State-owned Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco) has awarded UK-based Amec the project management consultancy (PMC) contract for two offshore projects.

The contract covers the management of the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of Nasr phase-1 and Umm-Lulu phase-1 offshore projects in Abu Dhabi. Amec said it was a ‘multimillion-dollar’ contract involving 30 months of PMC services.

Adma-Opco is developing the Umm al-Lulu, Nasr and Sarb oil fields as part of Abu Dhabi’s plan to boost offshore production capacity to 1.75 million barrels a day (b/d) by 2020, from 1.1 million b/d currently.

In February, Adma-Opco invited EPC firms to bid for two packages at the Umm al-Lulu field, due to be submitted by 24 April and 22 May respectively.

Adma-Opco is a joint venture of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc), the UK’s BP, France-based Total, Japan’s Inpex and Japan Oil Development Company.
