Petrofac, a leading international service provider to the energy industry, has been awarded an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract by ADNOC Gas for its Habshan Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) project, one of the largest carbon capture projects in the Middle East and North Africa region.
The contract is valued at more than US$600 million and involves the delivery of carbon capture units, associated pipeline infrastructure and a network of wells for carbon dioxide (CO2) recovery and injection. Located at the Habshan gas processing plant, 150 kilometres southwest of Abu Dhabi, the project is part of ADNOC’s accelerated decarbonisation plan.
Tareq Kawash, Petrofac's Group Chief Executive, said: “By accelerating plans to make energy cleaner, the UAE is investing in its future. We look forward to combining our CCUS expertise and UAE project delivery experience to support ADNOC Gas in delivering on their decarbonisation plans, maximising energy output while minimising emissions, and helping to support the UAE’s energy transition.”
Elie Lahoud, Chief Operating Officer, Petrofac Engineering & Construction, commented: “Petrofac is committed to supporting ADNOC Gas in delivering lower-carbon growth. We have over 30 years’ experience of successful delivery here in the UAE and continue to put In-Country Value at the centre of our operations, utilising the local supply chain, developing capabilities and creating new opportunities for UAE Nationals.”
Petrofac has been deploying its expertise in gas processing, transport, and storage, to support the early development and definition of large-scale CCUS projects since 2015. The company first established a presence in the UAE in 1991 and has developed a large workforce to support both regional and international energy projects. With a commitment to deliver In-Country Value, Emiratisation is a key business priority and Petrofac is actively promoting current career opportunities.
