Consolidated Contractors Company wins $84m contract to boost production

Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco) has awarded Greece’s Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) an $84m construction contract for a facilities upgrade on Das Island.

The Athens-based company is charged with the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work for upgrading facilities that will help increase production capacity on the lower Zakum offshore field by 100,000 barrels a day (b/d)

CCC won the contract ahead of local companies National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) and Adyard Abu Dhabi LLC (Adyard), and India’s Larsen & Toubro.

US firm Mott MacDonald undertook the front-end engineering and design (feed) work. British engineering company Penspen will conduct the procurement management consultancy.

Adma-Opco’s efforts to increase production is part of Abu Dhabi’s strategy to boost crude production. Adnoc’s offshore arm alone plans to increase production to 970,000 b/d by 2017 at a cost of at least $10bn, according to the company’s chief executive officer, Ali Rashid al-Jarwan.

Das Island, located 180km from Abu Dhabi city, is used as an offshore base for Adma-Opco and Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company (Adgas). The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) subsidiaries export crude and liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the international markets from the island.
