Engineering and construction giant KBR, Inc. has said it has been awarded a Project Management Services (PMC) contract by OMV Offshore Abu Dhabi GmbH on behalf of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) for work on a project offshore Abu Dhabi.
KBR will be responsible for the management of the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) phase of the Hail & Ghasha Development project in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
KBR will also perform PMC services for the Detailed Engineering phase of the project under a contract awarded by Occidental of Abu Dhabi Ltd. which is jointly managing the project with OMV Offshore Abu Dhabi GmbH on behalf of ADNOC.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide project management consultancy services. This work is expected to be performed over 24 months.
ADNOC is undertaking a project for the development of the Hail & Ghasha Gas Field in line with its objective to deliver a more sustainable and economic gas supply by implementing a fully integrated gas master plan that increases productivity, performance and delivery.
The Hail & Ghasha Project, one of the largest sour gas fields projects that ADNOC is developing, is forecast to produce about 1 billion cubic feet of sour gas per day, KBR said.
The infrastructure requirements for the Hail & Ghasha Project include a minimum of eleven offshore artificial islands to be designed and constructed.
“KBR is very pleased to be awarded this important project in support of Abu Dhabi’s Gas Infrastructure Improvement Plan,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, EMEA. “We look forward to the opportunity to reestablish ourselves amongst the UAE’s top Project Management Consultants as we continue to build on KBR’s long and successful history within the ADNOC group of companies.”
“This contract demonstrates KBR’s ability to establish strong local partnerships as well as our global oil and gas capabilities for greenfield project developments in any location across the globe,” Ibrahim continued.
Revenue associated with this project was undisclosed and will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR’s E&C Business Segment in the second half of 2017.
