The Dalma field is part of the Ghasha Concession which is the world’s largest offshore sour gas development and an important enabler of gas self-sufficiency for the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The two EPC contracts, awarded to National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) and a joint venture (JV) between Técnicas Reunidas and Target Engineering, include the construction of gas conditioning facilities, wellhead topsides, pipelines and umbilicals. 70% of the award value will flow back into the UAE’s economy under ADNOC’s successful In-Country Value (ICV) programme, reinforcing ADNOC’s commitment to ensuring more economic value remains in the country from the contracts it awards.
Package A of the two Dalma EPC contracts was awarded to NPCC and is valued at US$514 million (AED1.89 billion). It covers the EPC of four offshore wellhead towers, pipelines and umbilicals in Hair Dalma, Satah, and Bu Haseer fields.
Package B, awarded to the Técnicas Reunidas and Target Engineering JV, is valued at US$950 million (AED3.49 billion) and covers the EPC of gas conditioning facilities for gas dehydration, compression and associated utilities on Arzanah Island located 80 km from Abu Dhabi.
Yaser Saeed Almazrouei, ADNOC Upstream Executive Director, said: “The award of the Dalma EPC contracts as well as ongoing artificial island construction and development drilling underscore the progress of the Ghasha mega development. As we continue to execute this strategic project, we are ensuring it delivers substantial In-Country Value to drive economic growth and support the objectives of the UAE’s Principles of the 50, set out by the country’s wise Leadership.
“ADNOC and its partners remain guided by our strategic production capacity objectives and sustainability ambitions. Together, we are responsibly progressing the Ghasha mega development to maximise value as well as support the gas self sufficiency goal of the UAE.”
Both engineering contracts are expected to be completed in 2025 and will enable the Dalma field to produce around 340 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of natural gas. The offshore Dalma field is located 190 km northwest of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. ADNOC has advanced orders for long lead items and completed seven development wells at Dalma, enabling smooth and expedited project delivery.
ADNOC and its partners have also awarded a contract to Technip Energies to update the FEED for the concession.
In the Ghasha concession area, three artificial islands have already been completed, as enabling works continue. Production from the concession is expected to start around 2025, ramping up to produce more than 1.5 billion scfd before the end of the decade.
