ADNOC inaugurates new Taweelah gas compression plant

Inauguration comes less than a month after Abu Dhabi’s SPC approved ADNOC’s integrated gas strategy that will enable the UAE to achieve gas self-sufficiency

Abu Dhabi, UAE – The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) inaugurated, today, its technologically advanced Taweelah Gas Compression Plant, which will ensure uninterrupted gas supplies to major Abu Dhabi industries and the Northern Emirates.

The plant, located 50 kilometers north of Abu Dhabi city, will utilize up to 450 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of sales gas. The gas will be delivered to the facility by ADNOC Gas Processing’s recently installed Maqta-Taweelah pipeline.

Among those attending the inauguration were H.E. Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and ADNOC Group CEO, and Joe Kaeser, President and CEO of Siemens AG, the main contractor for the project. Other attendees included H.E. Ernst Peter Fischer, Germany’s Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates; Abu Dhabi government officials; members of ADNOC and Siemens’ management teams; and ADNOC customers.

H.E. Dr. Sultan Al Jaber said: “The Taweelah Gas Compression Plant supports the nation’s increasing demand for energy and will play a critical role in the UAE’s drive towards economic diversification by supporting major industrial users. It effectively expands the national gas infrastructure for the efficient delivery of gas within the country. This will allow ADNOC to better service its customers throughout the UAE and to implement one of our key strategic imperatives, which is to provide a sustainable and economic supply of gas.”

The inauguration of the Taweelah Gas Compression Plant comes less than a month after Abu Dhabi’s Supreme Petroleum Council approved ADNOC’s new integrated gas strategy, which will enable the UAE to achieve gas self-sufficiency, with the aim of potentially transitioning to a net gas exporter.

“When our customer told us this is a strategically significant project for the UAE and will drive economic development, we committed to deliver in unprecedented time and reliability,” said Kaeser. “Completed in record time, ADNOC’s Taweelah Gas Compression Plant is a global benchmark and a great example of how excellent teams, working closely with our strong partners, enable us to deliver on big promises.”

The Taweelah Gas Compression Plant comprises three compression trains, each with a processing capacity of 225 mmscfd. At any one time, two of the compression trains will be operational, with the third on standby.

Completed under a compressed time schedule and adhering to the highest safety standards, the Taweelah Gas Compression Plant represents an important step in achieving the ADNOC Group’s 2030 smart growth strategy of maximizing value from Abu Dhabi’s hydrocarbon resources.
