US engineering group to provide project management consultancy services

US engineering group KBR has won a project management consultancy (PMC) contract on two major offshore oil and gas field developments in Abu Dhabi.

KBR has been awarded a contract to manage the Front End Engineering and Design Services (FEED) phase of the Dalma Gas Field Development and the Detailed Design and Surveys phase of the Hail & Ghasha Islands project at Abu Dhabi, according to a statement published on 15 August.

“Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide project management consultancy services,” the company said in the statement. “This work is expected to be performed over 24 months, with an option to extend another 12 months.”

MEED reported in May 2017 that KBR was the frontrunner in the bidding to win the consultancy work for both developments.

ADNOC is undertaking a project for the development of the Dalma Gas Field in line with its stated objective to deliver a more sustainable and economic gas supply by implementing a fully integrated gas master plan that increases productivity, performance and delivery.

The Hail & Ghasha Project, one of the largest sour gas fields projects that ADNOC is developing, is forecast to produce about 1 billion cubic feet of sour gas per day.

The infrastructure requirements for the Hail & Ghasha Project include a minimum of eleven offshore artificial islands to be designed and constructed.
