Petrofac Wins Brownfield Consultancy Contract in Abu Dhabi

Petrofac, the international oil & gas facilities service provider, has been awarded an engineering consultancy contract by the Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Operations (ADCO) for de-bottlenecking services for the onshore North East Bab field, located approximately 50 kilometres southwest of Abu Dhabi. This is the first brownfield contract secured by Petrofac with ADCO, which is a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

Specialist consultants from Petrofac Brownfield, which is part of the group’s Facilities Management business, are working on the project in both Abu Dhabi and Aberdeen, Scotland. Using extensive operating experience and UK North Sea techniques, Petrofac is reviewing options for changes to operating conditions to enable the de-bottlenecking of critical equipment. The aim is to add value and increase production without major technical changes to ADCO’s Al Dabb’iya and Rumaitha processing plants.

Bill Bayliss, VP Petrofac Brownfield, said: “This contract award further confirms our strategy for supplying our differentiated brownfield services in the Middle East. We look forward to working alongside ADCO to deliver real added value to this new customer, using our significant experience of working on mature and constrained facilities.”
