 7 of the UN Global Goals to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, Goal 13: Climate Action, and Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.
