Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO) has awarded Technip a contract for project management consultancy (PMC) services for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phases of the Zakum Oil Lines Replacement Project-Phase 1 (ZKOL).
The ZKOL project serves ADMA-OPCO’s objective of replacing aged oil pipelines in the Zakum field, aiming to enhance integrity assessment and sustain oil production. Accordingly, the first phase consists of about 90 kilometers of oil pipelines replacement and associated wellhead towers modification work.
With Technip’s scope of work covering the overall management consultancy of the EPC phases, the Group’s operating center in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, will carry out the project, which is scheduled to be completed in 2016.
This new award continues to reinforce Technip’s positioning on PMC activities. Leveraging its long-lasting experience in executing challenging projects, the Group has developed a comprehensive competency and created an entity dedicated to PMC, providing experienced personnel.
Riccardo Moizo, Senior Vice President of Technip PMC, stated: “We are delighted to have been awarded this project, as it further strengthens our collaboration with ADMA-OPCO as well as our presence in the Middle East, where Technip is providing PMC services for key projects.”
Vaseem Khan, Senior Vice President of Technip in the Middle East, commented: “This award follows the successful conceptual and front-end engineering design delivered by Technip in 2012 for the Zakum field. It reflects ADMA-OPCO’s trust in our capabilities in delivering key projects for them.”
