UK-headquartered engineering services firm Penspen has been awarded a detailed engineering contract for crude receiving facilities at Jebel Dhana from Abu Dhabi-based Target Engineering Construction Company.

The scope of work includes the development of facilities for unloading the Upper Zakhum (UZ) field and Non-System (NS) crudes at Jebel Dhana from tankers, Penspen said in a press statement.

This is the second contract awarded by the Abu Dhabi-based engineering, procurement and construction company to Penspen this year. The contract value wasn't disclosed.

The statement said the work would be carried out using the existing single point mooring (SPM-2), subsea pipeline, onshore pipeline and gravity pipeline to the three large tanks already in place.

Both UZ and NS crudes would be blended and the crude will be transferred to Ruwais Refinery West to feed the crude oil distillation unit (CDU) with 420,000 barrels per day, the statement added.
