27. Shah Gas Development
The work on the Shah field is aimed at
producing up to 1 billion cubic feet a day (cf/d) of gas to help boost Adnoc’s output to a targeted 6 billion cf/d.
The gas will primarily be used as feedstock for new power, desalination and petrochemical plants in Abu Dhabi and the northern emirates, but some will be reinjected into Abu Dhabi’s oil fields to maintain reservoir pressure.
The gas produced at the field will be stripped of its sulphur, which will be transported separately for processing and distribution at facilities in Habshan and Ruwais. The natural gas will travel on the same route.
The emirate will have to move forward with its delayed Mirfa independent water and power project as soon as possible to avoid a potential power shortage
